    Is there an app that will let me set different sounds based on what application is giving me a notification?

    Having one sound for everything has we checking my phone 300 times a day :)

    Try the free version of Light Flow. It can change the notification sounds based on the type of notification, who it is from and much more. You can also set how often it beeps a reminder and for how long. Not to mention, you can do the same for vibrations.

    The paid version gives you the ability to notify from a wider variety of apps.

    Agreed, LightFlow is great. Plus if there is an app that isn't listed on LightFlow just email the dev, it will get added :thumb:

    +1 for Lightflow. It will give you control of both LED as well as audible notifications on an app-by-app basis. You can't go wrong dropping the dollar or two on it OP.

    Alternatively you can just set different notification sounds though the settings of each app concerned.

    Not always, ESPN ScoreCenter for example has no way to change the sound. There are a few other I use also.

    Plus you can backup LightFlow settings in app. So if you factory reset a phone after you re install all the apps you can set all your notification sounds back just by restoring light flow instead of going through all your apps.

    +1 on Light Flow here as well. Besides all the things listed above about this great program, you can also set several different volumes for the sound notifications like fixed volume, or volume relative to your main volume. I found this helpful because some notification tones are loud and some are soft. Now I don't even have to pull my phone out of my pocket to know what notification I just received. Light Flow is probably the best program I've put on my Android.

    Fair enough - never come across any myself.
