Wave Control Pro v2.25

Wave Control Pro v2.25
Requirements: Android 2.2 and up
Overview: Control Your Music With a Wave of Your Hand!

Uses the proximity sensor on your phone to allow control of your music playback by waving your hand over your phone. No need to turn on your screen or even touch your phone at all!

Update the UI

Easy to use, just wave your hand over the sensor (usually located just next to the earpiece on your phone).

Holding it there will Pause/Resume

One wave across will go to the Next Song

Two waves across will go to the Previous Song

Three times (needs to be fast) will Pause or Resume the controls

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

Some Notes:

There is a little less than 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 1 second delay before another gesture will be registered

Will work with any player that accepts headset (media button) controls

If the screen is off or another app is in focus, phone vibrates once on pause control and twice on resume controls

Practice your wave techniques by checking the "Last Action"

If you're getting another player responding to the commands, check if that app has the option to disable headset button controls


I have read that the sensor will behave differently on different phones. I don't have the resources to have a bunch of phones around to test on. If there is a problem with the app, please email me at 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.

Permissions Needed:

Wake Lock: So it will work when the screen is off

Read Phone State: So it won't do anything when you're on a call

Vibrate To use when screen if off or app not in focus

What's in this version:

V2.25: New: Profiles - Save up to 4 sets of settings and commands (Pro or Assignable Actions Needed)

Renamed Pocket Mode to Screen On Only Mode
