Looking for an Android volume scheduler so I can automatically set my alarm volume to 30% during the day (so I don’t startle people) and 100% at night (so I actually wake up!). I’m seeing a lot of very full-featured volume schedulers that want permissions to everything but Play Store doesn’t give me the option to search by number of permissions required, ascending, so that I can optimize my search. So #lazyweb it is!
I found https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=netroken.android.persistalternate and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=polis.app.volumecontrol.pro and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=Orion.Soft but they all want lots of permissions. I don’t think any of them are asking for illegitimate permissions given their function; I just don’t like giving so many permissions away if I can help it. I don’t mind buying an app; I’d rather not have network permissions for a simple volume scheduler…

I used to use Timeriffic but it’s abandoned and does not work on Nougat. It’s the only one that shows up on my f-droid searches so looking on f-droid isn’t helping me avoid an adware deluge either.

Termux does not have anything quite like this, but it has an extensive set of Android-API interactions. Perhaps volume control could be added to that set?

Huh. That’s something I hadn’t considered.

+Michael K Johnson Termux is the best damned thing I’ve had happen to me on Android. Not that that’s saying much, but the experience is still pretty good.
If it doesn’t offer you the tools, there may be other CLI/terminal environments which do.
I’ve been hiving off a bunch of stuff from apps into Termux packages and scripts. mps, mpv, and mps-youtube cover a lot of ground as well.
I’m disappointed that Pandoc doesn’t make it (the TeTeX packages would be … a significant undertaking to port).
