    I am looking for an app, to make notification silent, just the Notification - nothing else.

    But now (I think form ICS onwards) the Notification volume and Ringtone volume are the same and changing one changes the other.

    I have started looking at sound profile apps and some claim to separate the volumes again , some don't, some say yes but the review suggest different and some say yes then when you install / run it they say this feature no longer works.

    So really looking for any advice on good apps.

    N.B, it is ONLY the Notification tone I want to make SILENT, so an app that turns only that volume to zero or "fakes" it by loading a silent ringtone to the notification (definitely gmail and probably SMS too). Don't care about multiple profiles, location or network based switching of profile. Maybe would use time / day scheduling but really would prefer an app that silences the notification when running and stop it to go back to normal.

    That app works and does just what I want.

    Even though the name is Seer (Silence Everything Except Ringer) on my Nexus 4 is just silences the Notifications even though the full silence icons appear in the notification area and the volume slider.

    It is free with ads but with a widget and a schedule option once its set up there is no need to reopen the app and see the ads.
