    I had my phone in my pocket and it was raining. Some water got into the audiojack and I cannot listen any music. But with this app you can overwrite the rule that your phone thinks you have earphones connected. Just change media audio to speaker

    My phone flaked out with audio outputs and I could NOT fix it. Even after a complete reset, it would still ignore earphones plugged into it, disconnect from Bluetooth as soon as a call started, and insist on playing music from the built-in speaker. I fixed it easily with SoundAbout. Thanks. Well work the $3 for me since the alternative was a new phone.
