Long press volume keys to skip tracks when screen off.

Recommended Posts

+1 Seems to be a interesting Idea, I've only one concern. I see myself starting the music with a way to loud Volume desperatly holding down the Volume key but instead I just skip Songs ^^

I don't know which thread it was, but Max said this would not be possible for Poweramp to do.

He said that one could however, manually do it on a rooted phone by changing what the side keys would pertain to i.e. next/previous track. But I'm assuming that would be the same no matter if one was using Poweramp, any other apps, or just the regular interface

This will do what you want:

I've got one and it works well for inline purposes.

Hmm, it only lists iOS devices, are you telling me it works with Android devices as well? I've already ordered a similar cheapo device that works on Nokia phones, I'm hoping it'll work on my Android as well.

I would also like for there to be an alternate fuction as well to short press for track skipping and long press for volume. Both features are currently in PlayerPro but the audio engine sucks.

Hey y'all, here's what I posted in Krazie's thread a few minutes ago about the solution to your issue (at least it's working for me, lol):

That function already exists, it can be enabled in Settings > Misc > Headset > Respond to Headset Buttons (check the box). Even though my headset doesn't have any buttons, that option does enable the Volume Rocker to skip the track forward or backward with a longpress of the Volume Up or Down rocker button when the screen is off.

That works great for me on my EVO 3D running Vin's Sense 3.5 rom (not Cyanogen Mod) and Chad Goodman's latest kernel. :)

I forgot to mention I'm running Poweramp version 2.0.5 build 477 (that might not matter, though).

I gave up on the volume rocker and earphones with controller (even the info you told me didn't work). Instead I'm going with this gadget that gives bluetooth remote control function along with a slew of other features in the form of a wrist watch reciever/sender:

3 buttons iPhone. touch, pod headphones are unlikely to work with Android.

You are right. Even though the volume keys don't work, the call/play/pause key does. I can usually feel through my pocket to increase the volume.

Just thought I'd +1 this too, as I was a little disappointed with not having this feature.

PlayerPro does have it and it works tremendously well. So what's the hold up with Poweramp?

I installed Poweramp Trial yesterday and found the app great, well worth my money, but the lack of the "long press to skip tracks" function was a serious deal breaker. Googled for a solution, found this thread and registered only to say that what you said did the trick! :D I'm using CM 7.2 RC3 on a ZTE Blade.

+1 for this feature for people that don't want to mess with custom roms!

This happens to me constantly, and why this feature might not be so practical for the mass user base.

+1 on this request.

It work by default on CM10, but I want to have it on my stock ROM also.

Please, could you think about including this feature to Poweramp?

Thanks!

If we can possibly fit this in, and include a toggle to turn it on or off, we certainly will add this feature to Poweramp's future builds.

THE DEVELOPERS ARE NOT LISTENING THIS IS A MUST HAVE FEATURE

We are very much listening just have quite a long list of to add features. This is behind things like Google Music (cloud music) support and design changes, but it's something Max says he's going to add.
