Galaxy Nexus low volume

I recently purchased an unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus on the play store and have been enjoying the change from iOS but the one thing thats really bugging me is the speaker volume is so low! I rarely hear when i get new text messages or calls unless I'm somewhere that is completely silent.

Does anyone know of a fix for this? I done some google searches for a fix or app, and I've read a few about Volume+ but the app itself states that it only works on Gingerbread.
