    You can get the full version of Volume+ HERE for free, from the authors site. Set Volume at +8 with Treble Boost, you will be much happier with the GN speaker.

    I wouldn't call the 'issue' terrible. But I did put a 3db boost on mine to make it sound a bit louder. Don't push it too high though or you'll end up busting your speaker.

    you have to download it from the file sharing site and enable 'Install from 3rd party Sources' (not sure of the terminology) in the settings.

    Put it in your downloads folder and then use something like Astro File Viewer. Then you press the .apk file, it will allow you to install it.

    Once the file is downloaded, expand your notifications bar at the top of the screen, and tap on the .APK file and it will install. Clear the notifications bar when everything's done.

    If you clear the notifications and forgot to click on the file to install, open your All Apps screen, tap on the Downloads icon, then access it from there.

    like somebody else mentioned... any idea of long term damage to the speaker by cranking it up so much?

    i installed this app but not going to use it unless i feel its unpowered. maybe then only turn it up a few notches.

    I just turn on the speaker modification and put it on +3. But I normally keep my volume low unless listening to a podcast.

    Dumb question, but...what's Headset Settings exactly? Does that determine how loud we hear the person's voice with the phone to our ear?

    I played with this today, the volume actually got lower if I tryed anything over 8+.
    It slightly helped but I think it is a combonation of low volume ringtones/sounds and a slight software issue.

    so i bought the GNex today from vzw corporate (apparently their second shipment - they sold out on thurs) and my volume (speaker, ring etc) is quite good

    almost comparable to OG Droid volumes without this app

    I may try this app. I generally can't hear my notifications unless the room is very quiet. However, I wouln't be surprised if Google addressed this in a future build of ICS.

    First time, I wasn't impressed either. Until, I realized I had the wrong app. The exact search term is " Volume+ (Sound Boost) ". You can copy & paste that into the android market search field minus the quotation marks. The free version doesn't have sound boost in it's title and the volume level won't go up high enough. In preferences in the app, you need to be able to select somewhere between 8-10. Too low, nothing and too high doesn't work either.

    Very important, when you download the app for the first time, there is quick one time visual tutorial. Do everything exactly what it says to do, if not, won't work. If you can take screen shots of the directions, your better off. After the one time, you would have to un—install and than re—install to see it again. It only comes up right after the initial install.

    The only variance is your volume number in the preferences . Test, if it's working, by listening to the preset ring tones in the system settings of the phone.
    I was afraid, that I might of had to exchange the phone because the speaker volume was so bad. This app makes a significant difference.
