Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms.

Pause Your Music by Simply Flipping Your Device
Let’s say your music is blaring and you need to quickly turn it off because you need to attend to something more important. If your music is coming from your mobile device, silencing it would ordinarily mean either turning on the screen and pausing the music with your lockscreen music controls or fumbling with the volume buttons to silence it as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, neither of these options are quick enough when you’re in a hurry.l
XDA Senior Member Fredericosilva created a simple app that allows you to more efficiently silence your music with a simple gesture. Aptly titled Flip2Pause, the application… well… pauses your music when you flip your device. You don’t need to turn on your screen to pause the music; simply flip the device, and the music will pause in most media players.
The app’s functionality does not need root, but could conceivably use some extra battery power when active. That said, disabling the app is extremely easy. When active, Flip2Pause places an ongoing notification in your status bar. Clicking the notification turns off its functionality.

I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
