AudioManager is both an application and a widget that lets you view all system volumes from your homescreen. You have one-click access to the alarm, music, alerts, ringer, system, and voice call volumes. Each of the volume meters has different level settings like 0-5, 0-7, and 0-15 which are Android presets. To make changes, just drag the marker to your preferred levels. If set to silent, certain volumes like the ringer & alerts give you the additional option to enable/disable vibration.
With the homescreen widget, there are two different sizes in the free version of this app, either small or large. When creating the widget, you’ll have the option to set the refresh rate of the volume levels. As with other apps/widgets, the more often it refreshes the more battery consumed.
Overall, the interface and graphics of this app mesh well with almost any homescreen. However, if you want additional customization options, the Pro version enables you to apply over 100 different skins (downloadable from the Android Market). The Pro version also features the ability to save preset volume profiles, built-in schedule to apply presets, and the ability to create and publish your own personalized skins.
- Adjust all system volumes from one place
- Homescreen widgets for instant accessibility
- Pro version enables application of 100+ customized skins
- Simple functionality in an attractive user-interface
Areas for improvement:
- Large widget should allow you to set volumes directly, not just open the app
Conclusion: An extremely simple, functional, and reliable Android app for quickly adjusting volume settings.
