Reduce volume on iPhone/iPod touch games
Authored by: chrisrosa on Jul 30, '08 01:26:54PM

Using the hardware volume rocker switch to select the volume while a 3rd party app is active seems to set a volume level that applies to other applications.

I was bugged by this last night at a movie when I had the mute switch on. One would think this would apply to all sounds coming from the phone, but apparently is only the ringer and notifications. I even set the volume in Settings > Sounds, but just now noticed that's only for "Ring".

It's odd that there isn't a central volume control, but finding that the hardware volume control works will help.

The volume button on the iPhone controls the "device volume" I was talking about, but iPod touches don't have volume buttons.
