Easy Gesture-based control I've used Music Boss for Pebble, which worked fantastic. I only got rid of the Pebble because it's a crappy watch. But with my MB experience, I decided to buy the Android Wear version when I got my Asus ZenWatch 2. I love the gesture-based control, making it easier to control my Podcast Addict app. I've only just had this app for a few minutes, so I'm withholding the final star for a bit, since there's some delay between fast forward and rewind. I'll adjust the review later as appropriate.
Really great integrated I personally use this app to launch the music player that my Note 4 comes with (for my Moto 360), this because this default music player fits in with the controls that are added on my S-View cover. The only downside is I have to use the voice commands: “Ok Google“, “Start music boss“. Yet it would be cooler if it could take over the "Play music" command and go right away. Still 5/5 as it does as expected and integrates really well with my default music player, rather than Google music.
Simplifies Wear music control PERFECTLY. Awesome for driving since I no longer have to take my eyes off the road to navigate my smartwatch to change a song. I couldn't have made it any better myself (which I was contemplating lol). My only criticisms are only with UI navigation. Suggestion 1 - Add a floating action button to the bottom right for adding apps to control. Suggestion 2 - Use checkboxes to allow multiple apps to be selected.
Closes When Screen Off on Smartwatch 3 I had to buy this twice, after it stopped working and I decided to uninstall: Google Play could no longer find my version in the Play Store, and I had to repurchase. This new version will close when my screen goes into ambient mode, and no amount of settings changes seems to fix the issue.
App is kind of useless. When it works it works but when it doesn't then it just doesn't. And doesn't work most of the time for me. It shuts off by itself and just disappears from my screen. Really bad battery drain. Would have been better off with one of the free apps.
Worked once now crashes each launch The app worked great on day 1, but the next day crashes my watch on launch every time. Uninstalling until resolved. ***Update after reinstalling app no longer crashes, but it seems it is very hard to stop on my watch. Even after I quit the app or restart my watch there is always a card for MB top of the queue ready to accidentally start a song. If I'm not careful my phone will start blaring music while I'm checking other cards or just by gestures on the watch.
