After spending a summer doing field research, I have finally launched my side project noyze. It is a volume panel replacement for devices running Android Jelly Bean MR2 (4.3+) or newer.

Best of all, noyze does not require root, a custom ROM, or the XPosed framework.
Noyze gives you complete control of the volume buttons:
  • Themes - try out different styles and find the theme that works for you. Try iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone, status bar, and much more.
  • Long press actions - skip to the next/ previous song, launch the flashlight, or perform any shortcut simply by holding the volume buttons.
  • Contextual panel - Noyze can hide for fullscreen apps like YouTube, Netflix, etc.
  • Master volume - sync all volumes to a single channel.
  • Disable buttons - especially useful for broken or jammed volume buttons.

Several themes can also display album art/ media information and allow you to control multiple volumes without leaving the current app (like CyanogenMod's Extended Controls).

Thanks for reading and looking forward to feedback!

Since the update to Aspen v1.3 on Sept. 24 it keeps asking for notification access though it's already been granted and some bug with the accessibility service keeps resulting in not being able to touch anything on the screen requiring a reboot.

Thanks!

Android 4.2?
Hey. This app is *exactly* what I'm looking for. But I'm stuck on Android 4.2.2 and can't upgrade. Any chance you can extend support to 4.2? Thanks!

Been using this for a while and love it - bought pro almost immediately No issues for me, but there are two things I'd like to see if possible/you're so inclined: orientation switch on buttons and the ability to have a theme per app, or someway to pop up media buttons only when a media app is running. I like the status bar theme for the most part, bit the Heads Up one is perfect when listening to music.

Regardless of whether these are implemented, it's a keeper for me - thank you very much dev.

Looks nice, will try for sure. By the way, add whitespace between screenshots in OP post, it looks confusing.

Please make it like an Xposed Module

and add more animations

Like Windows Phone volume panel. it isnt animated and have no option to customize, I wish it could be a bit transparent and the art album when playing music more vivid

Is it possible to choose another volume panel for fullscreen apps? I want to use a compact one for fullscreen apps and normal for other activities.

great little app!

there's an "issue" with Chromecast while casting: Chromecast adds an extra volume panel with Chromecast icon which doesn't show when using Noyze (unless i missed a certain setting for it). it still adjusts the volume though, just shows the headset volume panel.
