volumeNotifier

Normally, when you increase or decrease the volume on your iPhone, a large volume HUD appears on the center of the screen that displays the volume level as you adjust it. VolumeNotifier is a brand new jailbreak tweak that goes a little step further and notifies you when you change the volume on your device.

The tweak adds a sound effect when you’re changing the volume such that when you increase or decrease the volume, a beep sound is made, just like how it works on Mac.

With that said, the tweak works with both the Ringer as well as the media volume. However, when you start playing a song, you’ll no longer hear a beep sound when adjusting the volume. It only works when there’s no music playing on your device. Also as you’d expect, the beep sound will also be disabled when you switch the Silent toggle on.

Personally, I’m not in favor of the tweak as it can get quite annoying especially when you want to raise the volume from 0% up to the maximum level and will have to hear a continuous streak of beeps. Indeed, the developer could make the beep sound adaptable to the volume level such that the it would be high when the volume level is maximum and would gradually decrease as you reduce the volume.

VolumeNotifier comes with no settings to configure, so once you’ve installed it, you should start hearing the beep sound when adjusting the volume level on your iPhone. The tweak works on both iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices and can be installed from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free.

      There was a time, if you don’t jailbreak, the stupid iPhone didn’t even allow you to have third party apps and change wallpaper.

      So you don’t jailbreak, why are you even reading jailbreak articles and looking at jailbreak videos?! You just wasted 5 to 10 minutes of your life when you could have been doing something you enjoy, 2 more minutes reading my comment and another 5 minutes thinking of something ugly to reply back to me. Now that’s pointless lol!!!

      • that’s 4 minutes you’ve had off me!!, i just read your post at the bottom :0)

      • Taterload

        Sorry lol I need to edit the time for how long it takes to read my comment, this one is only 5 secs.

      • Got me again #bastard

    • HeavyComponent

      So why keep up with it?

  • Chris

    Very simple and very useful especially on the lock screen where no hud appears.

  • sNick

    I tried it and deinstalled it afterwards.. this beep is very annoying. I thought it would be the beep of MAC OS when change volume.

  • Micky Ganon

    I tried it, very annoying

  • sadaN

    “Just like it DID work on Mac”, on Yosemite, in order to get the beep you must hold shift…

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Haha Wow.. Almost had you with the comment race! Or.. Wait I did beat you 😛

      • sadaN

        lol

      • sadaN

        Not really, my comment has been on longer than yours… 😀
        2 minutes to be more precise…

    • Actually you can turn the beep sound on. Just go to Settings>Sound.

  • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

    Very simular to Mac OS X before Yosemite. Every time you’d adjust the volume it makes that annoying chirp

  • Ruchir Purohit

    I can barely hear the beep even on the full volume…. something wrong?

  • Konijiro

    Does anyone know of a jailbreak tweak that would allow installing iPad apps on on an iPhone? I have a 6 plus, and there is this one game I love (iPad only). It’d be great to be able to play it on my 6 plus as well.

    • there used to be a program/app called iTelePad2Pod that could do that, it was even featured on idownloadblog, i don’t know if it would still work though

  • jp2002

    One of the many reasons I hate droid is because of this feature. Annoying beep. But again its my opinion and others are entitled to theirs.

  • When I had Android phones this was one of the things I switched off immediately so I’ll pass on this tweak, nice to have options there though

        Sorry posted it in the wrong spot but it was meant for THEPKSAY at the top of the post.

      • Eni

        I actually guessed that but just wanted to tease you lol

  • Alberto Espinal

    Imaging in a meeting trying to lower the volume! Lol
