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.

If you had asked me for this two years ago, I would have raved about this app. This app Turned off sound and turned it back on at my chosen time. No more forgetting to turn my ringer back on after meetings and the like. But now with a newer phone (Galaxy 22), it doesn't function. I tried writing to the developer for assistance or even an update, but got no response. I am both sad and frustrated. I loved the ease of this app and how it eased my burden of functionality. Now I have to manually do

on my pixel 6 phone, each time I use this and then sound is restored, the ring notification volume is reduced slightly. so if I use it several times, eventually the ring and notification volume remains at zero.

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.
