Silence Notifications While Listening to Music with Don’t Pause
If you are a music maniac, you’re more than likely annoyed when you receive pointless notifications like “Your troops are ready for battle” or “eagleeyetom mentioned you at XDA-Developers.” This can be especially annoying while you are listening to the music. XDA offers thousands of applications that can enable or disable some features, so those pesky notifications aren’t anything special.
XDA Forum Member tpierce89 tried to find an application in order to allow his Android-using family to disable notification sounds during music playback. But due to a lack of luck in the search, he ended up creating his own application, and that’s how Don’t Pause was born.
The application is very easy to use, and offers what’s expected from it. While playing music, Don’t Pause puts notifications in silent mode, so that music is no longer silenced when a notification arrives. It has two modes, where notifications are disabled or enabled. This is useful when you are listening to your music in random places like the bus or while you’re taking a nap. In other words, with Don’t Pause, notifications only make a sound when convenient for you.
You can learn more about the application and see it in action by visiting the original thread.
