Play/Pause/Skip provides big, 'always on' media player buttons - perfect for basic media player control whist you're driving.

Controls provided: play/pause toggle; skip to next track; volume up/down (swipe from one button to the other).

Different media players respond to different command sets. To configure which command set(s) are issued when the buttons are pressed, access the 'Settings' menu/action bar option. You may need to experiment to determine which set(s) work with your media player(s).

Note: This is not a media player, it is merely a 'large button' + 'screen stays on/active' controller for you media player. Your media player will need to be running in order for the buttons to work.

Tags: play pause button, playpause button, play pause, button play/pause, google button for media player, associate play pause button to, play/ pause button.

Recently changed in this version

New 'Setting' allows you to hide the 'Skip/Next' button (which leaves you with one, giant Play/Pause button only).

    Now I can pay more attention to driving with less distraction (having to bring out of sleep mode and push small buttons). I highly recommend this app! Thank you dev!

    Good looking app, but wouldn't it be even better if it came as a widget? Not much diff if I open up the music app to stop or play. A widget should not be such troublesome. Expect a good update.

    Nice app, but wouldn't it be even better if it came as widget? I came back to add another STAR, because it deserves more fans. No ads, simple and free.

    Does exactly what it says it does in a small package and no ads. This is perfect for listening to music while I drive since the application doesn't let the device go into standby. I just shuffle all my music and when I track comes on I don't want to lis

    Simple elegant, justifies its purpose. Suggestion - Make buttons more like when they are pressed, I mean the down state. Thanks.
