Official release is in Google Play.

PerApp is a simple open source app that lets you set a few settings for individual apps. Specifically as of 1.03:
- orientation
- volume boost (Android 2.3+)
- screen timeout time
- CPU speed [root]
- font size
- input method [root]

I have a pre-release version here, with source code in the repository.

I wrote it because there is one app that I wanted to be able to lock the screen orientation for. I knew there is an app in the Market that does that, but I didn't like a recent review of it, so I wrote my own. :)

I am sure Tasker does all of this and more, but I prefer to use a simple, small and cheap app.

Only the CPU settings use root.

Yeah, install Android Log Collector, run Per App, and right after the crash go to Log Collector and email me (arpruss at gmail dot com) your log. I have yet to see private stuff in a log, but if you're really careful you can email the log to yourself first, look through it, and then forward it to me.

I just added:
- CPU min/max speed changing on a per app basis (needs root); you need to go to Menu | Settings to activate it, though.
- Jelly Bean support (needs root, as in JB one doesn't get the READ_LOGS permission without root; on ICS and below root is not needed).

Great work!

I suggest separating apps that had their settings changed from the ones with the default settings or puting them on top for easy access...
A change log in the OP would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

color me impressed. I've been using tasker to do such things but I'd like it in a seperate app, especially if I can export those settings later (apply them to other phones maybe?)

Does the volume boost work the other way around and can you use it on system apps? I'd really like to lower the volume of incoming facebook messages and the camera shutter since it doesn't seem to be affected by changing any sounds except for silent mode.

    Can you add per-app GPS setting?

    Great idea!

    I posted 0.06 which improves an audio boost issue.
