Notifications Off when Srceen is On

Recommended Posts

Is there an app that could mute sounds when the device is in use?

We usually have several communication apps and they all make sounds if they're running in background. That gets really annoying when you're using the device :-( I don't need sounds at full volume when I'm looking at the screen.

The best way to solve this would be muting (or lowering the volume) the sounds when the screen is on and unmuting when off. This would be a simple and not resource-hungry solution, but does it exist?

Tasker  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.taskerm  or automateit https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=AutomateIt.mainPackage from the play store let you define rules that do what you want.  Automateit is free but limited to single triggers per rule, which shouldnt matter in your case and tasker is £2.99 and has a lot more functionality.

Both can use screen on/off as a trigger and volume level/mute as an action.

Hope this helps.

my pleasure :-)

I forgot to mention that automateit also has a pro version that has multiple triggers.

Tasker seems to be a bit lighter on resources though.
