Locale/Tasker Headphone Button is a free software application from the System Maintenance subcategory, part of the System Utilities category.
The app is currently available in English and it was last updated on 2013-05-03. The program can be installed on Android.
A Locale plugin that simulates pressing a headphone or headset button. Available buttons are the "hook" ie single headset button, Play/Pause, Play, Pause, Next, Previous, Fast Forward, Rewind, Stop. Also optionally checks whether anything is currently playing.
This is useful because headphone buttons automatically use the current "preferred" media player on your device, which is usually the most recently used one, instead of any one specific player.
I use this to restart whatever was playing last when I plug in my headphones. It's nice that Android automatically pauses when they're unplugged, but it's annoying to have to unlock the screen, navigate through the player app, and press play again. Add a Locale situation with headphones connected as the condition and this plugin with "Play/Pause" as the setting, and voila, your music or podcast automatically restarts when you plug your headphones back in!
Warning: some media player apps don't handle headphone buttons consistently, or even at all, even built-in apps. If this plugin doesn't work with a specific app, check that it supports the headphone button you've selected, and/or try other buttons.
