Easy to use, just wave your hand over the sensor (usually located just next to the earpiece).
Holding it there (hover) - Pause/Resume
One wave across - Next Song
Two waves across - Previous Song
Three times - Enable/Disable the controls

Many Thanks to the following translators!!

Be sure to enable Headset Button Control in your player of choice

Player Compatibility List:
Any Music app that supports "Headset Controls" includes all the most popular apps.

Some Notes:
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

*IMPORTANT*
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!
