Review from Craig Allin
Loved it when it worked. But ring restore quit working a couple of Android updates back and continues not to work with current software release from Verizon for my Galaxy S7: G930VVRS4BQH1
September 7, 2017Android has a battery-saving feature which prevents apps from receiving alarms when the device is idle for a period of time. If Shush can't receive its alarm, it can't restore the volume at the requested time. To resolve this, exclude Shush from battery optimizations settings (see "Unmonitored Apps" at the bottom of the Settings screen).
I love this app!!! My old phone Moto E2nd Gen had the ability to turn off the sound for a set amount of time. Now this app gives me that option once again just by turning the sound off. It opens a window and asks me when I want it to turn back on. I've tried so many other apps. All of the others were quirky and required a lot of programming. I am giving this app 5 stars!!!
This has always been my very favorite app to use. It still works great, except now the volume does not turn back up when the number of hours I have shushed it are over. I forget to look and find I am missing calls because there is no volume on my phone. Any help with this?
Used to work great, and I got very used to using it all the time for work and going out to places like movies. But it doesn't always work now. It frequently doesn't turn the volume back on, and I will still have a bar in the notifications that says the time it's supposed to turn it back on, even though it's hours past that time.
For some daft reason Android 8 (oreo) has left this facility out! Have reinstalled shush on pixel. Looks like it works ok . . . Previously found it easy to use on android 4. Means you can be confident about turning ringer off as you know it'll turn on again at appropriate time.
Loved it, but now causes Perfectly Clear app to not work on Galaxy 5. Let's get together with those guys and get it fixed! No excuse for this conflict. UPDATE: Fizz Buzz responded, admitted the problem and kept me posted on the fix. The latest version works great. Very impressed with the company and their app.
Very useful well designed app. I've been using it forever. I'm now on android 7, and Shush hadn't been turning back on. The battery optimization hack from Fizz Buzz solved the problem. Working again! Props!👍 Oh, if you've had an OS upgrade, and Shush stopped working after that, READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE COMMENTING.
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.
