    Default Notification volume on ICS

    Is a 3rd party app really the only solution to having the notification volume change with the ringer volume on ICS?

    If you go into settings, sound, volumes you can change notification volume, media, ringtone, and alarm also.
    Edit. Sorry I understand what your wanting. You do need a 3rd party app I believe.

    Why would they change that? So weird.

    I was wondering the same thing. Not thrilled about them removing the check box. I hope out it is in a hidden menu somewhere.

    Try Audio Control, it's by far the best volume management app in the Google Play store. There is both a notification and ringer volume for ICS or Jelly Bean.
    Really helpful developer too.

    I made a quick one since all the others were overkill for what I wanted to do. Seems like pure Android joins the two together so the skins for Motorola and Samsung decided to break them out again.
    This will adjust the ringer and notification volumes at the same time, but still keep them separate if you want to adjust one manually.

    Thanks for that @Averix. Its better with this, but I still think the main volume buttons should work and that I shouldnt need another app to workaround this *bug*.

    So do you have to open the app to adjust both volumes our does it tie into the stock volume buttons? Thanks

    App has to be open. When it's open, the physical volume rocker or on screen slider will set both volumes. I didn't make it a service and didn't want something that sits in the background sucking up cycles. There are plenty of more complicated apps for that functionality.

    Very frustrating as well. Not user friendly to people who do not want to constantly be changing separate volumes throughout the day. It would be nice to have an option to keep one master volume or separate them. Let me know if you find a good app that keeps them together!

    Volume+ has came in very handy with my evo 3d, Gnex and now my Maxx. It's def worth the money.

    Unfortunately, not available in Hungary on Google Play. Any alternative download option?

    According to the publish settings on Google Play, it should be available in all countries. It is only available on 4.0.X+, nothing lower than ICS. So, if you're on an ICS or JB device, the app should be appearing in Google Play.

    Volume Butler is the best app for separate ringer and notification volumes, and it's free. The app is simply one of the best apps I've ever seen.
