Stub.pngStub: This article is a stub - an "empty" article that has been requested by another wiki user.

You can help by extending the article, or by adding comments which provide part of the information required.

Suggestions for content: This article only includes a subset of reasonable design guidance. I suggest adding a number of sections and populating each section by area. Also providing links to platform specific design guidance.

  • The audio level of the application should be in sync with the selected profile.
