Player Compatibility List:
Any Music app that supports “Headset Controls” such as these:
PowerAmp Menu -> More -> Settings -> Headset -> Respond to Headset Buttons

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!
