Depending on how you use your iPhone, you might prefer to crank up the volume in certain apps and leave others at a lower volume level. Apple doesn’t provide volume-tuning of this magnitude in iOS out of the box, but with a jailbreak tweak called Volumizer by iOS developer SynnyG, you can have your cake and eat it too.
Volumizer brings beaucoup improvements to the iOS volume level experience, including per-app volume settings, improvements for landscape orientation, and more.
Upon installing Volumizer, users will find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where they can configure the tweak to fit their needs:
Here, you can:
- Toggle Volumizer on or off on demand
- Invert the volume buttons when in landscape mode
- Toggle a default volume level system-wide
- Allow the volume to reset after closing an app where a custom volume level has been set
- Configure a low volume level preset and assign it to specific apps
- Configure a mid low volume level preset and assign it to specific apps
- Configure a mid volume level preset and assign it to specific apps
- Configure a mid high volume level preset and assign it to specific apps
- Configure a high volume level preset and assign it to specific apps
What we really like about this tweak is the ability to configure a preferred volume level for specific apps. For example, you might generally listen to music at 50% volume, but only watch Facebook videos at 25% or less to prevent unwanted high volume outbursts in public. This tweak is tailored around such activities, but it also does so much more.
As for inverting the volume buttons, the tweak makes the volume down button turn the volume up and the volume up button turn the volume down when the handset is oriented in landscape mode. This only seems to make sense from a UI perspective, but things return to normal after the device has been oriented in portrait mode.
Volumizer is advertised to work with all jailbroken devices running iOS 7 through 13, and is available from the Packix repository for $0.99. If you’re looking to augment your handset’s volume-centric capabilities, then it’s hard to go wrong with such a tweak.
