    Great app! The only one I could find that successfully solved audio routing to the headset ONLY, when my phone was sending it to both the headset and speaker. Only issue I'm left with is audio cut off at the beginning of notification sounds on my headset. Realise this is due to Bluetooth power-saving, wondering if it's possible to add a delay feature for media audio in the same way that TTS has o

    when my headset is on, but ... I can't get this app to allow streaming radio or google maps to come over bluetooth headset. In fact - when my headset is connected, these apps can't even be heard on the device speaker. What a mess - I guess I paid for this for nothing, now will have to uninstall it completely

    Suddenly had a problem the phone not detecting my headphones after using the headphones for years. Miraculously discovered this program that actually allows the settings to be changed. Yes, somehow "auto detect" of headphones turned itself off. Why? How? I may never know but many thanks to this programmer for creating a solution that resolved this issue.

    GS3 would default to audio jack instead of Bluetooth in the car. Installed this program and with zero setting changes it worked perfectly for resolving the issue.
