Control your Android phone without touching it by using Wave Control

Control Your Music With a Wave of Your Hand!

Uses the proximity sensor on your phone to allow control of your music playback and calls by waving your hand over your phone.

This Pro version gives all current and future features at no additional cost. Free version has purchasable upgrades to pick and choose features as they become available. Pro version's price periodically increases as features are added.

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 ringer quickly? Just wave!
Actions for Pro: Stop, Alt Play/Pause (for MX Video Player), Volume Up/Down, Launch Google Voice Search, Screen Toggle On/Off, None to disable a gesture

Great for:
At your desk - Don't waste time unlocking your phone
Driving - Don't take your eyes off the road to change songs
Cooking - Control your music with your hands covered in dough
Cleaning - Don't worry about getting dirt and grime all over your screen
Eating - Don't worry about smearing all that burger juice on your phone
Working Out- Don't fall off the treadmill trying to unlock your phone

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

One wave across - Next Song
Two waves across - Previous Song
Three times - Enable/Disable the controls


  • 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
