Quiet frankly I never really paid attention to my phone’s sound settings. I mean, I usually do only two things with regards to this – turn the volume on or turn it off. So, I was really curious to take a look at this Android app called AudioManager and see if it was really helpful. After installing the app and looking at it, I’m glad I did.
AudioManager is a simple app that does one purpose – to let you manage your Android device’s sound settings on your home screen instead of going through your app screen and tapping on several options before you arrived at the appropriate sound option.
AudioManager Android app – What it is and What it does
AudioManager is a home screen widget and volume manager that lets you get live readings of your Android phone’s current volume levels. Once you’ve added the AudioManager widget on your phone’s home screen, you can tap on the widget to adjust the volume levels.
AudioManager is available in both free and paid versions. While the free version is enough for your phone’s sound management needs, the pro version has some additional advanced features including, more than 100 widget skins, two widget sizes, the ability to save audio profiles, create profile shortcuts and more.
Using AudioManager Android Sound App
Right out of the box, you can immediately use AudioManager. You open the app and the main screen will show several sound-related options including – alarm volume, media volume, alerts volume, ringer volume, system volume and voice call volume. Opposite each of these options are sound meters which you can adjust via the slider below the options.
The other tab on the main screen is the Profile tab which allows you to save the sound settings (for Pro version). You can then select any of these Profiles to use for your device’s sound options.
The app also allows you to choose various sound settings. The options under the app’s settings is just a matter of ticking them on/off to suit your preferences. The various options under the app’s settings are – volumizer, status bar shortcut, ringer and alerts listing, restore ringer, vibrate, my audio profiles, refresh rate, widget skin, transparent background and download skins.
While these features are probably not useful to a general user, we surely appreciate having more options to tweak the app and sound settings. We feel that if you are anyways going to use an app just to manage your sound settings, the more features it has, the better it is.
