If you would like to help put Wave Control in your native language, please email me!

Player Compatibility List:
Any Music/Streaming/Video app that supports "Headset Controls"

Easy to use, just wave your hand over the sensor (usually located just next to the earpiece on your phone).
Holding it there (hover) - Pause/Resume
One wave across - Next Song
Two waves across - Previous Song
Three times - Enable/Disable the controls

*Be sure to enable Headset Button Control in your player of choice

Some Notes:
Tip for the hover gesture: if you move your hand away too quickly it'll register a wave
After an action, there is a 1 second delay before another gesture will be registered
Practice your wave techniques by checking the "Last Action"
If you're getting another player responding to the commands, use the Set Target Media App setting

**IMPORTANT**
The sensor WILL behave differently on different phones. I don't have the resources to test every phone. If there is a problem, please email me at [email protected] and give me a chance to figure it out before leaving a bad review!

Incompatibility List:
*HTC EVO 4G (erratic sensor reading cause commands to trigger on their own)

Permissions Needed:
Wake Lock: So it will work when the screen is off on some phones
Read Phone State: So it can switch modes when phone is ringing or in-call
Vibrate: To use when screen if off or app not in focus
Write Settings: For Screen Off functionality
Get Tasks: For Recent Apps functionality
Call Phone: For new Call Controls options
Modify Audio Settings: For Speakerphone in call controls

Used to work It used to work great, but as soon as my phone updated to Android 5.0, there is often a 10, 20, even 30 second or longer delay before it responds. Please update, I really like to use this app while driving, but right now it is useless

Awesome app On my Note 3 and now my Note Edge I have arrows for this app but on my partners S6 edge she has to wave to control it, which my Note 2 used to have, I want to wave not have to go this way for next that way for back and if you get it wrong the volume goes up and down, can I change it to wave?
