    Fixes an issue with the Mele F10 pro controller when used on a non Mele branded box where the controllers usb sound device keeps taking over. Soundabout service keeps it on the hdmi speaker even after reboot.

    Essential application, but functionality would go over the charts, with a tasker plugin.

    Though I would like the app to have an option to disable notification sounds from playing on the speaker while headphones are plugged in. And there is no reason for this app to be so intrusive.

    Had audio issues with my phone and needed to test things. This proved the phone was ok, it turned out to be another app causing problems.
