Headset Menu Makes Your Smartphone Smarter and Revolutionizes Your Android Music Experience

As their name suggests, smartphones should be smart. And usually, they are–but in certain situations, they could be smarter. Their functionality can be enhanced with tools like Tasker. This app allows users to define scenarios, which are executed when certain required criteria are met. Unfortunately, Tasker is somewhat difficult for newcomers to use, and it requires some knowledge and experience to be configured properly. Because of this, it’s a no-go for some of the less tech savvy users.

Picture yourself plugging in your headset and suddenly a defined set of apps appears right in your notification area. Thanks to XDA Forum Member rickythefox, it’s entirely possible. Headset Menu creates a menu or widget with applications selected by you. With this app, you can add your favorite music player, streaming application, and YouTube and run the desired application in just few simple steps. It’s very useful feature, since most of us connect headphones often, and looking for an app often takes too much of our precious time. Headset Menu saves you few seconds, and allows you to change your sound source really easily.

The application doesn’t require anything special except Android 4.0 or newer, which the vast majority of us already have. It works on every device, and it doesn’t even require root access. You can find the application by visiting the Headset Menu app thread. The application is in its development stage, so don’t forget to leave your feedback in the thread.
