Looking for app to trap a system event

    I have a very annoying notification sound of a double car honk that only once and a while fires. I have so many apps on my phone that to deinstall them in groups, then wait forever to find if the problem is fixed is just not practical.

    So my question is, is there a background app that can monitor system events on Android phones, and trap a desired event, like a sound file being activated? I guess it might be the equivalent to SoftIce for Windows platforms.

    Hi, the major app that seems to make strange noises is mostly reported as the Peel Smart Remote app, try disabling that one. Phil

    Phil, thank you...I'll give that one a try. May be a awhile before I know if it worked or not.
