About this app

Never again miss an important call because you forgot the ringer off.

Turn your phone on silent mode for a period of time.
When you silence your phone by using the volume buttons you'll be able to tell when the ringer will be back on.

Useful when going to a movie, attending a meeting or when sleeping. Simply set the phone to automatically come out of the silent mode afterwards.

- extremely intuitive and easy to use
- can be launched by using the volume buttons
- silence for a given period or until a given time
- possibility to put the phone in silent mode indefinitely

Silence your phone for a while!
Don't miss calls anymore. Let the app remember when to go out of silent mode.

Permissions explained:
- GET_TASKS (retrieve running apps): In specific scenarios some applications are intentionally muting the ringer. Silent Mode needs to know if those applications are running so it's not interfering with them.

Works great on my Note 9. I just use the volume down button until it gets to vibrate. Silent Mode then pops up and asks how long to keep the phone silent. I set the time I want it to come back on then hit "silent for a while". At the time I set the ringer turns back on. Can't get much simpler than that.

After learning curve the interface is very functional. This function of control by number of 15 minute increments of silence will likely be added to future android versions. Until then this app does not present advertisements and functions perfectly well on my Samsung S8. This app is so good that I wanted to explore and paid upgrade.

Nice easy-to-use interface. Have used it for 5 months now. It seems to have stopped turning sound back on after the set time (unless it never did and I just didn't notice). Now it only turns sound back on when you reopen the app. That makes it useless. Contacted the dev 12 days ago - no response yet. Now trying alternatives.
