Features:
-A front screen to quickly adjust the volume of your device as needed.

-Customizable audio profiles that can be used in a variety of ways. 2 types of Widgets, Android Wear, Notification widget.

-Volume lock can be used in the same way that audio profiles can.

-Triggers expand profiles to be automated via Location, Time, and System events.

Paid vs Free:
The paid version is the same as the free version except with the ability to toggle ads on or off. Ads default off in the paid version, but if you like the app consider enabling the ads. To transfer between the 2, use the Backup feature in the Free version and use the Restore feature in the Paid version.

Device Requirements:
This app is capable of working on devices with an API level of 9 and up or in other words Android 2.3 and up. Many features require newer versions of Android to work properly. The Vertical scrolling widget requires Android 3.0 and up while Android Wear support requires Android 4.3 and up. The notification widget requires Android 4.0 and up, but lower versions do have access to a single profile in the notification pane.

Permissions:
-android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS, Used to modify Audio setting as defined by user in app.
-android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS, Used for Ringtone management and other controls
-android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, Used for Locations
-android.permission.INTERNET, Used by ads only.
-android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE, Used by ads and the airplane mode trigger.
-android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE, Used for the backup/restore features.
-android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED, Used to start services that were on prior to shutdown(widget updater and Locations are examples).
-android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE, used to listen for phone calls to change volume levels when phone is unlinked from notification.

Libraries:
ActionBarShelock and HoloEveryWhereLib are the main ones used to maintain a similar UI across devices. I did not create these Libraries.

Privacy:
This app stores all information locally and does not use any internet access beyond what the advertisements use. The ads can be prevented from loading in the paid version thus preventing any internet access from this app.
