Turn the button on a wired headset into a remote control for your music player - and much more!

Headset Button Controller is very configurable, allowing you to play music, change tracks, adjust volume, answer phone calls, start Voice Command and many other things, just by clicking the button on your headset.

Headset Button Controller is shipped with a powerful default configuration, but you can change almost every action performed. Once you have configured it with your preferences, it runs in the background using almost no CPU. It has been tested with a wide variety of different Android devices and music apps and works with both single-button headsets, and Android-specific 3-button headsets.

Default configuration for single-button headsets (center button for 3-button headsets):
* Single press: play / pause (+ answer call / end call)
* Double press: next track (+ decline call / mute microphone)
* Triple press: previous track
* Quadruple press: previous track (2x)
* Long press: Volume control [2]
* Press and hold: Fast forward [3]
* Double press and hold: Rewind [3]
* Triple press and hold: disabled

All of the above options are configurable to any of the following:
* Stop
* Play / pause
* Next track
* Previous track
* Previous track (2x)
* Mute / unmute
* Voice command
* Voice search
* Redial last number
* Say current time (Text-To-Speech required)
* Launch app
* Launch shortcut
* Tasker task [1]
* Switch profile

Additionally the long press options are configurable to any of the following:
* Volume control [2]
* Rewind [3]
* Fast forward [3]

[1] Requires the app 'Tasker'
[2] While the button is held down, the volume is initially reset to the minimum limit (see below) and then raised until the button is released
[3] Not every music player app supports rewind / fast forward

With a 3-button headset, volume control is also configurable with the left and right headset buttons.

Music app selection
Headset Button Controller controls the currently running music app. You are also able to explicitly specify which installed music app you want to control.

Volume control features
Headset Button Controller remembers the music volume when the headphone is unplugged and can restore it when the headphone is plugged in again.
* Min volume limit: Start volume level of the 'volume control' command
* Max volume limit: Ensures that the headset music volume never exceeds this limit

Call features
You are also able to control calls with the headset button:
* answer call / end call on single press (configurable)
* decline call / mute microphone on double press (configurable)
* adjust volume during a call (see volume control)
* announce caller name (Text-To-Speech required)
You can also configure Headset Button Controller to automatically answer an incoming call after a configurable delay.

Headset plug in / out
You can configure an action to be performed when the headset gets plugged in / out.

Profiles
You can create different 'configuration profiles' which you can switch between. Add a widget or a shortcut to your home screen to easily change your profile. It is also possible to switch profile from the 'Tasker' or 'Locale' app (Locale plug-in). All settings can be backed up on SD card.

Recently changed in this version

new "Pressy mode":
Route audio through speakers even when headset is plugged in.
Hint: Create a separate profile for pressy to easily switch between normal headset and pressy.

Notes:
* Jelly Bean: The long press commands of the center button are reserved by Google Now and cannot be configured with this app.
* Headset Button Controller cannot support the separate volume control buttons on the iPhone headset - this is a limitation of the Android framework.

    I also have a problem that when I press play/stop on my headphones sometimes it plays through the speakers waking everyone in the office up.

    The ability to choose speakers or phones works and is most useful. It's nice to be able to disable the pop up menu when the plug is inserted because I use Tasker to popup my own custom menu. Tasker integration works to change profile via that same custom menu. HBC is now my 3rd favourite app after Tasker and utter!; get these three and your smartphone can do anything.

    When headphones are plugged in an phone is restarted, app doesn't recognize headphones and plays music through speakerphone instead of headphones. Pressy seems to have worsened my listening experience. Thanks guys/girls.

    Great application. I use this application to control Spotify because the native controller isn't smart enough to identify what music application is active when the phone is locked and will default to controlling the Google Play music app. This app is perfect for my use case. I was worried that a persistent app like this would drain battery, but it seems to have no effect on my phone.

    ....especially if you hate digging out your phone, pressing the sleep button and navigating your tunes. My only gripe is that it has its days where it works flawlessly, and then days where it seriously lags. I've been using this app for two years now so I know my way around it.

    I'd been using Jays remote app but since my phone updated it didn't like the long press. The way this app handles the volume up / down is genius! Love it! Great work.
