  • When we think about the near future we see ourselves controlling our gadgets through gestures and voice. Smartphone manufacturers like Samsung have already began implementing gesture based features into their devices. Developers are also working hard to enable control without touching the device.


    Wave Control as the name suggests lets you control the device without having to touch it. While you are busy driving or working at your desk while listening to music, you don’t have to stop what you’re doing to change songs, or even touch the screen. The app uses the proximity sensor on your phone in a way that you can control most music apps or calls by waving your hand. For calls you only need to wave once to silence the ringer, or twice to answer/end the call. For music, wave across once to skip to the next song, twice for previous and hover for pause. The app interface is composed of tabs that you browse through using swipe gestures. The settings tab let you enable or disable the different functions, like the gestures for calls or music. Here you can also select the media player app to control. Wave Controlsupports many music players, like PowerAmp, Google Music or Uber Music. Basically any music app that supports “Headset Controls” is compatible. The main tab displays info about the last action and useful instructions for the app. An info tab will let you test the proximity sensor and displays useful info about the app itself and developer.


    The Free version of Wave Control offers the ability to buy different improvements, like removing ads, through the upgrades tab. The Pro version contains all features.
