Headset Button ControllerTrial


Turn the button on a wired headset into a remote control for your music player - and much more!

Headset Button Controller is very configurable, allowing you to play music, change tracks, adjust volume, answer phone calls, start Voice Command and many other things, just by clicking the button on your headset.

Headset Button Controller is shipped with a powerful default configuration, but you can change almost every action performed. Once you have configured it with your preferences, it runs in the background using almost no CPU. It has been tested with a wide variety of different Android devices and music apps and works with both single-button headsets, and Android-specific 3-button headsets.


Default configuration for single-button headsets (center button for 3-button headsets):
* Single press: play / pause (+ answer call / end call)
* Double press: next track (+ decline call / mute microphone)
* Triple press: previous track
* Quadruple press: previous track (2x)
* Long press: Volume control [2]
* Press and hold: Fast forward [3]
* Double press and hold: Rewind [3]
* Triple press and hold: disabled

All of the above options are configurable to any of the following:
* Stop
* Play / pause
* Next track
* Previous track
* Previous track (2x)
* Mute / unmute
* Voice command
* Voice search
* Redial last number
* Say current time (Text-To-Speech required)
* Launch app
* Launch shortcut
* Tasker task [1]
* Switch profile

Additionally the long press options are configurable to any of the following:
* Volume control [2]
* Rewind [3]
* Fast forward [3]

[1] Requires the app 'Tasker'
[2] While the button is held down, the volume is initially reset to the minimum limit (see below) and then raised until the button is released
[3] Not every music player app supports rewind / fast forward

With a 3-button headset, volume control is also configurable with the left and right headset buttons.

Music app selection
Headset Button Controller controls the currently running music app. You are also able to explicitly specify which installed music app you want to control.

Volume control features
Headset Button Controller remembers the music volume when the headphone is unplugged and can restore it when the headphone is plugged in again.
* Min volume limit: Start volume level of the 'volume control' command
* Max volume limit: Ensures that the headset music volume never exceeds this limit

Call features
You are also able to control calls with the headset button:
* answer call / end call on single press (configurable)
* decline call / mute microphone on double press (configurable)
* adjust volume during a call (see volume control)
* announce caller name (Text-To-Speech required)
You can also configure Headset Button Controller to automatically answer an incoming call after a configurable delay.

Headset plug in / out
You can configure an action to be performed when the headset gets plugged in / out.

Profiles
You can create different 'configuration profiles' which you can switch between. Add a widget or a shortcut to your home screen to easily change your profile. It is also possible to switch profile from the 'Tasker' or 'Locale' app (Locale plug-in). All settings can be backed up on SD card.


===============
This is the trial version of Headset Button Controller. With this trial version you can try out this app works with your phone / music player correctly before buying.

Recent changes:
Fix audio routing for headphones.

new "Pressy mode":
Route audio through speakers even when headset is plugged in.
Hint: Create a separate profile for pressy to easily switch between normal headset and pressy.

Notes:
* Jelly Bean: The long press commands of the center button are reserved by Google Now and cannot be configured with this app.
* Headset Button Controller cannot support the separate volume control buttons on the iPhone headset - this is a limitation of the Android framework.

Nice, check out Tactile Player on the market, it lets you do the same except with the phones volume and power buttons. (For those of us without expensive headphones).

works but could use some improvements This app consistently works in that when you program the buttons for various functionality (pause, skip to next track, tell the time) it just works. However, by using this app I no longer see the song being played at the lock screen with Google Music. I also like the fact that you can set sounds when you press the button so you can hear how many times you pressed the button.

The app does all it claims, but for me (att s4), when the service is running the media info and controls do not show up on the lockscreen. Is it just me?

Mike Not one to usually rate an app, but feel this is pretty deserving of one. I'm using this to be able to use all my iPhone compatible headsets on my Samsung. There's only a little from making this a perfect app, in my opinion, but so far it has outperformed the others by a mile.

Full of bugs Worked for me on my HTC one but when it did, there were glitches like as soon as I pressed volume up, it would continue to raise the volume to the max and wouldn't stop!
