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.

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.

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.
