The second day I had my new EVO, I decided to listen to music while I was exercising. I connected the phone to the exerciser via a patch cable, tapped Play, and off I went. Things went crazy from there. I kept seeing that my phone thought that I was trying to voice-dial someone and it would rewind to the beginning of the song and all sorts of other unwanted behavior. A little Googling turned up this gem. Installed and problem fixed. Period. THANK YOU!

Awesome solution to a very annoying problem. Google/Android need to incorporate this App into Gingerbread.

Thank you a million times! Took my EVO + Pandora experience from crap to awesome. For some reason it doesn't work while I'm playing music in Subsonic though...

Your app has improved my life Nothing worse than music skipping or random phone calls being made by your headphones half way through a set at the gym. Thank you guys, seriously, this is great.
