Turn Alarm Off with Headphone Control
My first post. I'm new to Android from ios. I have a Nexus 4 and Sony headphones with a single button (MDR-EX100AP).
I use an alarm when I sleep on the train and with iOS I could simply press the headphone remote (play/pause) button and the alarm would turn off. I want to know if if this is possible with Android. In the Android alarm clock settings I have set the volume button to "dismiss" the alarm. I have tired both "Headset Button Controller" and "JAYS Headset Control". At first I wanted to have a long click turn down the volume (and in effect turn off the alarm), but I'v e found that's not possibly in Android 4.3 as Google Now takes over when you do a long click. So I set the headphone control app so that a single click would turn down the volume, but this does not stop the alarm! The apps seem to be doing what the should - when I single click the headphone remote, I see the volume display on screen, and it lowers, but this doesn't stop the alarm. The alarm will stop if I press the physical vol up/down button on the Nexus 4 though.
Any suggestions to stop an alarm using the headphone controls?
