    Yeah, I used it for a while. Had things working great, until I decided to be a dumba** and follow some instructions to fix the FB app so that there was sound with notifications. After that Pushtone got squirelly. I could activate it for one other app and it would shut off on FB. Turn it back on for FB and it shut off on the other app. So, I either had it working on one or the other and when it was working on FB I got notifications but no sound! Finally, I just uninstalled it and I get FB notifications now without it (with sound) and my other app works too. Unfortunately the FB app changed it's alert tone so while it does work, I don't get the nice pleasant tone it's supposed to use!!!!

    Anyway, if you search in the iPhone section the solution to fixing the FB app is there. Maybe you might want to try that route first.

    Thanks I had a setting on FB turned to only important notifications. Maybe the sound might work now.

    I liked this tweak simply because I hate the default push notification sound. Hoping it comes soon!

    Plus I like to be able to differentiate between which app is pushing a notification by setting each with its own sound.

    It does do what push tones did,,, just not as simple to use.

    I had the problem that the tone came always from the phone's loudspeaker even if it was connected to my Bluetooth headset.

    But the app itself is quite great, letting you choose not only a tone but also a custom vibration pattern. Also you can manage contact groups, unknown numbers etc.

    If he fixed the mentioned problem, I'll start using it again.

    I really like Ringer&Tones on my iPhone. The only flaw it comes with is it doesn't work on iPad. PushTone did this back on iOS6. So I'm still hoping to see PushTone updated to iOS7 soon.

    Isn't Ringer & Tones just the iOS 7 version of RingerX VIP?

    Is there something more to it? Because I use RingerX VIP and the featues only apply to contacts and groups, not apps.

    In Ringer&Tones you can apply individual ringtones, vibration pattern as well as rules whether to obey the general notification settings or not to apps, too. Brings some additional features to the RingerX on iOS6.

    Ringer&Tones is amazing, really. I can have my iPhone silent at all times and just configure when it should still ring, like calls, texts, etc.

    Yes, it's amazing, just like RingerX VIP (the iOS 6 version) was before it. I pair RingerX VIP with a App store app called Groups+. Since RingerX VIP can assign silence or tones to Groups, Groups+ lets you make Groups without having to sync with iTunes.

    If silence is your thing you might also look into Luna. Luna makes Do Not Disturb the way it should have been.
