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

(Optional) Device Admin - Screen Lock: Used as an alternative method to turn off the screen if the default one does not work. It will need to be disabled prior to uninstalling the app if used.
