Method and System for Automatically Controlling Volume of Mobile Devices Based On User-Selected Global Positioning System (GPS) Locations

Mobile phones (devices) can easily be tucked into pockets and purses of users that make the users to usually forget turning up/down the ring volume of the mobile phones. There is a need for method and system that can automatically control the volume of mobile phones for received notifications, based on identified user specific (desired) locations.

Disclosed is a method and system for automatically controlling volume of mobile devices based on user-selected Global Positioning System (GPS) locations. The method and system automatically adjusts volume levels of the mobile device for each of the notifications or alerts that are received, based on user selected (pre-tagged) locations. Pre-tagged locations can be such as, but not limited to, favorite location of the user, most visited locations of the user, home, gym, and tracked/saved locations by GPS sensors. GPS sensors continuously track and determine if the user is at specific pre-tagged locations and intelligently adjust (control) volume levels (high or low) of the mobile device.

In accordance with the method and system, a list of user specific pre-tagged locations
is displayed to the user such as, for example, library, hospital, church, temple, doctor's offices, etc. allowing the user to select one or more locations. Subsequently, a "volume/ adjust" button/icon is provided to...
