Persist Volume Control

Persist Volume Control


Persist Volume Control is an amazing app that lets you take control of your device’s volume – instead of being controlled by it!

Here’s what the reviewers are saying:

★ “Persist is a new contender that's one of the most powerful we've seen, and comes with tons of options”. – LifeHacker (http://lifehacker.com/persist-for-android-offers-total-control-over-your-volu-1151275713)

★ “Smarter volume control app with predefined profiles!” – AndroidTapp (http://www.androidtapp.com/persist-volume-control/)

★ “Avoid many awkward moments, thanks to Persist” – Stelapps

★ “Useful widgets, you can switch from one preference to another in just a click” – App of the Day


HOW IT WORKS
Persist Volume Control is extremely easy to use. Simply tweak existing or create new pre-defined volume profiles, and toggle between them with just a single touch. Individual profiles are comprised of: Alarm, Media, Ringer, Notification, Voice (in-call), Bluetooth and overall system volume.

AUTOMATED CONVENIENCE
Persist Volume Control also detects when you insert headphones or activate Bluetooth, and automatically toggles to your preferred volume profile. You can even create automatic scheduled presets based on time of day, physical location, or a calendar event.
For example, if you plan heading into a business meeting, simply tell the app to turn off your ringer at precisely that time. Of if you're heading for a workout, tell the app to pump up the volume when you arrive at the fitness club. The list of possibilities is virtually limitless!


ADDITIONAL SPECIAL FEATURES
Here are some of the other special features you can look forward to:
- The option of separating or linking ringer volume and notification volume
- The ability to change ringtones for alarm, ringer and notifications
- Notification shortcuts for quick and easy access to controls and presets
- Integration with Tasker and Locale via the built-in preset plugin


INTERACTIVE WIDGETS
You can also access a fantastic suite of fully interactive Home Screen widgets, including:
- Preset (apply a set of audio settings);
- Preset List (apply any preset)
- Volume Locker (change/lock volume levels)
- Vibrate (toggle vibrate settings for ringer and notification)
- Ringer (toggle the ringer mode between silent, vibrate, and normal)
- Dashboard (various interactive volume controls)
Please note: to access the widgets, the app should not be installed to your SD card. Some Android versions may require a reboot for widgets to appear on your widget drawer.


AVOID ACCIDENTAL CHANGES
You’ll also love the cool “Pocket Locker” feature, which automatically prevents accidental volume changes by locking volume settings when your device screen turns off.

User reviews of Persist Volume Control
Did just what it said. Very good! Might be boring for my son pushing the volume control now without anything happening.

Major issues since update - unusable now! Ever since the 11/21 update I have been having issues with my sound profiles that used to work flawlessly. I have a profile to make my phone go silent at a specific time a day and now it doesn't switch to the profile automatically. I also have a profile for when I plug in the headphones to make the volume go all the way up and lock the volume. When I plug in the headphones it says the profile is active but it doesn't turn up the volume or lock it.

Good but. .. I've been glad to have easier access to volume controls but it's changing profiles at inappropriate times. Thankfully it's switching to vibrant mode because I'm more concerned with it being in quiet mode when I'm at work (technically I'm not supposed to have my phone on me at work). GPS set to go to silent when I'm at work but it'll set when I'm home. Then when I tap to go to default the settings for my phone are showing it on vibrate. Keep checking to see if I'm doing something wrong but nope

Uninstalled Kept switching between schemes all by itself. One minute would have no sound then at full volume, then back to normal, followed by nothing. Just to unreliable to have running on my nexus 7.
