Focusbot: Mute Notifications, Autoreply, Focus

We live in a busy world.

World is full of interruptions and requests from other people who are begging for your attention. However, you may be unavailable to answer them or are focusing on tasks at hand such as working, studying, or driving.

Based on what you tell us about you, Focusbot will text back to a missed call and text messages. Focusbot will also mute app notifications.

● Key features
< 🔕 Mute notifications and view them later >
When focus mode is turned on, incoming notifications will be hidden from the notifications bar and stored in Focusbot to be viewable later.

< ğŸ“ž Autoreply to missed calls >
When you are unable to take the call, a text message will be sent back to the caller on your behalf. The text message will be composed intelligently based on your context, such as when you are in an event, while driving, when your device is silent, or when your phone is low on battery. By default, this feature only works on phone numbers saved on your device (User can change preferences in Settings).

< 💬 Autoreply to text messages >
People may text you for frequently asked questions such as where to send you an email, how to connect to your wifi, and where to send you a mail. If you choose to set up FAQ autoreply cards, a text message reply will be sent on your behalf if someone text messages you related to the FAQ. By default, this feature only works on phone numbers saved on your device (User can change preferences in Settings).

< 🏫 My focus area >
Focus mode is automatically turned on upon arriving at the location you set and turned off upon leaving.

< ⏱ Focus timer >
Optionally, set a timer for how long you want to stay focused.
