    Hi all. I'm looking for a volume control app (or apps that work together) to

    1) Change volumes, vibrate etc at certain times
    2) Lock the volume slider (i'm fed up constantly changing the ringer vol)

    I have looked through loads of apps but haven't seen one that does both, and if I use 2 seperate programs they fight with each other.

    I'd prefer one with a widget but not a deal breaker

    Edit - should have said that I currently use Timeriffic for the volume settings/timing and Volume Locker for the locking.

    I'm not sure of an app which locks out the volume slider, but I use Sound Manager. I have various profiles set which alter/turn off the volume for anything I choose, at various points in the day, then back on afterwards. Its been reliable and simple to use.

    Since it doesn't have a lock function, it also doesn't have a widget, but everything else is automatic.

    Perhaps you can try emailing the dev, and suggest the inclusion of a lock option. I've emailed a dev before with such suggestions, and they've gone ahead and implemented them after agreeing.

    I use Tasker to manage my sound profiles based on certain parameters... (certain times, if I am plugged in or not, priority callers, gps location...) As far as I know of though, it does not have the option to lock out the volume buttons from making changes.
