    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.

    I have a HTC m8 which stopped working with my urbanear headphones after the android 4.4.3 kitKat update. The same thing happened to my M7 after the 4.4.2 update. So instead of waiting months for this bug to be fixed I decided it was way cheaper to spend a couple of quid on this app which does the job very fluidly rather than spending loads of money on new headphones. Not the most beautiful app but

    It's too bad this isn't just a free app considering I'll only be using until I purchase another device (stuck in headphone mode) but it does what I need for the time being and saves me from having to buy another phone immediately so I can't complain
