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.

Some great features Settings give me the controls I was looking for. Now I'm a pebble-chromecast media ninja. Tasker makes this perfect, switching based on the media I'm using on chromecast. Before you give this 4 stars dig in the settings. Maybe add the feature to switch between apps from pebble, but that's all.

Really Good! Lots of settings a configurations to get exactly the functionality you need! Even tasker integration that allows the watchapp to be opened automatically when you open a media player on the phone and then return to your watchface when you unplug your earphones.

Awesome Within seconds of installing the app it made a huge difference. I frequently switch between play and podcast addict and it gets annoying having to pull out the phone when the wrong so is playing. Music Boss makes light work of this and in a slick manner. Brilliant!
