About this app

This app disables the increasing/ascending ring volume on your phone. This way you won't miss the first couple of seconds of your ringtone. You can also boost the ring volume for the first several seconds.
Just start the app once, and leave it running in the background so it can adjust the ring volume.

You have 10 days trial period to determine if you like the app, and purchase a license for it. After the trial period, the app will stop functioning.

Android 6 and 7 users - you need to turn off battery optimization for the app from phone's Settings>Battery>the three dots at the top right corner>Battery Optimization>All apps>Disable Increasing Ring>Don't optimize

If the app doesn't work after you install it, try again by selecting the "New normalization method" checkbox. You can use the volume boost sliders to boost the ring volume for the first X milliseconds, at the level you think matches the increased ring volume. (these sliders are available only for Android 4.4 and up)

The notification message is required by Android so the app won't be killed. Do not hide the notification, because Android will stop the app.

Please write a comment whether the app works for you or not, so we can make a list of all devices it works on.

Check out our new app that allows you to turn on your flashlight with double-click on the power button. To turn it off, just put the phone in your pocket.

Unfortunately this didn't work with my Moto G5 Plus running Android 8.1.0. The volume started high, then dipped back to zero after a second, and escalated as it would have without the app. I wish the developer well, and hope they continue to improve this app for users. A side issue; I wasn't fond of having a permanent notification bar for this app on my screen. Not a big deal (and probably unavoidable), just a matter of personal taste.

I have a Motorola Moto G6, it is well worth $.99 to get rid of the ascending ringtones. A little glitchy at first, but here is the setup that worked for me. Free version did not work for me, for a buck, I took a chance and paid to get license. Activate app, uncheck "New Normalization Method", select "Show notification icon" (this actually took several hours before it appeared after re-starting phone and would not work without it). This app is great once past the fustrating setup.

Update 7/3/2022 After the latest Android 12 update, this doesn't continue running in the background. And I cannot buy the license; I get an error from the Google Play Store and the transaction fails. End Update. Works perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy A42 5G phone. The ascending ringtone meant that I was always missing calls. With the phone in a case on my belt and inside my coat, it usually would ring 3 times before I heard it ringing. By the time got to the phone, the caller would hang up.
