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

***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.***
