Audio [APP][2.1+] Don't Pause - Automatically silence notifications while playing media

Don't Pause!


My wife and her friend recently came to Android from the iPhone. Their only main complaint was that when they are listening to music in their cars and they get a notification, the music pauses for a second or two to play the notification sound.

I was unable to find any apps out there that handle this, so I created one called "Don't Pause".

It requires no configuration. Just download "Don't Pause and click the start button to start the service. It runs in the background and whenever you start music, the app will put your phone into vibrate mode. After you stop the music, "Don't Pause" changes your phone back to normal volume. It is that simple.

I have added in a "Tablet mode" to support devices that do not have a vibrate mode. If the standard mode is not working for you, just go into the settings and check the box for "Silence notifications only". This will silence your notification stream and leave the others as they were.

Don't Pause now stores your volume preference and restores your preferred volume after the service is stopped.

The free version of Don't Pause now has an In-App purchase option to seamlessly upgrade to pro without having to download another app. Look for this option in the settings menu.

Thanks for checking it out.

Don't Pause is now Open Source. Check out the code on GitHub or fork it and help me continue making it better.

If you use my code, all I ask is that you give me credit in your project.

    v3.2 -- The long awaited update is here. I have finally fixed the bug that was setting your notification volume too high. Now, when you are using tablet mode, the app will store your notification volume on start, and it will restore your volume to your setting when you stop the service. 
    v3.1 -- Finally updated the old 2x1 widget, and added full russian translation.
    v3.0 -- Fixed the settings menu for people using Android 2.1-3.0. Lowered exit notification volume, Improved the look of the widget.
    v2.8 -- gave control back to the user when the service is running but music is not playing, changed notification icon, added tablet mode into the free version, added compatibility for Android 2.1+
    v2.4 -- Added preference screen for advertisements and notification otpion. Cleaned up unused code.
    v2.3 -- Localization of some strings and widget fixes/mods.
    v2.2 -- Added the 1x1 widget that many people requested

***IF YOU ARE USING GOOGLE DRIVE TO OBTAIN THE APP, MAKE SURE TO UNINSTALL THE OLD VERSION BEFORE INSTALLING THE NEW VERSION***




***DISCLAIMER - there is an interstitial ad when you click to stop the service. That is the only time you will see an ad. Did not want anyone to think I was trying to cover anything up.***

Default Tasker support

It would be awesome to have this be able to be enabled and disabled via a tasker profile. Any chance that could happen?

Yes, it will still Pause when a call comes it. If you reject or miss the call it will resume playback automatically
