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!

Good and love the ability to use calendar events for silencing, but the biggest drawback here is it is missing a "quick quiet" option. There needs to be a widget or at least a way in the app itself that you can manually and quickly silence your phone temporarily with the option to set the length of time for it to stay silent before automatically returning the phone to sound mode.

I found this app after getting a new phone and not having the similar app I previously had for this available. This app works as intended, for me this means not having notification interruptions during work hours. The only downside is it doesn't silence your media volume along with the notifications. Would love to see that feature added as it tends to be annoying when watching a quick YouTube clip thinking the volume is safe but instead end up playing it for the whole office haha.

Thanks for the feedback Sean. I think this will be the next feature that I add since you are not the first to request it.

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.
