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.

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.

This is the full version of Headset Button Controller. To check if this app works with your phone / music player correctly, we suggest you first install the trial version of this app before buying.

* Fix battery drain on android wear/watch

* 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.

    Crash on launch moto x 2nd Gen. Trial worked great... Disappointed

    My wired headphones by default stopped music on single click, but skipped tracks on double click. Double clicking often would register as single, very annoying. This app let me remap single click to go to the next track.

    Worked great on my G2 until the last update. Please fix.

    Been a happy user for a while. Five stars if you use it on phone only. However, one star if you use Android Wear. Notification shows up on watch and then disappears when you try to view it. This rapidly drains the watch battery! Adds almost another day of battery life on Sony SW3 when this app is disabled! Please fix.

    Tried the free version first. Worked! Had a question for the developer about cpu usage which was answered promptly. He more than deserves my $3.00. Adding volume control to a one button headset is priceless! Thanks.

    Did not work with original handset, does not work with my wireless headphones, not even when plugged in. Nice idea, but no effect.
