you can allways use third party apps. most of them have custom settings for changing led and sound. like k9 mail.
not sure about the cnn app have u check the app settings.
My default email app has a setting for the notification sound.
-Go into Settings
-Click on your email address
-Scroll down to the "Notification settings" section
-The "Select Ringtone" option lets you pick the ringtone to use
GMail App has it too:
-Go into Settings
-Click your email address
-Second option is to turn on email notifications
-Once that is selected "Ringtone & vibrate" turns on below it.
-"Ringtone & vibrate" has the Ringtone option to pick the ringtone you want.
Do I have different email programs than everyone else?
You can change the default app notification sound for any application and the way it notifies you.
I installed it, and it lets me give a notification sound to apps by checking them, but they are all the system default notification sound. It does not seem to have a way to specify a different sound for each app. What am I missing?
You can go into menu settings where you check off all the apps you want to be notified of. Click on the app you checked and there should be SOUND SETTINGS where you can change the default sound to whatever you would like.
It is the "ringtone" I want to change? Only available in the paid version. Not that I have an issue paying the mere pittance of the price, but I ganerally like to see software actually work. Still, for the price of tea with dinner, it isn't a bad risk. I'm splurging.
I am still rather new to Android so I am not certain of everything, but I would suspect that most programs that send out notifications allow you to go into their menu and change the sound. You might also be able to do it just from the SOUND configuration under Android's general settings.
Let me know how you make out. Very interested to see if you get it to work as you wish.
Notifier Pro Plus (paid version, not Notifier Pro - free version) does allow you to pick any installed app and set a notification for it. If the app has it's own notification, it plays both, unless you turn off the app's notification. For apps that either have no notification, or do not allow you to change the notification tone, Notifier Pro Plus allows you to set any app with any notification you have available.
I have installed Zedge, which has TONS of free ringtones and notifications. However, it does not have some of the things that I wanted to be able to really customize the ringtones I wanted for certain people.
I have also installed Ringtone Maker. This little app allows me to take any sound file, edit it to only have the exact sounds I want, amplify it to be loud enough to be heard, and save it for access by an app or Notifier Plus Pro.
So, I have made a couple of notifications & ring tones that I really like. For example, when someone calls that is in my address book, it plays a few loud guitar riffs from a Chuck Berry tune. When my girlfriend calls, it plays the opening vocal from James Taylor's "Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself, because I love you!" When my ex-wife calls, it plays the Mission Impossible Theme. When my Doctors call, it plays a siren. My lawyer's calls are announced with the opening bars from Pink Floyd's "Money." Family calls are announced with the Pointer Sisters singing "We are family." My sms messages are announced with the whistle from the Old Spice commercial (downloaded from Zedge). Facebook messages have another whistle notification. Breaking News from CNN & USA Today are announced by a few notes from one of those "breaking news" tunes you hear on TV or the radio.
I have managed to set up all my communications so that I recognize the source without having to look at my phone, and THAT is exactly what I wanted. So, I heartily recommend Notifier Pro Plus as the path to setting a ready tone for any app, Zedge for downloading tons of ringtones and notifications, and Ringtone Maker for tweaking any sound file to fit the length and volume you want.
