android (Archived) Notification Sound Settings, please

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I love the notification function, but....

 

Please let the user set a different or no notification sound!

 

Right now it is just using the default notification sound, but I want to hear if I am getting a SMS, an Outlook reminder or an Evernote reminder!

 

And as I read around on the forums, some just want a visual reminder and no sound.

 

No, turning off the notifications is no good, as that will switch them all off

 

Possible workaround (cumbersome, but may work): set specific notification sounds for all the "other" apps and let Evernote as the only app using the default (only works if all your other apps let you choose a specific sound). Clunky and not Evernote worthy!

 

Thanks!

Hi swaldorff,

 

If you have a few dollars to spare ($2.50 on Google Play), the app Light Flow might help.  It will let you set LED, vibrations, and sound notifications on a per app basis. There is a free version, but Evernote is only supported on the paid version. That might help.

Hi all,

 

Nada, that doesn't work. I've tried it with Light Flow and what happens is that both sounds are invoked - the default and the LF designated. Most apps allow me to turn off Sound & Vibrate, which works perfect with Light Flow.

I agree that the Android app needs the ability for the user to specify a notification sound.  Without that feature, Evernote reminders are worthless and I'll just go back to using the calendar app in my phone for reminders.

 

Evernote reminders should also have a way to display the reminder on the lock screen and the home screen in addition to the notification bar.  I get so many things in my notification bar that I just ignore it anyway.

You can get reminders on the lockscreen with DashClock and Evernote DashCock extension, both free
