Music Boss in the Media:

More details:
If you use your Pebble Smart Watch to control one or multiple Music/Audio Apps on your Android Device and if you find that your Pebble should give you more control over your music...You've found the app you are looking for!

If you change the Music/Audio App that responds to the Pebble Media buttons, you know that this process requires a few steps each time you wish to change the app.

Music Boss gives you total control over your Music/Audio App (Retune, Audible, Google Play Music, PowerAmp, etc) using the Pebble's existing Music Watch App or the Music Boss Watch App. Music Boss allows you to create a list of your favourite music apps and quickly change which one responds to the media commands on the Pebble Watch.

Best of all, you can change your current Music app right from your Pebble!

Quickly launch your current music app from your Pebble watch. No need to reach into your pocket to launch Retune, Spotify, Rdio, Google Play Music, Audible or others.

If you are ready to take total control of your Music and Audio Apps with your Pebble, give Music Boss a try!

Install the App, choose one of two App Tutorials and start controlling your music like a Music Boss.

If Music Boss is not working for your Music App, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. I will test the Music app in question, and provide feedback on whether the issue is with Music Boss or the music app itself.

Lonely Squad

Great Update! Latest update resolved my issues and I love the new feature to hide the control bar! My only problem now, I think is completely Pocket Casts issue with the app not staying in memory.

Allan Zeiba

Best app for Pebble This is my most use app for Pebble, with this I can control the music while riding my bike without even look at the watch, works great and does his job perfectly

Anthony Davis

Awesome Love to skip songs while I'm running,almost impossible to do that with my phone on my arm

Nathan Gaul

Most Useful App This app is my most used app on my Pebble and it would be hard to go without it. Love not having to unlock my phone, navigating to Google Music, pressing a button and relocking just to skip a song!

Brian Benson

The best app I use this constantly to control sirius and podcast addict easy to pause and resume audio apps right from my wrist with minimal effort

Nicholas Couffin

Great Good app, but the one thing that bugs me is that to me the fast forward and reverse buttons should be swapped or at least have the option of swapping. I keep going to my previous songs. (There is now an expansion adding this so 5 stars)

Ryan Moore

Great idea, buggy execution ***UPDATED*** Edit: Fixed in the current version, works great! When playing music on my phone through the basic Google Play music app, the song shown on the watch display is very rarely in sync with what is actually playing. It seems to only synchronize sporadically, and will often tell me that "no music is playing" when I'm three or four songs into an album. I've tried adjusting the settings, but nothing seems to help.

Dominic van Berkel

Slightly fiddly, but worth it It makes Pebble music control actually useful for me, since stock doesn't play very nice with the combination of Podkicker and Walkman. Slightly fiddly to set up entirely right, but I see why and it's totally worth it.

Bryan Nguyen

A must-have music app for Pebble Best 2$ I have ever spent. Developer is pretty friendly and very responsive as well. He always reach out to the users and to the fellow developers to help make the Pebble platform better for everyone.

Dennis Ricardo Cavalcante

Must have this app Awesome app... This is what I'm looking for.. Now I can change my volume and see the song's name on my watch using Spyotify.. Thank you.. It worth to pay

Jake Munson

Bait 'n switch Purchased app a year ago, features that were included in my original purchase are now part of an expansion pack that costs extra! Poor form!

Mathieu Saindon

Buggy The music controls work, but the app rarely displays the correct track information. I've contacted the developper and he was unable to fix the problem.

John Mark Sandoval

USB audio player pro I am having issue with USB Audio Player Pro. The song title does not update and volume control does not function.

Adam Carrigan

Awesome sauce The only music control app you need. The other ones I've tried are glitchy and don't work.

Julian Crisp

Good, but... Okay so I brought this app hoping that it would work with aWARemote Pro (The best Winamp remote for Android) ... It didn't. Can you PLEASE fix this? I don't listen to music on my phone, I use a HTPC with Winamp. It would make life a whole lot easier if I could control my media on the PC from my wrist rather than searching the whole house to find the mouse and keyboard. Otherwise, good app.

