Easy access to your music apps!
This app creates a menu in your notification area when you connect earphones or a Bluetooth headset to your device.

* Choose which apps to put on the menu and sort them as you like
* Turn on the screen when a headset is connected
* Auto-start an app when a headset is connected
* Change music volume when a headset is connected
* Icon alignment (left, right, space evenly) in notification
* Can create a widget that is made visible when a headset is connected
* Icon pack support
* Bluetooth device blacklist

Trying it out now
Looks awesome, trying it out now. I don't like the one included in TouchWiz, looking to use this to replace it.

Thumbs up Works great, Disabled stock from touchwiz
So I used ROM Toolbox Pro to freeze the PageBuddyNotiSvc.apk to disable the stock recommended apps tray from TouchWiz, it would never update that app list since I don't use TouchWiz as my launcher.

Another great addition to my heavily modded T-Mobile Note 3 on Stock rooted rom with a bunch of xposed mods enabled.

Would be awesome if this could support icon packs, or at least set icons manually. Also, it doesn't align vertically for my in the notification. I'm using PA with Nue theme.

I love this app but there are two things I would really like to see.

1. Invisible status bar icon
2. Customize which bluetooth devices are blacklisted (shows with headphones but not in car)
