    Default Are there any remotes for Android phones?

    I use my phone to play music at work, and rather than fumble through my pockets to try to get the music app open to pause a song, I'd rather just reach in my pocket for a remote to quickly press a button. I can't use headphones at work, so I'm not looking for any headsets, rather a remote.

    I bought this:

    Bluetooth Media Music Remote Control Wireless Camera Shutter for iOS Android | eBay

    But I got jipped, as it doesn't work for it

    Anybody know of any?

    You can use the app Tactile Player to program the power button to pause and play if you double or triple press it (whichever you choose). For Samsung phones you choose the Simulate Headset option in the app. It works with or without the screen locked. There is a free version and the above feature works on my Note 3.

    I've thought it would be nice to a Bluetooth remote control to control things such as volume, music, and what not while phone is in cradle in car. I don't want to wear a smart watch for this function. A remote like Applele tv would do the trick

    You can buy a galaxy gear to do that!

    When you're driving, voice control is a much better solution than a remote. You really don't want to be handling a remote any more than you would a phone in that circumstance.

    I drive a truck, voice command is hit and miss, and creates more a distraction watching to see if it worked. All I need is volume up/down, skip song or go back. Nothing fancy.
