You’ve done it and I’ve done it. You forgot to turn your phone’s ringer off for that important meeting or date night movie. It just so happens that a relative, friend, or coworker calls you, and now you’re embarrassed. Wouldn’t it be awesome if your phone was smart and it knew you had a meeting or you were at the movies, so it automatically silenced itself accordingly?

Persist + Volume Control, developed by Netroken, is a fantastic way to control every aspect of your Android device’s volume settings. From alarm levels to ringtones and special notifications, this is a fantastic app for anyone who would like to have a greater amount of control over their device.

Concept and Functionality

Persist+ is an absolute lifesaver for anyone who needs to frequently adjust their phone’s volume levels for different situations. By allowing users to create an unlimited number of custom volume and notification profiles, this app gives you complete control over how loud or quiet your device is.

To start using the app, simply open Persist+ and tap the + button to set up a new profile. It might take awhile to find your way around, but once you practice setting up profiles it’s a breeze to use.

Persist + Volume Control Android App Review

For example, you can use the app to turn your device’s volume off at night, while leaving your alarm volume setting maximized so you don’t miss it. You can also use home screen widgets for quick and easy access to Persist+ settings.

Though it’s a bit confusing at first, Persist+ certainly isn’t impossible to figure out. I do wish the app included some sort of brief tutorial or example to guide new users through the process of creating presets, but a bit of trial and error will work, as well.


Persist+ comes with an incredible number of features which can be accessed by users to enhance the volume management experience. For example, the app can be the sole manager of device volume settings using the “volume lock” feature. This means other apps can’t override Persist+, which darn near eliminates any chances of surprise volume level changes.

Lastly, anyone who carries their phone in their pocket or purse knows that their device is susceptible to having the silence switch flipped. Persist+ remedies the situation by offering the “pocket locker” feature, which essentially prevents volume controls from being changed when the phone’s screen is shut off.


Persist+ can be downloaded from Google Play for $3.99, which is a fantastic price when you consider what the app is capable of doing. There’s also a free version of Persist, but your controls are quite a bit more limited.

Users of similar apps like Tasker likely won’t need Persist+, but anyone who feels intimidated by such an app or is just looking for an app that strictly controls volume and notifications will find that Persist+ is exactly what they need.
