Re: Notification TONES specific to the occasion or event
Hi GSDer, I've been with my GS3 for a couple months now and having come from an iPhone I find the lack of persistent On Screen notifications to be a step backwards. The iP4 also has a configurable "nag" which I needed. App store may have something..still researching.
Sending and receiving are two unique events and should have unique identifiers. When I send SMS I want a short "Send OK" sound, but for receiving SMS I want a longer tone that I have a chance of hearing if the device is in a pocket. Here's a real world example of why the tone fails to convey the correct information as-is: I am in and out of my carriers zones and have roaming turned off. Let's say I send a text and throw the phone down. 5 minutes pass and I hear a notification tone. Is it an SMS from a friend, or is it telling me "Send OK" as I drive into a network covered area and the SMS is finally sent? A couple options to set the tones for these things fix this. Lastly it is tiring hearing the same tone over and over when having a long chat via SMS.
When I heard the GS3 had a notification LED I thought it'd be useful but there aren't enough stock options without an app to replace on screen notifications.
I am not an Apple fan boy but they did get a few things right.