Jack Givens

Only useful as a source selector Perhaps I miss something in the capabilities of this app but I do not see the benefit over the built in controller. I guess you can switch between music sources but if you primarily use one source it is a waste of money. My biggest complaint is I CAN NOT SELECT PLAYLISTS from the pebble application like you can with the Pandora application (A perfect user experience with the Pandora Pebble app). In the end you get the basics, volume, pause/play, change track. Just like the stock music controller.

Stoned Night

Nice One suggestion...once you've paused the playback how about a really long press n hold on middle button of watch to close app on phone

Hilton Tiam-Lee

Excellent! Everything you would need to control your media on your phone.

Grant Fowler

Love it. One suggestion I use musixmatch as my primary player and all my songs say unknown song unknown album etc. Fixing that would be great, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE live lyrics on this. If musixmatch has a live lyric system (and they do) then you can stream those to pebble! Just an idea?

Joshua L. suwaratana

Works nicely enough I wish the back button wasn't deliberately slowed down (it's made that way so you can double-press the back button to access settings). Sometimes I want to exit the app quickly. Also, I wish I could switch playlists with this, but I have another app for that.' Finally, I really like that I can start Spotify from my watch even if the app isn't opened on my phone. I use it to find my phone sometimes. :P

Blake Bishop

Consumes 110mb of RAM I like it, especially because the standard music app doesn't agree with my music player of choice. But for near 2 dollars (not including the customization pack) I would think it would be better optimized than this. It's eating an absurd amount of RAM. I wouldn't mind 50mb, but 100 is a little excessive. Especially for a paid app. Make it free, or reduce the RAM requirements. I'm going back to stock.

Kevin Kennedy

Works perfectly The functionality of music boss does just what I need, I love the ability to thumbs up music right from my pebble.

Andrew Kent

Great Better than stock. Add a mute option of possible? The developers are very helpful and responded inhumanly quickly. Could not ask for better communication with them. Rare to find, so props to them.

Ian Richardson

Must have for your Pebble Have been using this app for a while now and it's an absolute must if you love listening to music from your phone. Also great support from the developer so you can't lose!

David Liddell

Amazing app This is an essential app for pebble users with chromecast works with netflix, play moves and more. Bluetooth music in the car. Just awesome, worth way more than you will pay.

Laura Meier

Works great Was looking for a safer way to pause and skip tracks when driving using voice commands, then realized my Pebble could fix this. The advantage over the Pebble music app to automatically switch between all the audio apps I use made this a great investment.

John Hawkins

Great Job Fantastic app - takes some getting used to, but once configured it's proven an amazing addition to my OnePlus/Pebble setup.

Bill Smith

Works like a champ with Amazon Music And is friendly with other apps. I use this a ton. Never a surprise.

Christopher Rourke

Doesn't work with Netflix. Doesn't really add much functionality. Extremely glitchy.

John Arhin

Great music app 5 star app that is a must have for any Pebble owner.

Robert Phipps

Absolutely fab I use this almost entirely for Spotify, and it works perfectly. The ability to launch Spotify from the watch is really neat, as is your integration with Tasker - watch app opens when I open Spotify. One query and one suggestion now. The first is what are the 'gesture controls' that I can toggle on and off? I can't find any info on them. Also, would it be possible to have a 'save' button for Spotify? There is a quick action in the Spotify notification, so could you hook into that? Then it would be perfect!

Hailu Shibru

I like it but the battery life is not as promised and the software needs more attention

Tanel V

Very pleased. Makes controlling music while running so much easier. Big thanks to developers.

Allen Magnone

Excellent app. One of the best I've found for pebble.

Ed Fernandez

Dude, seriously?! How are you guys only charging $2? This app is AMAZING! Audible? CHECK, Pandora? CHECK. Google Music? CHECK. EASILY switch between them all? CHECK. Love it

Jeremy Coleman

Don't leave home without it!

Owen D'Aprile

Works Great. It does exactly what is advertised. I have no complaints I recommend this app to anyone looking to supercharge their pebble experience.

Николай Аладин

Great! Shifted to smartphone with KK. Now everything works as described and expected.

Сергій Горук

Give Russian translation please

Артём Кононенко

Good Force close after tap on 'Watchface settings'. Android 4.4.4, stock Sony ROM.

