I'm proud to announce the release of my app called "Umi Iron Audio fix".

This app fix the clicking/popping sound in headset/headphone happens when an audio starts/stops.
The APK is about 1,4 MB. It uses only about 4 MB of RAM and almost no battery.

Know limitations:
- You can see a slight increase in battery consumption when the headset/headphone is plugged in, but you aren't listening to anything. You will notice it only if you do this for hours in a day.
- When the headset/headphone is plugged in, the system thinks you are listening to music, so the default volume button behavior will be media volume instead of notification volume.

You can download it here: https://goo.gl/1VAIIx (If you share the app, please use this shortened link.)

Icon designed by Ohmygosh.

I hope you will enjoy the app.

App updated to 2.0.
It has been rewritten from the ground.

Now uses the Android Preference API.
It gives you many new options like
- Keep audio alive on the loudspeaker
- Hide launcher icon
- Changeable keep alive audio stream channels
You can now open the app by dialing *UMIAUDIO instead of using the launcher icon.
Donate menu removed. (Nobody use it)

Hi Rhen

I can make an icon... I simply need to know the format size, the resolution and file type (png ? )

Icon guidelines: [link]
Base material icons: [link]
Gimp material icon template: [link]

The biggest problem is that I don't know what to put on the icon.

Congratulations, rhen! I can't try it but according to the reports of other users, you've done a great job to solve a long time annoying and unsolvable issue.
Just some questions:
1. Has anybody measured that, how much battery power is drained by this app?
2. Is it possible to create a such version without UI, that can automatically run in the background as a service (from the system/app or priv-app folder) when a pair of headphones is connected?

Hi bencebacsi!

To answer your questions:
1. battery consumption should be minimal. You won't notice any.
You can only see more battery consumption when you connect a headset but doesn't play anything on it.
Without the service, the OS turns off the sound system when there is no sound playing, but this service keeps it on.

I can post a battery stat for a day of usage in the evening if you want.

2. The app do the work in a background service which is start automatically on boot.
At first, I tried to start the service when the headphone plugged in, but I haven't found it reliable so decided to start a little service and that service listens for the headphone connection. It consumes only 4MB of RAM and doesn't affect battery since it doesn't do anything but waiting for headset connection when the headset doesn't connected.

The service is independent from the GUI. You don't have to start the GUI even once.
The GUI is just to give you the ability to turn the service off if you want and give some information.
I can make a version without a GUI if you want, but it will work the same. The only difference will be that there won't be launcher icon and the ability to turn it off.

You can copy it into system/app or priv-app folder if you want but it won't make any difference.

It works like a charm. Thank you so much, Rhen!

Honestly, I had given up using Duolingo, music players and many other apps because of the audio issue, but now I will enjoy them like they are meant to. Thanks again!
