This ap is a great asset I'd be willing to pay for. However, Please fix: 1. be "quite" for this silent session - *quiet 2. there should be an easy way to hush the priority ring when it occurs. For example, your wife is a VIP and begins to text you in a meeting...repeatedly. There should be an easy/rapid way to hush all priority rings for 10 minutes; or for a user programmable period. "Be quiet for this silent session" fails to work ideally because you forget to initiate a new silent session and now all VIP calls for the rest of the day go unnoticed. It should be a time based event..."Be quiet for N minutes.", and should be easier to invoke. 3. there should be an emergency ring-thru code that works even if the phone is silenced and intentionally hushed. If it's an emergency, and a VIP texts you the agreed to (user programmed) password, the phone should go BERZERK at max volume, vibrating, and doing everything possible to be noticed. 4. VIP levels. If my wife is texting me (P2) and I hushed the phone for 10 minutes...then the care facility where my dad is housed (P1) is calling me to tell me he's had another stroke, I'd like the phone to ring through.
When a family member had a new baby, I wanted calls or texts from them (like; come over and keep baby company so I can sleep) to come through no matter what. But I wanted to be able to put the rest on silent. This works just like that. With my phone set to silent mode, even texts from those on my priority list ring out loud. Definitely an app for the parents of a teen or young adult away at school. Or anyone else who absolutely can't miss calls or texts from certain people. Oh, I have an LG G3 on Verizon. I haven't noticed any changes in other phone functions or sound settings. Sometimes if I am texting with someone in my priority list, the key sounds come through right at the beginning of me typing; as if the phone hadn't caught up with the volume settings information.
Would be perfect, but.... Please fix app so text notification of VIP callers does NOT come through. The priority calls come through which is great, but I don't want priority people's random texts at all hours of the night waking me up. If they really need me they'll call. The last app I used for this only let the calls through. It was great, but the developer stopped updating the app. I LOVED that app, so please fix this issue.
Does not work anymore! I agree with Strider Armstrong. This app doesn't work anymore. I have installed it three times on my Samsung GT-S5301 with Android 4.0.4, and even tried to reboot it in between, still doesn't work. Everything else in the app seems to work just fine but it simply doesn't enable the sound and ring signals for priority incoming calls and SMS. Will get 5 stars if/when it works as intended. Now I had to download a 2.2 megabyte app instead of this nice and lean 454k one. :(
Didn't work So I'm a relief teacher & i MUST answer this one call. I save it as a priority, the box is ticked, i have my phone on silent and surprise surprise the phone does NOT ring. Hey, but it told me i missed a priority call. Pfft. What a crock. Not happy. You cost me a lot of money today!!
Great app but some issues 1 - needs option to have texts or calls or both come through on vip list 2 - when the phone rings with a vip number, it rings once quick says missed call. Then continues same again. Then continues normal ringing. Then the app shows 5-6missed calls for the one call. Any thoughts why it is doing this? 3 - Would like the option to be able to quickly silence all vip calls for timeframe - maybe via a widget. If this was added this would be great! Keep up the support on this app. I would even purchase a paid version to help support.