Greg Gregox

Clock please add a clock on the main screen app

Nelson Bude

Not perfect. When it works it's pretty cool but sometimes you go to resume audio and it randomly selects which app to play. The Pebble is also not the best UI so even when it works well you have to do a lot of pressing and menu navigation to make things happen.

Dennis Gruetter

Spotify is solid Not sure what kind of magic voodoo you did to get Spotify working so well. Especially since the Pebble app is not displaying tracks anymore (perhaps newest Pebble update broke it.) Your app takes a well deserved slot in my 8 app og Pebble.

Nate Gillette

Great App It allows for way more control than the built in app.

Yuri Gupta

No album art/color Album art not working on pebble time, android m preview. No reply from email to developer

Peter Cooper

Great addition to the pebble

David Lander

Good App I like this app but I get some strange behaviour between Play Music and Play Movies & TV - It keeps reverting to Music even though I have it set it to control Movies.

jordan Thompson

This app really does deserve its rating.

Daniel Braithwaite

Excellent, but... Please add the ability to disconnect Chromecast volume control via Tasker. The automatic connect/disconnect when changing the selected app is quite unreliable, sometimes leaving me controlling the volume on the wrong device, so the ability to do it manually is quite necessary. Also, why are there only 3 gestures available instead of 6? Very limiting. Also doesn't work with Netflix.

Darrien Glasser

So close to perfect Absolutely superb in all ways, except for that if you multi-press the back button while in the watch app, you always get preferences, and there's no way to disable that, even with the paid extra options.

Jake Munson

Works great once you figure it out It's not very intuitive to get it working with my pebble and music apps on my phone. But after it's all configured correctly, it works great!

Dennis Wu

Works perfect! Works with my Spotify app just fine. If song album or info isn't updating, make sure you enable Device Broadcast Status in the Spotify settings. Also, don't forget to reboot device and Pebble after updates.

Marc Wilson

Must Have I've been using Music Boss for a long time and absolutely love it. I recently had a problem and emailed the developer who responded within minutes. Knowing that Music Boss is available on Android Wear watches gives me the assurance that buying one will be a worthwhile purchase.

Marc DePaul

Fantastic app and developer! The developer is prompt in responding to questions and very helpful. He has great communication with his users. I will be checking out his other apps to support him. The app itself does wonders for your music listening experience. It is my most used pebble app by far! Thanks for making a great app!

George Andres

I love this app, which I use on my Pebble Time. The only thing is that the artwork isn't being displayed from google play music. Is this function fully implemented yet?

Ian Jackson

So nice I got it twice. I love music boss. I have it on Android Wear and now my Pebble time and am excited to try it out extensively. Works well from what I see so far.

Ian Pitts

Excellent. I now use it daily at the gym.

Austin Nooe

Some errors.... Been using the app with my new Pebble time and the issue I'm having is the app is not always updating and is getting confused with Google music and spotify. Basically, I'll have Spotify playing and music boss will have the correct info but the track name is whatever I last played in Google music. I don't have Google music opened though.

Jon Marrs

Awesome Love the app but i just got a new lg g4 and it won't display the song info when using it with the stock music app that came on the phone. It just gets stuck on the first one and never changes. Even when i exit out and back in, it's still stuck displaying a song i listened to 2 days ago. It worked great with my old phone.

Vincent Barnhill

Music access at any time Use this app when riding my bike. Can leave hands on bars and adjust column and change song. Great app.

Adam Hobbs

Awesome Double tap of back button on your pebble will open choice of music app. Holding the select / play button will launch the selected app. Variety of options can be overwhelming at first, but you are left wanting for nothing. Can't recommend this app enough.


It is great It works so much better than the original. However it would not shut up about notification access, even if it has one. UPDATE: Turns out reboot solves it. Thanks to responsive developer!

Bryan Sands

Great Really like the app, especially with the new color screen on the Time! Album art display seems to be a little buggy, won't update between album switches. Besides that, great work!

Mike DeBoer

The album art on color pebble time is awesome. Great customer support from the developer too. Worked great on the original pebble too.

