tl; dr: Great app design but it MUTES ALL my notification sounds................................................... I love the setup and interface of this app. It works consistently (vibrate patterns always work for notifications) but for some reason on my Pixel, it also mutes all the sounds for the notification regardless of whether my phone is on vibrate/loud. I've experimented a lot to try to troubleshoot this (notification settings, app settings, vibrons settings--mute on/off) and it seems like no matter what if Vibrons is enabled, then I won't hear any sounds so I'm guessing this is the intended behavior. This is a bummer because I'd really like to still hear notification sounds (when not in vibrate mode) and use custom notifications from vibrons. EDIT: Thanks so much for your effort (added a star). Unfortunately, I'm still experiencing the same issue. Surprisingly, it seems that as long as Vibrons has Notification Access, all my notification sounds are muted (even ones that I've not added in Vibrons)... I should note that I'm running an old version of android (v8.1.0)

Hi James. I uploaded a new version of the app. v1.1.0. Could you try and see if it works for you now?
Same as others. It disables the audio sound on all notifications, particularly the phone ringer. Only was to have both is to force stop the Vibrons app. Somehow vibration patterns remain but the ringer is restored. but only for as long as the app is force stopped. everytime you re intialise the phone ringer is lost again Shame....it is otherwise a good app.

I use this app for on call work throughout the night. I set long vibration patterns so notifications can wake me up. One problem is the app knocks off all notification audio. This app shouldn't have to do that. I have to go into Settings > Apps > Special Access > Notification Access to disable off Vibrons so that I can hear notifications through the day. If Notification Access is off and you open the App, the app brings you to that menu to enable it. This should at least be a button in the app.
