Looking for solutions, suggestions, apps, and whatever that would be good to fix some problems
So I have a couple things I am searching for.
First, does anyone know of a good way to change the way vibrations work on my phone? Mine is just a soft, two-pulse vibration that goes off once when I get a text. When I get a phone call, I get several longer pulses, which work really nice. I wish my notification pulse was better/stronger. I seem to only find applications that change the vibration settings for a single contact--but I want to do it for my notifications, not my contacts, and I want to do it for all of them, not just specific people.
Second, I have some longer notification-tones (better meant for ringtones, I suppose), and I like to have them because they are longer and less-likely to be mistooken for some other beeping noise. But what I've found that annoys me is that when one of these notifications go off, even if i get it in the first 2 seconds (and it's 20 seconds long), it doesn't matter what I do--it plays the whole thing. I can't silence it, I can't quiet it up, I can't do anything except let it play while I'm responding to the message, or whatever. I've had times where i've opened my phone, answered a message, closed it, and tried a few things along the way, and it's STILL going, no matter what I do. Power button does nothing. Volume change doesn't stop it. Shaking the phone doesn't do anything. I have no idea. Anybody know what to do for this or know a way to fix it?
Third, I am looking for a music player that will do more than the stock one. I like most of the features of the base, but I'd like a few more. One, I'd like it to be able to stream from a source of music when I choose (Google Drive, Dropbox, Google Play, or whatever else). Next, I like how the lock screen gets a screen for the music when there isn't a new notification, and would definitely like that to stay. The notification screen also has a spot where it shows the music playing and gives me the option to pause it, but it doesn't give me an option to skip, or repeat, or do anything else (such as what I could do on the lock screen). So potentially I have to either open the program and skip or replay, or I have to lock my screen to do it. The settings don't allow me to change these features.
Fourth, if anyone has really good settings apps they would recommend, or anything they feel is either essential, or pretty much a "would not live without" app, I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks in advance.
