cV3 - Change Volume App
offer two versions of our cV3 (Change Volume in 3 Touches)
application: cV3 Free and cV3 Pro. Our cV3 app will allow you to change
the volume for the 5 sound channels: Ringer (phone), Alarm, Notifications, Music and System. And, in keeping with our 3 touch concept, you can do this too with only three screen touches!
You can use your computer and go the Google Play Store and remotely schedule the download and installation of our Free app to any one of your Android devices. Or, directly from your Android phone, you can go to the Google Play Store app and do a search on Volume and find our cV3 Free app.
Look for our cV3 icon (below) to help you find it faster. There are several pages you will have to page through to find us.
Setting the volume on Android devices with phone capability is complex, time consuming and for many users, puzzling at times. We wanted to greatly simplify this process and make it clean, simple and fast. cV3 is the results of our efforts.
When you look at the main screen of cV3 you'll see 5 buttons to set the sound and one button to get to the Settings screen. The High, Medium and Low buttons set all 5 sound channels: Ringer (phone), Alarm, Notifications, Music and System. One button, one touch sets them all.
Note that if your Android device does not have a built-in phone, there will be no Ringer tone volume setting since it doesn't exist. On the Main screen, the Vibrate button will be marked as "n/a". On devices with no built-in phone, you will be able to control the remaining 4 sound channels.
The Silent and Vibrate buttons are, by Android design, only for the phone ringer. But our design changes that to greatly simpilfy the process: the other sound channels will follow the ringer sound. If you don't have a phone, the Notification sound becomes the lead sound and all other sound channels will follow that volume setting.
So, when you press Silent, our design assumption is that you want your device to be silent and this inlcudes not only the phone ringer. For example, if you walk into a movie theater and press the Silent button, your phone will be silent...completely. What good would it do it silence your ringer and have the other sound channels make noise in the middle of a movie? Doesn't make any sense. So when you press Silent, alarms, notifications, music and system sound channels are set to 0 volume (since they can't be set per se to silent). We just turn off their sound.
When you press Vibrate, the phone ringer is set to vibrate but since the other sound channels don't support vibrate, we set their volume levels down to 0 so they don't make any noise. Again, our design assumption is that when you use Silent or Vibrate, you don't want your device to make any normal sounds.
You can go into the Settings->Sound section and manually over ride any of these settings if you wish.But our design assumption is that your settings using cV3 will always operate on all 5 (or 4) sound channels.
