    So I have discovered that the volume control for ringtone is separate from notification. Coming from my HTC One X I was spoiled by being able to use the volume rockers to control both ringtone and notification volumes together. I read thru the Note II and Galaxy S3 forums but the apps suggested there do not work on the Galaxy S4. I downloaded and tried a couple.

    Does anyone have a recommendation on how to link together and control both the ringtone and notification volumes on our S4s?
    Thanks!

    I must say this is an odd request, but understandable too.. Normally everyone is complaining they can't separately adjust these two settings

    I hear ya! And I understand why Samsung/Android works this way. But for me how I use it is at work: when in a meeting I want to turn both ringtone and notifications down to the lowest volume. When at my desk I want them both at mid-volume. And when I leave for the day - in my car I want them both at high volume. So I am continuously throughout the day adjusting my volumes. I'm just looking for an easier way! :-) Rather than have to go into volume settings each time.

    Completely understandable..

    I'm sure in time someone will have an app developed or ported/updated to work on the S4.

    Good luck

    It irritated me on the GS3 as well so I wrote a little app to adjust them both at once. Linked Volume Control in the Play store.
