Shush! Ringer Restorer

25,615

When you turn your ringer off for a movie, meeting, meal, or nap, this app turns it back on afterwards.

It's activated when you silence your ringer using the volume buttons (or other means). You don't need to remember a special app! Just change the ringer mode to mute or vibrate, and it automatically pops up and asks you how long to stay silent. Never miss another important call.

Great for class, the office, movies and sleep.

Why does Shush! ask for camera permission?
Many camera apps silence the ringer during video recording, and it's disruptive for the Shush! dialog to pop up at that time. Therefore, when Shush! detects that the ringer has been silenced, it checks whether the phone's camera is currently in use; if so, it does not display its dialog. The permission is optional for Android 6+; if you don't give permission, then Shush! won't check whether the camera is in use (if you change your mind later, you can grant it in Settings -> Apps -> Shush! -> Permissions).

TROUBLESHOOTING

Android Pie (v9)
Android Pie changes the behavior of the volume up/down buttons - they now control the media volume, not the ringer volume/mode. To activate Shush!, press a volume button, then tap the ringer mode button on the screen (above the vertical slider). Also, due to a change in OS behavior, you should remove Shush's camera permission to ensure it pops up when it should (although this may cause interference w/video recordings).

Shush not restoring at the requested time?
Android versions 6+ (Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo) have a battery-saving feature that is activated when the device is idle for a period of time. In this mode, apps may not receive alarms they have registered with the system. If Shush! can't receive its alarm, it can't restore the volume at the time you requested. To resolve this, exclude Shush! from the battery optimization in Settings (exact steps vary for different devices).

Shush not popping up when you silence your phone?
After initial install, or if you have uninstalled/reinstalled, you must launch Shush! manually from the app drawer once, so that it can register with the Android OS to be notified of ringer mode changes.

Other
• MIUI 9 overrides the standard Android ringer mode logic, preventing the Shush pop-up dialog from appearing when you silence your phone.
• on Huawei devices, you must permit Shush to run while the screen is off and exclude it from battery protection. There are 4 steps to this: 1) launch the Shush app (for some of the following steps, the app needs to be running) 2) Go to Settings -> Advanced settings -> Battery Manager -> Protected apps, find Shush in the list off aps, and turn ON the switch. 3) Go to Settings -> Apps, find Shush in the list of apps, tap on it, tap Battery, then turn ON the switch for "run while screen off". 4) Go to Settings -> Apps, go to the Advanced screen by tapping the gear icon at the bottom of the screen, tap Ignore Battery Optimizations, select All Apps at the top of the screen, find Shush in the list and tap on it, then select the Allow radio button and tap OK.
• on Xiaomi Miui8 devices, when you use the volume down button, it lowers the volume to 0, but does not change the ringer mode to silent, which is what activates Shush! As a workaround, use a quick settings toggle to silence your ringer. Also, be sure to enable Shush! in the Autostart settings, see http://xiaomininja.com/2015/08/10/miui-tip-enable-autostart-to-never-miss-a-notification-again/
• on Asus ZenFone devices, there is a built-in app called Auto-Start Manager, which by default prevents apps installed from the Play Store from running unless they are started explicitly by the user. Since Shush! is started implicitly when you change the ringer mode, you need to configure Auto-Start Manager so that it allows Shush to run. See https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1013752.

What's New

15.3: Fix for interference with video recording apps. To detect when the camera is in use, camera permission is needed. This is optional in Android 6+, but if you don't give permission, Shush! can't tell that you're using the camera, and may pop up during video recording.
15.2: fix for failure to pop up on some devices. Temporarily removed camera permission and the associated check for "camera in use", as this was contributing to the problem. Will add the camera check back later.
