Sound effects in app

I’m developing an app and have been thinking about adding some minor sound effects to it. Its not a game, so my question is is if it’s just a crappy idea and should I just scrap it? And if I were add it would I also need to add some kind of mute button/option or setting?

I’d say it’s uncommon to have sound effects in non-game apps, but not unprecedented. I remember certain apps like some from Tapbots adding sound effects to provide feedback for their user interface controls, etc. and make it a bit more fun. I personally quite like apps that do this, if the sound effects fit nicely.

But yes, I think adding a mute option somewhere would be appreciated by folks who might find the sound effects annoying.

Anyway just my 2c!
