Controlling other volumes....

Which volumes should be controlled?
  • Why should anyone want to control the media volume outside a media-application?! This makes no sense to me.
  • The same with handset volume, it can be adapted while speaking.
  • Notification-Volume is connected with Ringer volume by default. I don't see a need to change the levels separately, at all.
  • The volume-level of Alarm is the only further one, which should be controlled separately.
  • Please tell me, what you think!


  1. I agree with all of those things.

    As in your post below, my main request is for number 8! A widget for On/Vibration/Silent :)

  2. I think you should be able to control media volume. Sometimes it's nice to adjust that before opening media player.

  4. I had a Nokia phone before. In this phones you can set customized Sound Profiles, like Silent, Noisy Environment, etc..
    I used this a lot, e.g. At Home, At Work, Outside. This profiles also made it possible to define different Sounds per profile, e.g. a very loud ringtone for certain profile.
    I think Notification Volume, Alarm Volume and System Volume should be enough to be controlled.
    I really like to see those kind of profiles in your very nice tool. I would be willing to pay a small amount for this.

  5. Could you post the code that you use to set the volume on the android?


  6. Thanks - GREAT!
    Agreed, need only this to control volume for apps designed to "wake you up" when the phone/pda is resting.

  7. I have a HTC Thunderbolt and the volume rocker has a very light touch, so the volume is always changing without my knowing it. Since I use hearing aids, it would be very helpful to be able to lock in the handset volume so that I wasn't always having to adjust it during a call after accidentally changing it. The volume often gets changed by holding the phone up to my ear during a call.
