Details:
If you use your Pebble Smart Watch to control one or multiple Music/Audio Apps on your Android Device and if you find that your Pebble should give you more control over your music...You've found the app you are looking for!

If you change the Music/Audio App that responds to the Pebble Media buttons, you know that this process requires a few steps each time you wish to change the app.

Music Boss gives you total control over your Music/Audio App (Retune, Audible, Google Play Music, PowerAmp, etc) using the Pebble's existing Music Watch App or the Music Boss Watch App. Music Boss allows you to create a list of your favourite music apps and quickly change which one responds to the media commands on the Pebble Watch.

Best of all, you can change your current Music app right from your Pebble!

Quickly launch your current music app from your Pebble watch. No need to reach into your pocket to launch Retune, Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, Audible or others.

If you are ready to take total control of your Music and Audio Apps with your Pebble, give Music Boss a try!

Install the App, choose one of two App Tutorials and start controlling your music like a Music Boss.

If Music Boss is not working for your Music App, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. I will test the Music app in question, and provide feedback on whether the issue is with Music Boss or the music app itself.

The master of unlocking, music Loaded with features and customization options. Simply the best way to control multiple music apps on pebble. Everything just works. There seems to be an option for everything that was on my wishlist. Perfect for switching from podcast to streaming music apps & adjusting volume while exercising or cycling without stopping to pull out your phone. Love seeing title info for everything. Awesome developer support.

Doesn't work The app never displays the right track information on my watch, and the controls always have at least a 15 second delay.

Very useful especially, saves having to deal with phone lockscreens and makes life easier in the cat.

Confusing versioning For some reason, the pebble app on the app store has an old version. When using that version you constantly get reminded to download the latest version. This causes a popup to show up every time you look at the phone app, and covers up all the pebble app details with an update reminder text. So the app has a built in version checking feature that will obscure its use if versions dont match exactly. Reeally annoying. If it works, let me use it, leave updates to be optional.
