Headset Blocker

Headset Blocker


Tired of your phone randomly skipping songs because it thinks your headphones are controlling the music? This simple widget allows you to block and intercept unwanted headphone control signals which seem to accidentally occur from time to time.


It does not (and will not in the foreseeable future) support ICS+. For reasons why, see github project: https://github.com/dlew/android-headset-blocker

Removed app from ICS+ listings, so that people don't think it will work.

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...

HTC Evo 3D ICS... This app still works on Evo 3D ICS. Cant comment on that phone cause the app says it incompatible so I have to use my other phone to comment this. This app just saved me from smashing my phone, but was very frustrating all the steps I had to take just to get ahold of it cause its blocked on the phone that needed it. Finally I can listen to music with headphones again. App 10/10 Thankyou!
