Player and FM radio control via wired headset button.
Headset Button is an application which extends functionality of wired headset button. Usually you can use wired headset button only for phone calls. With Headset Button you can switch tracks and FM channels, pause and resume playback, rewind and fast forward, change volume - and all this while your device peacefully rests in its case or in your pocket.
Headset Button works on devices of various manufacturers. Among them HTC, Glofiish and RoverPC. (See complete list of compatible devices at Headset Button website.)
Headset Button supports number of third-party players: TCPMP, Pocket Player, Pocket Music, Nitrogen... (See complete list of players at Headset Button website.)
Headset Button recognizes five different types of presses: single, double, triple, long (press & hold) and double long (the second press is long). Each press type can be assigned specific command. The last two (long and double long) are suitable for commands which last in time, such as Fast Forward or Rewind.
If phone call comes in, the wired headset button works as usual (as arranged by manufacturer). Headset Button does not interfere with phone operation.
Fully functioning trial version of Headset Button can be freely downloaded.
