I have Samsung Galaxy Ace.

I listen to music using headphones. If I press button on headphones, it pauses/plays music. It is really annoying that I need to take phone out of my pocket, unlock the screen, and skip a song.

Is there a way to press a button on headphone, have it skip the current song and move to the next song like on Nokia phones? Is there any music player supporting this?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried double press? While attempting try with different time gap between each press. – Narayanan Jan 4 '13 at 11:51

There are plenty of solutions available on the Google Playstore -- just search it for "headset control. Having a Philips headset, I use their Philips Headset and am really satisfied with it: One tap = pause/play, two-tap = forward 1 track, 3 tap = backward 1 track. Long-Tap (hold it) = volume up, tap and then long-tap = volume down... Most of these apps follow that scheme, many also allow to customize it. JAYS Headset Control should be a good option as well, but didn't work to well with my Philips headset; so if one doesn't do as expected, don't give up but try another.

Double tapping on the button with two little dots works for me
