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.

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.

Works consistently without any issues. This is great to see your work hours and have your phone automatically go to silent when you are at work. The best part is it comes back on after the time you set. I would always forget to turn my sounds back on after work and I would miss calls and messages but now it turns back on automatically. I think it's great.
