I know that most of you are using your Android Honeycomb tablet together with a stand. And most of us protecting them with a cover. While using our tablets in this way it is a little bit hard to control the volume of a movie or when listening to music, from the hardware buttons which are placed in different places,on the tablet (usually on one of its sides). Therefore it would be great to have an application which would allow us to control the volume from the user interface. Much more easy would be if that application would place the software volume control in the notifications panel.
Well, I have a very good news for those of you which, like me, have wished this: Volume In Notification is a very simple application which does exactly the thing I described in the above mentioned paragraph. Don’t worry about it’s price! You should know that it is totally free and can be downloaded from Android Market, by accessing the following link: Download Volume in Notification
How Does Volume in Notifications Works?
Once you have installed Volume in Notifications, you will have to start it. And that’s all. It will remain open until your Android tablet will be restarted.
You will use Volume in Notifications when watching a movie, listening to music, radio or podcasts, playing games or running your favorite applications. The great thing about this application is that it does not need for your tablet to be rooted. It runs on all recently released Android OS Versions for tablets (Android 3.0), and on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, too.
After you have installed Volume in Notifications you will see that a new icon will appear on the notification panel of your Android tablet. By tapping the Volume in Notifications icon, you will find three buttons which will let you increase, decrease or mute the sound of the application which is already running. You will find one advantage and one disadvantage, too when working with Volume in Notifications. The advantage is that, when pressing its icon, the volume controls will appear without the need that the Android Notifications Panel to be displayed. The disadvantage comes from the fact that when after one volume control is touched, the application interface will disappear. Therefore, it is a smart choice to use its controls only for muting the sound on your tablet. I think that the best improvement that can be brought to the future versions of Volume in Notifications Android app would be a linear control of the volume which should replace the increasing and decreasing volume controls.
As I said before, you can install Volume in Notifications on your Android Honeycomb tablet and it will do a great job. Also, this Android Application supports the next versions of Honeycomb, together with the newly released Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