Rudolf Brosztl

. Still an awesome app ! :)

John Koollj

Very good Some lag on commands

Richādo M

Good It's good but it doesn't work with YouTube

Vivian Raiborde

Often fails The thing only works once in a while. Doesn't work anymore with Tunein Radio. Keeps asking for notification access to be granted even though it has access... Have never been able to launch a media app from Pebble on my Nexus 6

Hel Kim

your best media manager! this app is great! the basic version is loaded with features and customizable settings. it has everything i wish the Pebble Music app had and more! i actually tried this app out last year but i didn't love it. so, i returned it and used the basic music app in the pebble menu. after hearing about the recent update, i purchased it again and it is very very good. it there is an optional in-app purchase for features that go above and beyond. i don't get the complaints about this. i appreciate having the choice to upgrade rather than paying for a higher priced app that has a ton of features i don't need at the moment. finally, a second set of 5-stars to the developer. his quick and detailed responses to questions (and suggestions) further solidified my support for this project.

Devin Shafer

Might be my firmware.. 4.2.2 Rocking my lenovo s6000 tablet. Was able to use my pebble once.. Now doesn't want to control Hulu. Won't ask for refund. Would like to see some help.

Daeshawn Pierce

Help My pebble will not show the name of the song or anything threw music boss

Nii Noi Nortey

Missing one feature for Pebble classic. Great app. I bought this hoping it was going to show album art but sadly it doesn't for the pebble classic. Anyway you could include that feature?

Joe Gannicliffe

Flexible Much better than stock music controls on pebble. New update is great providing real time track duration info.

Matthew Orme

Well done It works great except the display for which song is playing isn't accurate unless you switch between music players first

Do Not

Sometimes has issues starting apps like Player Pro and Pocket Casts, any fix for this? Also it shows the wrong info, i.e. Pocket Casts info for Player Pro songs.

Tony Daws

I've been using Music Boss for a couple years now and it is by far the most useful Pebble app and the most well-used. It is terrific being able to control my audio books and music using my Pebble without having to look at the screen at all. Very highly recommended. Had an issue that turned out to not be related to Music Boss, but the developer responded quickly and helped me with that. That level of support is a rarity these days.

eddie pearson

I'm a little confused... I purchased the app for $2.99 does this not include the color option? When I go into change it it asks me to pay an additional ¢99 help please

Christopher Blanchard

Good app but... I would KILL to have it support youtube playback. Especially with the new youtube red which makes streaming music much easier and battery economical

Christian Maldonado

Worked at first Worked at first but every time I launch the app from my watch it displays a song I had from a while ago and doesn't display any correct information. I'm stuck with using the default music app most of the time. And I'm not sure if I can get a refund ?


Great app great service Works like it should, way better than existing app. Had a question and he resonded less than 1 hour later which is almost unheard of

Jeff Yiu

Emailed developer but no reply. Works perfect on s6edge plus. After switching to LG V10, the play pause button doesnt work at all. Please help to fix.. Many Thanks.

John Bradley

5 star goodness Had question about the app, contacted the head cheese who got back to me straight away with answer to query . Downloaded it and it works a treat. This guy is a legend !!!!!! Buy the app ..... You won't regret it !

Ryan Lehr

Make sure your pebble is up ro date Had an issue at first, factory reset your device to make sure it's up to date.

Tyler Blair

Amazing Great app. Very customizable and works with no problems. I emailed the developer about a different app of his for support and got a response immediately. Very impressed.

John Toy

Awesome app! ADD APP TO CONTROL & ALLOW ACCESS FOR BOSS MUSIC ON YOUR PHONE... otherwise it won't work lol When I first installed it didn't work, I almost freaked as my misfit flash worked instantly. Then I realized I didn't add any programs to control or allow access on my phone for it to work... I didn't read any instructions, only the description and thought it would auto find my programs. After realizing my mistake I added "Power Amp" and "VLC". This app is pretty awesome and deserves the 4.5 + rating I saw at the time installed and wrote this. Thank you very much developer you knocked it out of the park!

Santtu Syrjälä

Would be more useful If there was a way to change Spotify playlists.

Kevin Hogeland

Does not work. Album art does not work with FB2K controller with either method of metadata capture. Album art worked once with Subsonic and never updated. Have fiddled around with settings and reinstalled both the phone and watch apps.

Brittany Cookiescar

Complete stupidity I restarted my phone (which I should never have to do for an app) to install your precious update. Now my Pebble won't pick my music up. Currently one of the stupidest apps I've ever downloaded.

