Wave Control



    Wave Control's review

    Published: 2015-03-30, by .

    Control your music and calls with gestures using your phones sensor.

    • Good 'how to use' explanation
    • Good set of options
    • Too finicky

    "Control Your Music With Gestures"


    Wave Control is about as good as gesture control apps get. It has a good explanation on how to use it, and lots of set up options. However like all gesture control apps, it just doesn't work all that well - the little light sensor on your phone requires you to get your hand far to close to register waves properly.


    As gesture control apps go, this one is good, It has a great explanation on how to use it, and plenty of set up and customization options.


    Because of the way the app works, using your phones light sensor, it just doesn't work very well. It's far to finicky, to the point where it would be much faster to just unlock your phone and hit play.

    Control your music and video playback and calls with waves of your hand over your phone. No touching required. Control music with the screen off too.

    Works with your favorite music/streaming and video apps.

    Easy to use, just wave your hand over the sensor (usually located just next to the earpiece).
    Holding it there (hover) - Pause/Resume
    One wave across - Next Song
    Two waves across - Previous Song
    Three times - Enable/Disable the controls

    Be sure to enable Headset Button Control in your player of choice

    Player Compatibility List:
    Any Music app that supports "Headset Controls" includes all the most popular apps.

    Some Notes:
    Tip for the hover gesture: if you move your hand away too quickly it'll register a wave
    After an action, there is a delay before another gesture will be registered
    Practice your wave techniques in the "Last Action" section
    If you're getting another player responding to the commands, use the Set Target Media App setting

    The sensor WILL behave differently on different phones. I don't have the resources test on every phone. If there is a problem, please email me to give me a chance to fix it out before leaving a bad review!
