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

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 ;-)
