Q - Which is better? This or DSP Manager?
A - Neither. DSP Manager has a fully editable EQ whereas mine has EQ pre-sets and a volume multiplier. They both use the same API's (albeit in a slightly different way) but use different methods to achieve the volume boost. This app can also go much louder than DSP Manager can (not always a good thing!) so you will encounter distortion with the higher values.

THIS APP AND DSP MANAGER WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS IF THEY ARE BOTH ENABLED. PLEASE DISABLE ONE TO USE THE OTHER.

Q - Which is better? This or Voodoo Sound?
A - Voodoo Sound, If your kernel/phone supports it. See thread here - clickyclicky!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Only for Gingerbread (2.3) Roms.

Current Version: 1.7.4

KNOWN BUGS:
* None known

This is only for the main loudspeaker, turn it up too loud and it will distort horribly. You have been warned!
DSPManager will probably not work too nice with this app but it should be ok if you disable the "phone speaker" EQ in the settings.

The same effect can be achieved with DSPManager, but this can go much louder.

This shouldn't cause any damage to your phones speaker (unless you turn it up to +15 or so), but i would strongly advise against playing music out of your phone's speaker constantly. It distorts, therefore it's doing some damage, however minor it may be.
Enjoy!

Update: Volume+ v1.7.4 (ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. WILL BE UPLOADING TO MY WEBSITE SOON)

Sweet, now I can finally hear my ring tone on my N1. Bought your app for my G1 and it was awesome. Keep up the great work.

Awesome! Any chance to include a boost percentage? I find that it's a LITTLE bit too loud.

EDIT: Turned it off as I just realised that it COMPLETELY distorts my notification sound (Pollux).

Thumbs up
I can confirm that it is working on a myTouch slide running CM7RC4. Great work. Any chance of getting a boost on the small ear piece speaker. It is really quiet even when turned all the way up.
