We've all been there - cranking up the notification and ringtone volumes of our Android phones, so that we can hear them jingle when in our pockets or purses, then jumping on the chair when we get a notification while browsing, for instance.

I use Volume Widget by Leep Studios to adjust my volume levels.

I use Volume Toggle by Emsis Siko.

They way I have it setup.....in call and alarm volume is always high...with the others set in specific groups: Loud, Normal, Silence, etc...and I can adjust individual volumes in each one.

But I always leave in call and alarm high.

Nothing new. I use Smart Ring Control Android app, to lower the volume when my phone is unlocked. After all, if it's unlocked, then I'm looking at it, and won't miss any calls/notifications, right? Besides, the app allows me to have different ring volume when vertical in my pocket, and when sitting on my desk.
