It’s happened to everyone with a mobile phone since mobile phones emerged – missing an important call because your phone was in your pocket, bag or desk drawer because the ringer volume was too low. If only there was a way to intelligently control your ringtone volume so that it automatically adjusted based on your surroundings. Good news – Intelligent Ringer for Android is one such free app that does just that.
By detecting your surroundings, the app automatically adjusts the ringer volume so that you’ve got a better chance of hearing it in loud situations. By taking the ambient volume of the room and a reading from the proximity sensor to detect whether the phone is in your pocket or not, the app can then use this data to adjust your device’s ringer volume. When you enable vibrate or silent, the app will stop adjusting the volume.
There are a few tweaks with regards to sensitivity of sound and light, so if you find the app is detecting too much noise and deafening you with shrill ringtones you can dial it back a notch. You can also limit or set a minimum volume to be adjusted to, useful if your phone has a very loud speaker on it. Be weary of battery use with this one, as it will be running constantly to perform its main function.
