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.

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?

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.

This tool is based on the idea from alexun. Link

You can either use the + / - buttons or swipe with your finger around the volume circle.
To mute simply press the middle button.
To close the app press the upper right corner.

  • Setting Vibrate is currently not added
  • so far only portrait mode
  • only QVGA

thanks a lot

Looks great man.
Addition of the vibration feature and possible an additional circle for backlight would be cool like others mentioned already.

As written so far only portrait mode is supported. Regarding the start menu entry, an updated version is avaible when you download it from the first post.

Transparent background might be an idea?

We already tested at first. But the problem is, that alphablending slows down the complete application extremely.

    10-grades skin

    Hello everyone.

    I was trying to create a skin with 10 degrees of loudness. But I failed.

    I made it out of diamond wvga theme. Here is a link to text of my new diamondWVGA.ini:


    There are the appropriate files for 10, 30, 50 etc percent of loudness in the skin folder.

    But the program shows up with only 5 standart degrees, as if I didn't change anything.

    When browsing the skin with shown polygons - there are only polygons for five of the loudness degrees. There are gaps between them. Exactli where my custom degrees should be.

    If anyone is interested in the same purpose - read it and tell me whats wrong.

    Excuse my English - I am from Russia.
