** This app will not block GOOGLE VOICE SEARCH on JELLYBEAN **
** The voice search is activated by long holding the microphone button, and the mapping of microphone button is actually hard coded in JellyBean itself. This is currently tracked issue here: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=36026

The only work around is if you are root, and it is described here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=32999600&postcount=38 **

    Worked great at first but now skips and pauses songs every once in a while. But other then that it does its job

    That only app good for me! Others after some time using headphones causes to freeze phone or restart. Still, Youtube pause problem exist.

    I had the problem where if the headphones jack was wiggled then it acted as a remote or would say "please unlock the device" and this solved it. Thank you! 5/5

    HTC EVO 4G was voice dialing, skipping songs, wreaking havoc, then just stopped working, period. End of story. No sound at all. Warranty expired, my next step was to get a new phone. Didn't want to, who wants to spend more money, right? Thanks WizDroid, you rock. It works perfectly, like brand new from the start. I'm so HAPPY to have my music back ; )

    Okay, so I have no idea what's happening. It was worming before. Now later on today it's not. =.[ And I never turned it off, either. It just stopped working. The headset icon has a mic now. At first it just showed headphones. That's how I knew it *was* working. Oh well... Fix maybe?

    It doesn't work for me on an HTC One running android 4.1.1, as others have said. I really need my phone to stop randomly dialing the last number so if you could extend coverage to this phone I would be very happy.
