Tired of picking up the phone from your pocket just to skip the track?
VolumeNext Free maps volume up/down hardware buttons to "next/previous track"
only if the screen is off (or in keyguard mode).

VolumeNext Free works with many third-party music player apps because it uses the Android standard channel to communicate with those apps.

In other words, we can do almost nothing for apps that do not support the standard method.

See the paid edition, "VolumeNext" app for additional functions:
- three mapping modes: vol+/-(do-nothing-mode), next/prev, next/pause
- select mapping mode individually in screen-off mode and keyguard mode. Vol+/- in screen-off mode and next/prev in keyguard is recommended for usual cases.
- select when to enable mapping: headset is plugged, or not, or both.

Unofficially supported devices:
- Xperia GX
- Xperia SX
- HTC Evo 3D

Unofficially supported players:
- Google Play Music
- Amazon Cloud Player
- Poweramp (check Settings > Headset > Respond To Headset Buttons)
- Winamp
- WALKMAN
- HTC Music App

Search keywords:
volume, key, mapping, music, playback control, track, next, previous, pause, screen off, keyguard, lock screen, in pocket, shuffle, skip

Recently changed in this version

    If you're trying out different apps to skip tracks with volume buttons, this one is by far the best, had trouble with every other app, this one works flawlessly!

    Works as advertised, but can't change volume when screen is locked and no options to modify anything

    Both keys seem to just start the song from the beginning.

    Next & previous track work well. However settings page always forces close (on Sony Xperia Mini). So got refund on full edition & back to free version.

    I was missing this functionality from previous custom roms! Now I can use the volume button to skip tracks on my stock Nexus 4.
