Review from Brandon Kampwerth
Stops working(Not turning the ring back on) after a week or two for both my wife and I. So pretty much worthless and my wife used the app first. She never use her battery optimization and why would the app work for a week or two then just stop after that? I find it unlikely that battery optimization kicks in after that long.Thanks
July 10, 2017My guess is you got an OS update that enabled the battery optimization functionality. This is not something you "use"; it's automatic; and apps like Shush will not get their alarms while the OS is "dozing".
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?
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.
After using the app for a couple of years tonight it quit working. 5 stars until it quit. I found that Shush had a software conflict with another app. The solution they gave me did not work. Shush would not turn on until I deleted the other app.
I've been using this app for four years and have had no complaints up until now. For some reason the timer started becoming triggered when another app turns off the media volume for select apps. This wouldn't really be an issue except for some reason this seems to conflict with the app volume control setting, causing the media volume to suddenly and without warning turn on.
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.
