    I can't find it in Ringdroid, and haven't found any other music editing apps.

    One of my hobbies is deejaying and I prefer to use an MP3 file at 320kbps instead of WAV to save a little disk space. You might try bumping your music files up to 256 or 320kbps. If you are using 128kbps or less, you should notice a change in how loud it is. I can tell a different. I used to put 128kbps songs on my phone a long time ago, but I could hardly hear them when I mowed the grass. Listening to 256 and 320 was much louder and I could hear it over the mower's engine.

    Sound Forge, raise the volume of the file.

    I would think any audio editing program is able to raise the bitrate to something more than 128, or am I totally off on this..?

    get "audacity" from soundforge. you can take your mp3 files, and increase the volume on them and re-save the files. However watch the signal spectrum because if you let the signal reach the top of the little graphic it will be "clipping" in other words too loud to where it causes distortion.

    Isn't bitrate completely different than volume?

    I'm trying to find a volume editing app which I can run on my Incredible (not a computer program).

    Are there none?

    I forgot about mentioning Audacity and MP3Gain. I'm using the MP3Gain to level out all my music files so when I mix, they all are very close to the same sound output and don't have to adjust the Gain knobs on my mixer. I'm also using Switch Sound File Converter to raise and lower bitrates.
