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

just what I need.. just one thing. I can't find the settings that turns wave control off after I've exited the app. I don't want it to remain in the background.

Nice app. Works great. Integrates with Tasker but to a very limited level. Please add shortcuts to the options then a user can run Tasker tasks directly. As well another plugin that allows settings control......meaning a user could change the Screen On Only mode or Only When Flat modes at will. Other than that i really like this app.

Issues on Galaxy S5 Worked great on my old S3. Upgraded to an S5 and set it up accordingly, but it just seems to take several waves over the sensor to acknowledge anything, sometimes not at all. Tried many things but doesn't seem to work. Emailed dev regarding issue but haven't heard anything yet. Real shame, best feature to have. Now just a wasted paid app! Will continue to wait and hopefully a resolution will come. Otherwise I'll try my luck on XDA.
