The launch of the fifth version of OS Android has brought a lot of new and interesting information, but it was not without problems. Along with the shortcomings inherent in such an upgrading, Lollipop suffer due to voluntary changes less inspired, and application SoundHUD trying to fix at least one of them: the lack of Silent mode no vacancy.
The new control panel sound notifications and represents a novelty in Android 5.0It offers also the possibility to schedule specific time in which the user does not want to be disturbed. Unfortunately, the company looked to implement a Silent vibration and sound to interrupt when the user does not want to be disturbed in any way. Google optimized to a certain extent this way of working Android 5.1But those who have not yet received this update will probably prefer a solution like SoundHUD.
SoundHUD is a simple application that fully substitute for volume control module and user profiles InterruptionsIt integrating with service Accessibility to be able to function as a system service. Before activating the application, it is recommended to disable profiles none or Priority because you will not have direct access to them, tranquility scheduling intervals (Downtime) Or activation bypass menu Settings will still operate continuously.
The most important improvement offered by SoundHUD Silent mode is the implementation of a full. As to date, the user can manually descending volume to activate VibrationBut by an additional push button, SoundHUD will cut both sound and vibration.
This is not the only advantage given application. SoundHUD Hold allows you to assign buttons volume Up si volume Down with an application, a shortcut or a specific module of the operating system. Unfortunately, among these actions not just include rapid activation of the new Silent mode, users with no other options than repeatedly pressing volume Down or clicking Mute the new menu for volume control.
Depending on the implementation Android, SoundHUD play three or more potentiometers to adjust the sound levels of the various software modules, where Nexus 4 the adjustments provided for alarm calls and streaming media. An interesting option is the possibility of changing the default volume potentiometer, tablet users being able to directly control the volume average almost useless in place fit for ringtones.
Because the application is very simple, no options can not be too rich. Users can choose to display a large panel for all potentiometers for volume of a single volume indicator overlaid Status Bar or a simple indicator strips and colors can also be customized according to preference.
Along with these options and a list that allows you to select incompatible applications SoundHUDUsers do not really have anything else available. SoundHUD is, unfortunately, a perfect product, working his way "unorthodox" can conflict with certain implementations Android. Regarding case Nexus 4We found for example that sometimes require two button presses Silent activation and additional volume potentiometers can not always be controlled from buttons and users Galaxy Note 3 have reported that Silent mode activeazs and how None of Interruption, leading to discontinuation sound alarms. Fortunately, the app is available for free and offers a trial period of 14 days, large enough to detect potential problems.
