    So I know how to change the notification sound for most apps like text and gmail. However, some apps like Snapchat don't have any option for an app specific sound, just notification on or off. Is there a way to get android to use a different sound for those apps? So I'm looking for a way to set a sound specific to Snapchat, not a way to upload new ringtones. Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central!

    That idea does sound nifty. An app or other mechanism that will allow you to individually set notification sounds for your different apps. I've not come across anything like that in my travels but perhaps some of our other members have.

    I have not come across anything either, if the developer did not include a way to change the notificaiton then I think you are stuck, and I can't see there being an app developed that would allow you to do this as it would have to change the app itself, unless it was over ridden somehow.
    Personally, I have an issue when I log into my Facebook on my S4, when it first loads it makes my Default SMS message sound, and there is NO way to change that, makes me made because it doesn't fit what so ever. So I hear where you are coming from

    Well glad to know that I'm not the only one suffering from this. It is frustrating indeed because most of my apps have a distinct sound, but a handful of them just use the default notification sound, so there is no way to know if it's a Snapchat or something else. Sounds like I'll just have to hope Snapchat builds in the notification settings down the road.

    That would be such a great feature. Any developers reading this, please make an app!

    I'll try posting in development forums. Maybe there is already something out there for other devices.

    Peter you may be going about this the wrong way. Instead of looking for a 3rd party app, try going to the actual developer of Snapchat and suggest being able to change the notification in a future build. I think you would have a much better response that way.

    LightFlow controls alot more than the light.
    I've used it on a ton of devices since the Nexus One both with & without LED indicators.
    It can control:
    -LED
    -sound
    -vibration
    -camera flash
    -reminders

    And can also push Notifications to:
    -DashClock
    -Pebble
