I have the jays5 headset and could not get the 3 button mode work with HTC m9. Whatever settings I do, it keeps doing what it wants. Upper and lower buttons just control volume, middle one skips track forward/backward. No double or triple click action or any other action possible with the buttons except the middle button only doing what I've just said.
Life brought to headset Coming from an iPhone, it bothered me that the Android headset that came with galaxy phones didn't have playback options besides play/pause.

JAYS Headset Control works *completely* on my Moto G after a number of other headset-control apps failed. A digression on the fun and frolic of attempting to use a headset on a moto G: 1 - you probably already know but the Moto G does not support 3-button headsets. On the other hand the Moto G does support the middle button on a three-button HTC headset. 2 - it is been my experience that the Moto G does not support Samsung single button headsets and, surprisingly, Motorola single button handsets. YMMV.
People, make sure your headphones are supported. If only one button is working for pause/play, then they're not compatible. Apple screwed everything up, by making a new proprietary pin-out. This is the cause of so much confusion and frustration.
The best I really like this app. I love the fact that it gives me control over my music player. I just wish that it could override the default google long press. And also, can't you make a notification bar icon? It awkward seeing that blank space up there.
Doesn't work on Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo Apart from starting & stopping playback nothing works (no volume control, no skip fwd or back, ...). Also Samsung's apps seem to interfere with it. When I stop a podcast (using Pocket Casts), Samsung's Music player starts...
