Android :: Need Sound Manager Widget / App For Alert Notifications
Dec 29, 2009
I want to change the alert sounds for various events: email notification, SMS, power status, Google Talk, etc. I can change the alert sound via Settings->Sound & display->Notification ringtone, but the sound is identical for all the various notifications which seems ridiculous. Is there an app or widget which allows me to assign different notification sounds to different events?
Its probably just because I am a tard but can you make it so when you put it on silent you cant hit the volume up and down on the Motorolla Droid.Also can I make my notifications vibrate instead of sound or no sound?
One little thing I miss on my Blackberry was that I had it set to vibrate once for Social Network notifications, twice for an email and three times for an SMS. That way I knew how important it might be and whether to take it out of my pocket. My T-Mobile G2/HTC Hero (1.5) doesn't seem to have the option to change the default "vibrate twice". Is there any way of changing it? Or an app that might do it?
Whenever I get a text message Handcent plays a song from my MP3's. Even though I have set it to use a simple notification. The song plays all the way through too, the only way I can silence it is to turn off my ringer volume. But then I have no ringer.
I have one specific person in my phone, and whenever they text me, it pops up on the screen and stuff, but the phone will not vibrate, will not make the alert noise or anything, Ive tried deleting and reading the contact, i tried making a custom sound for them, etc.. so weird. they aren't on a black list or anything. anyone else have this problem? what do i do?
I have a quick question about gmail, on my new hero I have two apps one called mail and one called gmail, the gmail app shows all the emails in my gmail inbox but the mail app does not what's the difference between these two and how can I stop getting two notifications everytime I get an email?
Looking for some help, just got my SGS a few days ago and m having trouble setting a sound as my text message alert. I have downloaded a few soundboards and want to use one of them....i press and hold the sound i want and set as my default notification.....i then go into settings and choose the relevant sound but everytime i get a text I'm still getting the stupid t-mobile msg sound.
Is there any way to turn off all sounds except for one incoming number? I like to have my phone completely off by when my ex wife has our son, I'd like to keep it on just for if she calls. Is this possible?
My definition/expectation of a 'notification' is a graphic/text message with the option to enable/disable a sound to alert me that the notification came in per app.
I want to:
1- enable/disable graphic/text per app
2- enable/disable sound per app
For #1, it looks like I have to go Setting>App Manager>All>Uncheck 'show notifications'. But, apparently that will disable everything...ie, no graphic/text or sound. I've tried lock screen and notification apps without luck so far......
Ive searched through the forums, and no one seems to have this exact question. When everyone other than my girlfriend texts me, my phone vibrates and plays the notification sound. Now, when my girlfriend texts me, I get no vibration, AND no sound. The only thing I could think of is that I gave my girlfriend a custom ringtone I made with ringdroid, but that wouldn't make any sense since its for a call, not a text. Please help me, shes getting mad at me when I respond 2 hours later.
How do I assign an MP3 or indeed other audio file for my TXT message alert.? I have created and assigned about 5 different ringtones to both individuals and groups, but I can't get the phone to accept a MP3 as the txt notification ?
I have a sound clip that I want to use as my sms alert. I have placed it on the sd card under Audio/Notifications and I can play the sound file OK but when i go to the settings of the sms app (Handcent SMS) and choose Notification Setting and then Select Ringtone, it does not display the sound file. I have stored on the card, just the built-in ones, How do I make the app use the stored sound file.
How does one access a particular widget from within a custom layout while using Alert Builder? As you can see below, I'm setting the alert to a widget that is created in the code, but I'd MUCH rather use predefined layout.
However, whenever I try to do it the second way I get a null pointer exception.
I am creating one notification based on some event. This notification will only create sound. I just want to generate the sound using this notification, but no UI. Following is my code for this: // make notification sound whenever the device is connected or disconnected Notification notification = new Notification(); notification.defaults |= Notification.DEFAULT_SOUND; notification.flags = Notification.FLAG_AUTO_CANCEL; NotificationManager manager = (NotificationManager) mContext.getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE); // notify to all, manager.notify(0, notification);
I am facing few problems and have some doubts. I tried to search for answers in this post but could not find, so I am posting here for your people's suggestions: 1. Here I am using 0 as id for the notification. Is it good in practice. Since, I don't want to that this notification conflicts with other. 2. I have one doubt, about notification ids, e.g. if i keep my notifications id as 1 and some other application also have set that as 1. In that case, will my notification be updated. or Android treats, application's notifications differently. 3. Is it necessary to add FLAG_AUTO_CANCEL flag in my notification. Because, I think this is used when notification will appear in the status bar. But in my case, I have no UI. It means nothing will appear in status bar. 4. Currently there is one problem. When my notification makes sound, sometimes it seems that it is suppressed or distorted by any other sound or event. I am not sure what is happening there.
Is there an application (or one in the works) that will allow us to apply a sound effect to the slider opening and closing? Maybe base it off of when the screen rotates + keyboard lights up? I would love to apply 2 seperate notifications. One for open and one for close. Anyone got an application like this in the works or know of one that would work on Samsung Moment? I know there is a notification for when you unplug the power, but I'd love to have 2 seperate from that for JUST the slider. I can't believe we can't modify seperate notification sounds custom without apps.
When i receive a text message the phone doesnt sound an alert or vibrate, really annoying having to keep checking the phone to see if i have any messages. The software is all up to date, ive reset the alert tone in the notification settings, and im afraid thats all my knowledge used up. Ringtone sound is fine and it also vibrates for that.
i would love to see an app that you can record custom notifications that would convert the recorded sounds to emulate the "DROOOID" sound, like say "GMAIL" when you get an email, or whatever notifications you have on your phone. yeah, I could record things at work, distort them to sound similar, but a downloadable app on the phone would be AWESOME!

Is there an app or widget that will turn off the alert volume at set times? I need to keep my phone on at all times, but the notifications wake me up. I only need the ringer on. I just want an easy way to turn off the notifications and alerts rather than having to open up the options every night.
I don't think there is, but maybe someone knows how. Does anyone know if there is a way to turn on sounds on gmail notifications. I want to be able to still receive notifications popups, but I don't want sound to play on them. I know I can turn off sounds on all notifications but I only want to on Gmail.