Amanda Worthen

Works with Amazon Music!! I was ready to get rid of my Pebble and get a smartwatch that works with Amazon. Now that i have this app, i dont need a whole new watch. Developer is excellent, responded to my email overnight. I highly recommend this app. And don't skip the tutorial - it's quick and very informative. I should also mention, this works with all my audiobook programs too.

Nate Smith

Probably the best app for pebble. I'm shocked how well it works and how easy it is. Playing music while driving or running is now so much easier. Great job! Love it!

Ethan Rossow

Great app with way more features than Pebbles stock music app

Caitlin Rogers

Awesome app, if you have any problems then email the dev. Super helpful :)

Jonny Miller

Really great app for pebble Really love it. Features all work seamlessly. Only drawback is not all controls work on Netflix. I assume this is more to do with android/Netflix than this app however.

Greg Droge

Completely Satisfied Works better than the default music app. One tip I found made it work much better for me was to enable a setting which has the app automatically tune to control the app currently playing media. This setting can be changed on the phone app as follows: In the phone app, Settings > General > Enable "Auto switch current app"

Stephen Mosel

Awesome alternative to music controls Being able to switch between music apps like Google music and Spotify is super useful. Best app I've got.

Guy De Vos

Really good. Developer responds quickly if you have questions or problems. Ten stars.

jose carranza

One of the reasons why my Pebble is still on my wrist I love this app. It is by far one of the most used Apps on my Pebble!

Andrew King

Great app Does just what I want, allows me to control all my music apps from pebble. I mainly use it for Amazon Music, works great.

David Wormley

Makes listening so much easier I hate having to turn on the phone screen to use controls, and with Music Boss I can control media by touch without looking or having to get my phone out. Vastly improved user experience.

Alan Early

This is simply the most important app you need to get for your Pebble. Great customer service too, so it's definitely worth buying the premium version, if only to support the developer.

Jeremy Peichel

Great job This is what the pebble music app should have been. Would have paid even more for this level of functionality. Fantastic job!

Marc Peters

Should be the default music on pebble.

David Sagnay

Love it! I've been using this for years. A lot more customizable and polished than the stock Pebble music watch face. Customer support from the developer is very quick. I had my question answered in less than 12 hrs. A lot better than other developers I've experienced.

Ken Critchley

Works well and very useful One of my favourite apps.

Ryan McQuen

Indispensable It does so much--if your mind is not blown--you may be asleep.

Vincent L

Love it I love the app and love that you can change music apps on the pebble time.

Joseph Moreno

Great app! This is a great app and it works for online streaming with chromecast!

Christopher Stein

Only sometimes works. It worked OK with Plex, showing album art and all controls working but didn't show song title or artist. With my main music app of choice though it didn't do anything. It neither showed album art or controlled ZPlayer. It did however show the song title. But this isn't enough for me to use the app.

André Buckland

Amazing App Well worth the money and even worth the extra to get the motion controls enabled. The only shortcoming is that it still does not seem to work with Netflix on Android Lollipop. One of the recent updates said that this was fixed. Do I need to take additional steps to make it work? Already tried rebooting. Everything else works great.

Matthew Guardabascio

My Favorite Pebble App I record audio books, so I'm constantly using my phone both to listen to my own stuff for production purposes (Google Play Music) and other people's work (Audible), so this is by far the Pebble app I use most. It's fantastic. I've only ever had an issue once, right after I switched to a new phone, and the developer was responsive, knowledgeable, and has great customer service skills - I'm not very tech savvy, but he was neither condescending nor rude which is huge for me when dealing with app/device help.

Stoned Night

Two big thumbs up One suggestion...once you've paused the playback how about a really long press n hold on middle button of watch to close app on phone...10/21/2015 still lovin it the only request i have is mentioned above...10/25/2015 i keep getting told to update, i do then it says to download watch app 3.31 i download new watch app its still 2.91...what gives guys...i have a pebble steel

Yuya Iwabuchi

Great app But the process is taking up around 600mb of system memory, even after reboot. Awaiting fix.

