Default Tunewiki Bluetooth controls

Greetings all...

I've been using the Rhapsody app for sometime now... and have always been able to control the player controls via my vehicles Bluetooth connected radio. Out of the blue, when trying to previous or next my tracks, via my car radio, Tunewiki starts and begins playing. How do I keep this from happening? I disabled the Bluetooth controls, in the Tunewiki settings, but it's still happening. Quite frustrating.

Thanks.

Sorry... should have said that I disabled the headset controls.

Holy cow, I thought this was just me. "Frustrating" doesn't begin to cover it. This doesn't happen when I use my wireless Bluetooth headset, only when I use my car's (2012 Hyundai Sonata) controls.

Calls to Verizon were, of course, pointless.

Double Holy Cow, I also thought it was just me, but am glad I'm not the only one. I refuse to call Verizon based on the knowledge that I won't receive any help and will only be infuriated.

I have the Droid Charge. About 3-4 weeks ago, TuneWiki updated. I never, ever use TuneWiki...I use only Google Music or a running app (Runkeeper, Zombies! Run, etc.).

Ever since the update, I have the following problem: If I am using Bluteooth audio with my car or headphones (as above, I'm only using it with Google Music), when I advance the track, TuneWiki starts up "out of the blue" and takes over.

Totally irritating. And, of course, I can't uninstall it. I hope someone figures out and shares a fix soon.

I forgot to mention, yesterday, that I *did* roll the TuneWiki app back to its factory state, and that "fixes" the problem...of course, I constantly have a "updates found" icon in my taskbar, wanting me to update TuneWiki. Oh well.

This has been happening to me as well, I'll try uninstalling the updates. It happens in my car and with my Bluetooth enabled shower radio (this has caused some wet floors to get back to my phone and shut tunewiki off!)

I don't use the app but last night it kept starting up and playing random tracks. I uninstalled the updates and haven't had a problem since.

Hey Verizon F-you for not letting us remove crappy apps we don't want.

Yeah, tunewiki overrides everthing on bluetooth, including my precious pandora. Root, freeze or uninstall gets rid of that pesky app.
