PlayTool is a program for controlling android music players, system or external.

This program is NOT music player, it only different players controller. You can rewind audio or change track just for two touches without switching to the player, just launch this app by long-press Search button or use other methods and control your music!

More than 15 players are supported now, more later. Some of supported players:
— system Android player (except 2.3 and above! It's system limitation, that I'm trying to resolve)
— system MIUI player
— system HTC Sense player
— system SGS2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab players
— andLess
— Astro Player + Astro Player Nova
— bTunes Music
— Meridian
— MortPlayer Music + Mort Audio Book Player
— PlayerPro
— PowerAmp
— Rhapsody
— RockIt (partially)
— RockOn (aka cubed, ³)
— NRG Player
— TTPod (full general version support, limited 'international' and 'ads' versions support)
— RealPlayer
— … more players later!

Unfortunately Winamp and doubleTwist players broke support for external controlling.

You can open the panel by long-press Search or Camera button (depending on preferences), connecting wired or bluetooth headset or using notification bar. Tap outside the app window to close. Use the Menu button to access the settings.
If you find any problem or have any question or idea, send me a email from settings or post comments in my blog (artroman.ru). I can't answer here in comments :(

    Works great with PlayerPro. This is such a handy app. I use it everywhere, mostly for pausing my music when I'm about to watch a video etc. Lovely concept, lovely design, no problems so far.
