    App to one touch silence notification while SOUND IS ALREADY PLAYING.

    Sorry for the Caps, but I asked this question a few months back, and all I got were apps to set up profiles. I could care less about those.

    I want a process running in the background that will allow me to silence an incoming notification (MMS, SMS, Email, FaceBook, Battery Low, Connected to computer, etc etc).

    Example: Sitting in surprise meeting, and forgot to silence my phone. If I were to get a phone call, I can mash the hard buttons through my pants, and the ringtone goes silent, just like that. I want that functionality for a notification sound. Say, somebody sends me a text message, and for that individual i have "Bye Bye Bye" from N'Sync as their ringtone.
    If that were to happen in the meeting, I would have to adjust, pull my giant phone out of my pocket, wake up the screen, unlock it, then pull down the notification bar. By the time I silenced the phone, the song would have through the second verse, and my reputation shattered.

    So, if theres any apps like that, I would love to know about them.

    Current phone Droid X with Liberty 1.0 ROM.

    Well, I believe there is a double tap screen to silent setting in the menu... And I think you can press the sleep button twice to silence it (one to turn on, one to turn off).

    I've also been looking at different threads for the same thing and it seems nobody has an answer for it. My blackberry's external buttons would silence everything but with the X its a hassle to make it stop. If there was an app to solve this, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. I use some pretty lengthy notification ringtones which are loud.

    Just hoping for an answer as well.

    Check out tasker. This app lets you build your own functions similar to what you are talking about. It is a very complicated app but the functionality is thru the roof. Let us know if you have any luck. Sounds like a very useful idea.

    go to market and get 'battery widget'

    allows independent silent, vibrate or audio.

    dont expect notification functionality like a blackberry from android ... maybe another app that can simulate notification profiles

    I dont know what this has to do with having the ability to mash any of the hard keys on my phone through my pants to silence a notification while its playing "Bye Bye Bye" in the middle of a meeting....?

    You can simply hit "volume down" on the side of your phone to silent the current incoming alert. However, it is only for the current call/alert and therefore not a permanent thing.

    That only works on phone calls.. If I get an email, or picture message, it continues to play
