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.

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
