You don't need an app to control them. When I answered to OP he asked if there was a way to control them all in one place, and that is what apps like Light Flow does.
To configure different notification tones go into the setting for the app. In the email app, goto settings, your email address, and you will see the option for notifications and you can choose a tone for email. For SMS, go into the messaging app, settings, and you will see a notifications option there where you can set the tone. Most apps that raise a notification have this option under settings, but some may be a little different.
I hope that clarifies it for you.
