Adjust Your Media Playback with C Volume Rocker
If you’ve been following the XDA Portal recently, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the “C”-series apps. If you haven’t already seen some iteration already, now would be a good time to revisit the past and try some of XDA Senior Member stoncheah‘s creations.
A new addition to the C family is aimed at giving you media playback control while your device is locked. Using the app is simple. If you have a supported device, you simply install the app and enable it using the in-app toggle. Once enabled, pressing your volume keys while your phone is locked skips the track. What about if you actually wish to change the volume? That’s simple; you simply double tap the volume rocker.
So far, C Volume Rocker has been found to be compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and the Galaxy Note II. However, that’s not to say that more devices aren’t compatible. If, however, you find that your previously unsupported device does indeed work with the application, be sure to leave feedback in the thread so that others with the same device will know to give this a shot as well.
To get started, simply head over to the C-series apps thread and pick which of astoncheah’s creations you’d like to install.
