About this app

Don't let your phone interrupt you when it should be quiet. That's rude! With Polite, your phone will automatically go into silent mode (or vibrate mode) at the right times. You can choose specific times in your weekly schedule to automatically enter silent mode. You can also have your phone enter silent mode during calendar events in your calendar app. You can even enter keywords such as "meeting" and Polite will silence your phone whenever you have a calendar event with that keyword in the event title (e.g. "Meeting with manager"). It's time to teach your phone some manners!

Needs "exceptions" capacity. I wish it gave me more options about whether to use do not disturb or silencing features vibrate features etc. It's also hard to configure it to deal with multiple appointments at the same time. For example I don't want this to activate if I have an appointment called vacation. Even if there's another meeting at the same time.

Perfect for scheduled quiet times. I'm retired, so my use for this great app is less than it would have been during my working days. But I use it when I am in church or in small group meetings where I don't want my phone to ring and I can predict when that starts and ends. How many times have I put my phone on silent only to miss calls hours later because I forgot to turn my sound back on? This app is perfect for that prescheduled quiet time. It works exactly as described.

There was an app called "Auto Silent Mode" which is no longer available so I got this one instead. It's okay, some features I like on the other one: -There was a widget that allowed me to set a temporary silent or vibrate mode in increments of 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 1 hour. This was a great feature if I had to pop in to a meeting, after the allotted time I would get a small notification that the phone is back to normal mode. - The app overrode the manual setting so if I was in a scheduled silent mode and I turned the sound back on using the regular phone interface the app would turn it back off. This was a good feature because it ensured that I the schedule was followed and I didn't forget to turn it back off.
