Default [APP] ICS Enhanced Ringer Control

Hi all,

Does it bug anyone else that in Android 4.0 (ICS) the ability to unlink the Notification and Ringer volume has been removed? It annoys the heck out of me! At night time I want my notification volume muted, but my ringer volume turned up so I don't miss calls. It has bugged me so much since I switched to ICS that I decided to write an app to "work around" the issue.

UPDATE - ICS Enhanced Ringer Control is now live on the market - https://market.android.com/details?i...csringervolume

So, what does the app do? Well it basically ignores the system sound settings in regards to notification volume/vibration, and uses the settings specified within this app instead. It's a workaround, but it works well!

Usage instructions and changelog are in the 2nd post.

Cheers,

Slopppy.

Brief usage instructions:

After installing the app, open it, choose the volume you want the ringer to be, whether you want it to vibrate or not, then finally check the bottom box to enable it. At this point, when you receive a phone call, it will ignore the system volume settings, and use these settings instead.

To turn it off, just launch the app again and uncheck the last checkbox. The regular notification volume settings will kick in as per normal.

It should run in the background, and should auto-start when you reboot.

Changelog:

Released 02-Feb-2011
  • New feature: Notifications! Gives you the option to enable a notification icon displaying the status of ICS Enhanced Ringer Control. Also gives you quick access to the app!
  • Green icon = enabled;
  • Red icon = disabled!
  • Tweaked the way the service starts after a reboot, actually works the way I intended now!
  • Minor code cleanup, increased the efficiency of the app in a few minor areas.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.01
Released 30-JAN-2012
  • Bugfix - Volume was restoring after making an outgoing phonceall ... not anymore!

I'm game to beta test it, as I was thinking about writing an app to do the same thing. You've saved me hours of work, so let's get your app up to prime time

Thanks!

Just installed it and I went 3 out of 7 and now maxing it out to 7 volume level. Now how does the app work if the volume is adjusted on the phone via volume rockers? Does your app override this level?

Yep, should work fine jimmy. Basically whenever the phone rings it saves the volume state, then overrides it with the settings you've specified, then restores them again afterwards.
