I'm looking for an Android application that can mute the sound notifications of all applications except one.

E.g. on Windows 7 I can do this in two clicks:

Windows 7 "Volume Mixer"

I use a Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1.2. Free is better.

    Good luck, Franck! I hope I'm proven wrong, but AFAIK that's not possible (i.e. currently no solution; it might be doable technically, though) on Android. While you have different channels (for e.g. ringtone, notifications, multimedia), I've never seen a way to mute or adjust volume on a per-app base. – Izzy Jul 31 '14 at 6:09

    Oh, am I permitted to prove myself wrong? Would something like App Volume be acceptable? Maybe PerApp could achieve that with a negative volume boost? Looks like AppConfig is exactly capable of what you need (but requires root). Just updating alternatives... – Izzy Jul 31 '14 at 9:49
  • Hi Franck. I know this question is a bit old (and I doubt you are still using an S3!), but did any of Izzy's suggestions wind up working? – RockPaperLizard Feb 23 at 20:52
