    This did solved my headphone problem but I have to choose everytime I want to use a headset. It would have been good if the app can decide itself automatically as shown. FM radio cannot be used regardless.

    My phone thought the headphones were plugged in. This is the perfect solution for that problem. Brilliant and to be fair probably worth the 3 quid

    I got sand in my headphone jack so my phone thinks there are headphones always plugged in. This prevented me from talking on the phone or hearing any audio. This app fixed it with a single click.

    The headphone jack on my Galaxy S3 broke, so no sound would come through the speakers or Bluetooth devices. This app allows you to disable the headphone jack, while keeping the other audio outputs available.