Michael Gates

Edit(11/27/15): Up to 5 stars after the developer replied to this review and offered troubleshooting support or a refund. The default Pebble Time music app is much more reliable. This app seems buggy. It will display the wrong song, open itself automatically even when phone is off, etc. I would have gone for a refund if I realized this in the two hour window. $3 ain't much but it is the most I've paid for an app (ok wolfram alpha is the same price but it's exponentially more valuable/useful) and I couldn't be more disappointed. Maybe worth it if you have a Pebble classic/steel but still, seems pricy for what it's worth.

Danny Chew

Wonderful app, but latest update is causing a phone battery drain Phone battery is draining like crazy. Apparently the app is doing something in the background. GSM shows its draining 60+ percent for the battery.

Ronnie Maloon

Encroaching on Pandora for Pebble? Every time I use the Pandora for Pebble app, Music Boss starts too… help?

Kym Goh

great! best thing about my pebble imo. one thing (and perhaps it's my misunderstanding as to how the app works) but you can't launch an application from pebble right? seems like it will open what was last playing but hitting play doesn't do anything

radi o'head

Got probems Every two days it stops working till you give it notification permission. Makes it very anoying to use. Other than that its a great app.

Danny Chew

Wonderful app, but latest update is causing a phone battery drain Phone battery is draining like crazy. Apparently the app is doing something in the background. GSM shows its draining 60+ percent for the battery. UPDATE: A restart as suggested by developer has resolved the issue, either that or a combination with the update. Thanks!

Brandon Griffin

Music boss It's simply great. I walk a lot and now I don't need to hold my cell or keep pulling it out.

Crystal Lynn Hunter

Almost perfect Finally, an app for my pebble that works with Rhapsody. I was skeptical to buy because I didn't see this particular app mentioned. It's perfect. The only thing is when trying to set the display configuration it won't change to the album art. Says "configuration failed, try again." No worries though I'm just happy that I can use my watch to skip and change volume. 5 stars if fix album art glitch.

Robin Powell

This is going to sound absurd, but this app has significantly improved my quality of life. I read books via TTS for usually at least an hour each day, and no matter what I did, I *always* had huge problems with the rewind button driving my TTS apps. 2 or 3 "what the hell why won't this work argh!"s each day *adds up*. Music Boss has completely solved this. I hit the button on my watch and *it just works*. Every time. All the stars. Cheap at 10x the price.

Anthony Lam

Increased Bluetooth drain Awesome app on both device and the pebble. Only gripes are that bluetooth uses significantly more battery on my phone after installing music boss. Any suggested settings to minimize this?

M. Dinne Flansbury

I listen to audiobooks on several different apps and this has worked with all them as well as Play Music, Youtube, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. When I did have a question the developer responded to my inquiry within an hour with exactly what I needed to get things working. Using with a Pebble Time Round and loving the ability to leave my phone in my pocket...

André Buckland

Amazing App Well worth the money and even worth the extra to get the motion controls enabled. A must have for anyone with a pebble.

Samuel Young

Full screen mode? I am loving the app, I am just a little sad that the full screen mode disappeared.

Michael Villalba

Best It's what the pebble music app should have been. Kudos on making it easy to thumbs up music!

Raven Elizabeth

Love it Love it! Help icons are useful. ?

Mark Tenet

Great music app for options Set up has been a breeze so far. Options can take a little trial and error depending on the apps being used but that's to be expected with support for so many different apps available. Poweramp V3 Alpha broke support for the native pebble app and this works great and provides much more customization. Keep up the good work. **Could really benefit from a trial or something to test 1st since there are so many different apps to use and going the refund route can be a bit bothersome in some cases

Eric Wang

** Update -- after spending several hours playing around with this app, I have finally gotten it to work properly. It would help if the descriptions for the settings in the app were written in English as opposed to complete gibberish. I therefore give this app 3 stars for the difficult set-up. Once it is set up, it does perform its functions as advertised. Erratic behavior and difficult to configure. I set up Pandora and my Samsung music player apps to work with this. Sometimes the Music Boss app on my Pebble Time Round will switch between the two music apps, and sometimes it won't. Most of the time, the music information displayed on the watch face is the opposite of the source that is actually playing (e.g., if Pandora is playing, the watch face will display the information from the Samsung music player; if the Samsung music player is playing, it'll display the information from Pandora). Using the Music Boss app on my device, I also configured it so that the middle button is supposed to open the Music Boss app from the watch face if I press it 3 times. It does not work.

