Simple but useful, great added features
Headset Menu for Android is the most innovative and small app you never knew you needed. You know when you plug your headphones in and Android gives you a list of apps that might use your headphones? Well, Headset Menu gives you the power to create your own little tab with your own apps. I put SoundCloud and Google Play Music on mine. You can even make it a permanent tab if you would like to have it available without having to plug in headphones.
One of the coolest features in the settings of Headset Menu is the ability for an app to just start when you plug your headphones in. I was a little bit skeptical, but then I picked SoundCloud to start and when I plugged my headphones in it started right up. WABAM! The icons are right next to each other, and are very easy to access from the notifications panel.
There's also the cool ability to wake your phone upon headphones plugin (say you are in the car and can't really fiddle when your phone. This makes it so you don't have to un-sleep your phone - a small feature but convenient none the less), set volume(you can set a predetermined volume to listen to), and adjust the settings of app like it’s icons and when it’s available (with or without headphones plugged in).
It’s easy to pick the apps from your list of your apps, but if you have a lot of apps like me, it might take you awhile to find the apps and select them. Luckily, this is the hardest part of the app and once selected you are good to go!
