Volume Control is a neat little application and widget combo that gives you precise control over a range of volume settings on your phone, including ring tones, media playback, notifications and alarms. Rather than having to dive into your phone’s menus to access these, you can tweak them either from your handset’s home screen, via the widget, or just by launching the app.
You can adjust the app’s main and background colour and choose whether you want the volume levels represented by dials, buttons or bars. There’s also a Lock Volume setting that lets you lock the controls to prevent unwanted changes to the volume levels or ringer mode. The widget also has a mute button so you can quickly completely mute the phone to avoid unnecessary interruptions in meetings.
There are plenty of volume control apps available for Android, but with its well-designed interface and easy to use controls Volume Control is probably the best out there.
