Volume Rocker allows users to easily switch between audio profiles

Screenshot_9If you're anything like me, then you're probably on an eternal search to find a volume manager app.

Other mobile operating systems don't give you extended options, but if you have an HTC EVO (or any other Android device) there are many to choose from.

Today, I'm going to look at one of the newer ones: Volume Rocker (free).

The app is easy to access because it's always in the notification pulldown. Unfortunately for those who like to keep their status bars as neat and clean as possible at all times, it's also always in the notification pulldown.

If you can get past the fact that there is a little box chillin' in the corner of your screen at all times, though, then Volume Rocker can make it very easy to use the volume buttons on your EVO to switch between multiple options with custom profiles. 

Let's take a closer look at this app below. 

Setup is incredibly simple. Once installed, you just open it up from the app drawer.

You'll see a volume slider that has five options: Silent, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Loud.  

The nice thing about these five options is that you get to decide how loud or quiet these options are. To adjust them, go to the Presets button on the volume slider. From there, you can adjust Ringer Volume, Notification Volume (and whether either of those two vibrate), System Volume (like keyboard volume), In Call Volume, Alarm Volume, and Media Volume (for games and music). 

Once you have everything setup the way you like it, volume adjustment has never been easier. 

Another nice feature is the Settings menu, where you can change the look of the volume slider and the behavior of the app.

    Does this help the poor volume on the E3D without hurting the speaker?

  • Hasn’t it always done that?

  • I’ve been running the Bender Bliss 3.5 Rom and it seems to have pretty decent sound profile controls in the drop-down quick settings menu already.

  • I’m still looking for a tool (or even a ROM) that will allow me to control my volume with the rocker with out me needing to unlock my phone. Sometimes you need to turn the phone volume up or down quickly (like when you forget in the middle of a meeting or a class). Anyone hear about anything like that?