Ramon Mateo

Does what it says, mostly It's definitely better than the default music app that comes with the pebble, and the features it attempts to employ are fantastic, but it seems to be hit or miss when it comes to actually executing it's actions. More hits than misses, for sure, but when it doesn't work it simply won't do what it doesn't want to. Sometimes it will play media, but won't stop it. Or sometimes it will adjust volume, but nothing else. Also, won't display album info, ever. Overall, hope it gets fixed up soon, could be a great ap

Can't change playlists on Spotify? This isn't the complete media control solution if you can't switch playlists or stations. Side note: I had to reload the app to my watch after downloading the android app in order for other media apps to be switched directly from the watch-a minor inconvenience. Update: great communication from developer! I hope you implement this feature soon. Would update to 5 stars

Album Art is broken No longer reliably displays the album art, instead shows the same image regardless of song playing. The album art feature is the only compelling reason to use this app which now no longer works properly so...

OK. Can skip by holding up button?


Mostly Awesome This app is a GREAT idea and when it runs is AWESOME! Unfortunately, on a Samsung S5 and a Pebble Classic it only seems to work about 50% of the time.

Love it bar one little bug.. From time to time it changes its own mind about which app you're controlling

It's okay.. Not sure if it's worth the money yet.. Only thing this app does compared to the preloaded music app is that it allows you to switch apps. PLEASE ALLOW THIS APP TO CHANGE PLAYLISTS. That addition will make this app worth it alone.

A must have

Looks Great We Pebble fans know graphics wise, a Pebble doesn't hit the heights of Android Wear, but Music Boss does a damn fine job of displaying your album artwork on the watch. Minus one star due to hit and miss performance.

Volume step issue 3 different phones I've had a volume issue where I'd press volume up or down and although the device does change volume, the watch shows the same % making it impossible to really know the level you're listening to it at


Slow Compare to build - opening players don't work 80% of time mean have to open app manually or using tasker.Pause/slow to respond so volume.Because of using tasker to start music loosing poit why I paid for this app in fist place.

My most used app on the Pebble I listen to many podcasts and controls Podcast Addict perfectly. Love seeing the podcast art on the watch too.

Indispensable It does so much--if your mind is not blown--you may be asleep.

Scott Beaudry

A must have for any pebble owner who enjoys music.

Ultimate Control I'll be honest the stock pebble watch app works very well so I had a hard time figuring out exactly why I would want to use this app and what makes it better. I don't know if the stock music app used to be worse, but it works fine now. I tried to use this the 1st time and stopped using it. I tried it again and really tried to look into all of the features and what was better. Having the volume controls as the 1st option and automatic opening of the app when media starts make it worth it for me now.

It's good I use this almost exclusively now. I listen to audio books with one music app and normal music with another. I like being able to switch between them. However I find that the app will freeze on my watch a lot and I often have to spend up to 10mins restarting my watch, turn the Bluetooth off/on and even unpairing the watch and phone and reconnecting them before the app will start to work again. I regularly update all apps on my phone and watch as well, so I'm not sure why it stops working.

Liking it bar one little bug.. Regularly changes its mind about which app you're controlling.Tried suggested fix "Auto control" with no luck. Disappointed known fault not resolved.

A really handy music controller app We recently held a small event wherein I was the one managing the music. This app was really helpful on that occasion. No need to run to my phone if I need to adjust the volume or to open another music app. It is also great for my everyday commute. I don't have to pull out my phone from my pocket to play my music. I only have to plug my earpiece, open Music Boss like a boss = awesome music coming right up.

cody tellor

This app is better than the pebble music app I always use this app because it works with anything you can play and pause

gordon christie

Awesome Love how I can listen to music without touching my phone

Peter Tosi

Works with Pandora too I noticed a long press on up or down volume gives a thumbs up/down to Pandora too

scott keilers

It didn't even work at all for my phone or pebble. It was supposed to control my music and it didn't do any of that Would like a refund because it didn't work. Pandora didn't come up as well as Google music and other apps for music. A total waste of $4
