Next Track lets you skip songs, mute or stop music using your volume buttons. Next Track works with all standard music players to control music with the screen off. Remap your volume keys while listening to music. Choose single, double and long press actions.
Ignore the reviews and rating, it's just people complaining that the full version costs money. I can't offer this app completely free. There are no ads and I don't collect and sell your personal info, so it has to have a very small price to cover development costs.
This free download lets you try it on your phone to make sure it works. With the free version, a single press of the volume down key will skip to the next track. A double press of the volume down key will lower the volume. The volume up key is not modified. If this is all you need, you're all set! No complicated setup is required.
