    Wave Control- Hands free music/device control

    I came accross this app while looking for an app to use volume buttons to fastforward/rewind music. It use the proximity sensor in your phone to detect hand gestures to control music. I love it and had to share.

    Wave Control uses the proximity sensor to detect hand gestures to control music/movie playback (free version) and more (paid version).

    I developed this originally on the Note and luckily it happened to have one of the best proximity sensors (at least for my uses). Now I've moved on to the SGSIII and it works just as well! Works best on the SGSIII, Note and Galaxy Nexus. Not so great on HTC phones and SGSII due to their particular sensors (much slower).

    Performance will vary depending on which sensor your phone uses. All HTC phones use the same slow one. Samsung uses about 3 different vendors and more models.. most are good, Sony is usually ok, Motorola is a mixed bag. I try to account for some of the differences in the sensors. But be aware you may have to wave at a different speed than in the youtube videos.

    There are 4 basic gestures:
    -Hover
    -1 Wave
    -2 Waves
    -3 Waves

    By default they correspond to Play/Pause, Next, Previous, Enable/Disable Controls respectively.

    In the Pro version or upgraded free version, they can be remapped to any of those plus: Screen Toggle On/Off, Volume Up, Volume Down, Launch Google Voice Search, Fast Forward, Rewind, and do nothing.

    Popular uses are:
    When driving, don't have to take your eyes off the road to try to hit a button
    When your hands are dirty so you don't smear crap all over your phone like when cooking or working on car
    While on the computer, you don't have to bother waking the phone to change the song (works even when the screen is off)
