Now this app can function as it supposed to (we where able to finally add the Sony monochrome low power modes). The watch now really looks like the normal Sony watch, with the addition of full media control ;-)

DMediaControl is an application to swipe and control your media with a SmartWatch in a discrete way. Your SmartWatch appears to be turned off (or if you choose chowing the time), but with a swipe across the screen you can control your media.
This application is not intended to display any album art or any other media information on your SmartWatch. As the title suggest it is a discrete way of controlling the media on your phone with a SmartWatch. Because there is no valuable battery life wasted on graphics, notifications, or any other battery consuming tasks, you can leave the application on for a long time and just swipe across the screen of your SmartWatch for media control.

The application uses the headset media controls to communicate with the media player on your phone.

On start up this application displays one graphic on the SmartWatch to show the orientation and the swipe directions. When touched the graphic disappears and you are ready to control your media.

Added SmartWatch 2 type time viewer (also compatible with SmartWatch 1). Now your SmartWatch also looks like a watch while you control your media with DMediaControl.

    Doesn't work as described, screen just stays on and blank so that'll kill ya battery pretty quick and it's just bad implementation

    If the app actually implemented the headset controls then it would be worth it. Unfortunately it will only play/pause the built in media player regardless of the app playing media at the time.
