Problems with SoundAbout widget/app v2.5.7.8 (wired headphones, volume settings, etc)

Post by Guest on Mon Jan 20, 2014 7:53 am

Hello!

First of all, sorry for my bad english. I have two questions/problems with SoundAbout version 2.5.7.8 Smile

I'm very interested in the app because i have a problem with 3.5 mm jack of my Xiaomi Mi2S (with MIUI V5 based on Android Jelly Bean 4.1). It does not recognize the earphones.

SoundAbout have advanced settings but I need a simple toggle/widget to force the sound to the earphones and then return it to the speakers.

Essentially, like this widget (I used it for a couple of weeks):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dwalkes.android.toggleheadset2

Unfortunately, toggleheadset2 has a big problem (JB 4.1, with microphone...):
https://code.google.com/p/toggleheadset2/issues/detail?id=14

PROBLEM 1: WIDGET
With the SoundAbout widget i can force the sound to the earphones with a single click (ON) but i can't get it back to speakers (OFF). When I set the widget to OFF, all apps (music, Youtube, etc) are muted until I close SoundAbout from task manager (or until i open and immediately close SoundAbout). When I close it, the sound comes back immediately. If I haven't Soundabout opened in task manager, I open it and immediately close it and the sound comes back immediately.

PROBLEM 2: SETTING UP THE VOLUME
When sound is forced through headphones (widget ON), it is impossible to set the volume (using the buttons on my smartphone). With toggleheadset2 I can set the volume using the buttons of my smartphone, but it does not seem possible with Soundabout. Is it a known bug?

If there was the ability to handle everything from the widget with two clicks (ON / OFF) and with the volume settings I would be very grateful and definitely would buy the application.

Thank you very much, hope to hear you soon.
Bye bye!

Those issues should be fixed in the latest release.
Can you try the widget and volume issue with the latest version of SoundAbout?
It was just release, so if you don't see the update in Google Play, you can download it from here:

Let me know if it works better for you.

There is a bug with unplugging headphones with music playing.

I tried to put in code where, if the music player was playing with the headphones plugged in, then you unplug, the music would continue playing. normally the music pauses.

Beware....It seems to be playing the music even if it was paused before unplugged the wired headphones.
