Do you want more control over the volume levels on your iPhone or iPad ? If you do and your device is jailbroken, you should take a look at a brand new jailbreak tweak called VolumePanel. This tweak allows you to set volume levels for each individual app that is installed on your device, instead of having just one volume control for all.

Features of VolumePanel :
VolumePanel is quite a comprehensive tweak, containing lots of features including:
- The ability to set a volume control on a per-app basis
- Helpful for those who use headphones with certain apps, with the ability to configure a specific app with a lower volume control
- Helpful for those who share content with a person sitting beside them, allowing you to set the controls for the particular media app you are using
- You can set the volume controls independently for all different apps on your device, be they stock apps, from the iOS app store, even those downloaded from Cydia
- Uses Activator actions to involve the user interface
How Does VolumePanel Work ?
VolumePanel can be used in two different ways. First, you can use an Activator action to open the interface whenever you want to. Second, there is a button added to the media controls section in the Control center. The interface is nothing but the VolumePanel interface but when you use the button in the Control Center, you can do quite a bit. The VolumePanel button lets you show and hide the controls for each of the apps installed on your device. The volume controls can easily be changed just by tapping and dragging the individual controls and you can tap left and right to scroll through all the apps that are recognized by VolumePanel on your iOS device, setting controls for each one individually.
How to Configure VolumePanel :
When you download VolumePanel, you get a Preferences plane in your Setting app. This is where you can configure the tweak to work how you want it to, including:
- Being able to enable and disable the tweak at will
- Choosing where the app volume toggle button is going to be located in the Control Center
- Giving the volume sliders colors that are based on the actual app icon colors
- Making the volume unified between the headphones and the speaker
- Showing all of your apps in the interface and not just the that you used recently
- Choosing the Activator action to show the interface
- Respring to save changes
VolumePanel is a neat tweak, giving you way more control over your volumes than Apple provides and supporting all apps, not just the stock ones or Cydia ones. If you want to give VolumePanel a go, download it from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for just $1.49 but bear in mind that it will only work on the iPod Touch and the iPhone, not the iPad at the moment. It also works with both iOS 8 and iOS 9, both of which can be jailbroken. Free download of this app is also possible via 3rd party repo sources.
