Why don't apps respond to silent switch?

    I have several apps, and not a single one of them will cut volume with the silent switch. I have to actually lower the volume, even though the phone is on vibrate.

    Is there a setting for this somewhere i'm missing, or is this how they work?

    It depends how the app is programmed, one or two for me respond to the silent switch, otherwise I just turn the volume down. No biggy.
