Wave ControlWave Control : Control Your Phone With a Wave of Your Hand

Uses the proximity sensor to allow control of your music playback and calls by waving your hand over your phone.
Better than lockscreen controls since there’s no need to turn on your screen or even touch your phone at all!
-Want the next song? Just wave!
-Need to silence your ringtone quickly? Just wave!

Some Notes:
There is about a second to register your waves.
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
Works with any player that accepts headset (media button) controls
If the screen is off or another app is in focus, phone vibrates 1x on pause control and 2x on resume controls
Practice your wave techniques in the “Last Action” section
If you’re getting another player responding to the commands, check if that app has the option to disable headset button controls

The sensor will behave differently on different phones. I don’t have the resources to have a many phones around to test on. If there is a problem with the app, please email me at marksthinktank@gmail.com and give me a chance to figure it out before leaving a bad review!
And… there is a chance this app may not be compatible with your phone.. sorry. I’ll do my best to keep the compatibility list up to date so future users won’t run into issues.

Wave Control user reviews:

Great app, great dev continues to improve

Works as described, thanks.

I love this app. I listen to loads of podcasts while working and often need to quickly pause them when people talk to me. This app saves me having to fiddle about with my phone to pause/unpause all the time. I can even have it in my pocket and have it pause playback simply by removing it from my pocket. Works great with Doggcatcher on my Nexus S.

The app works as described. But I noticed a faint ticking sound when the app was running. It is noticeable when no music is running. It went away when I exited the app. It kept coming back when the app was running.

Please make the app Move to SD,i love the app but I’m low on internal memory.

How the hell didn anyone get this idea. Bro u outclass every other app. Heck of a billion kisses. Runs like breeze on my p500 n ATRIX 2. :-))) will download the pro for sure.

I use this app daily while doing dishes and playing games. Love how it works with the stock music player and Google music! Keep up the awesome work.

Very responsive developer, and I reported some bugs five days ago and three updates have been released since then, the if you are to support such a good developer I recommend you to get the pro version, after all they eat too 😉
