  • use scroll wheel to change volume
  • switch between phone and ringer volume
  • in call volume
  • skinning support
  • transparent background
  • customizable settings - see settings.ini
  • (W)VGA / (W)QVGA support
  • commandline parameters -hide / -inc / -dec / -close

Smartphone features:
  • Action / Return key to toggle between System and Ringer Volume
  • * key to toggle vibration

Thumbs up
Nice, i think i really gonna like this one. Though it does not work correctly when i slide my TyTNII open. I also cannot find it back at my program files via the start menu.

Edit:
The first run it said mute, but my phone was not muted...

great app so far!!
what do you think of the possibility to change the backlight? Maybe on a second page which looks the same as the volume!! switching with sliding left or right?
greetings

Very cool idea,
Trasparency would be fantastic, as well as being able to map it to my volume button, so instead of opening windows volume slider it opened this.

I agree, supporting backlight and volume button's mapping would be great
