We've all been in this scenario before: you're in a coffee shop, library, or some other public place with your headphones on/earbuds in, jamming your favorite tune, when someone comes up and starts talking to you. Yes, they can see the buds in your ears, but they talk anyway. It doesn't matter that they're just going to have to repeat themselves after you grab your phone and pause the music - they have something to say. And you're going to hear it.
That's where easyMute comes into play. Instead of having to fumble around with your phone or remove your headphones, you can just place your hand over the device's proximity sensor.
