it works every now and then but often it just opens the app asking for allowances and doesn't actually mute anything. It would also be nice to tap once to mute and tap again to restore all sounds to the phone. Right now I have to do it all manually. Makes the app pretty pointless but with potential of being useful
Great App... used it with BxActions to remap the Bixby button (Galaxy S8) to this app. Works great. When I push button, it Mutes and when I push again, it goes to whatever sound setting it had (vibrate or ring). However, what would be more useful is an app (not Widget) that toggles between vibrate and sound. The vibrate mode is considered a subset of mute. All people in my organization put the phones on vibrate (not mute) when in meetings. I searched and searched but could not find an app that performed this function. Only Widgets. The problem with Widgets is that they cannot be used by utilities that seek to remap functions.
Great app, I use it all of the time, but it has one issue with the widget I cannot resolve. When I use the widget on the home screen it will work once or twice and then will no longer function. I find that the widget fails after the phone is woken up from sleep. If I go directly to the app it will work fine and toggle the mute on and off as expected.. I would like to use the widget as it indicates red or green to show muted or not muted. I'm running Android M 6.0.1 with Nova Launcher Prime. I keep thinking the widget issue has something to do with compatibility and Nova Launcher. I have tried re-installing Mute, re-installing Nova and done a factory reset on my phone, but I continue to have the same issue with the widget. Anyway thanks for the nice Mute app! For the most part it works great. Maybe someday the small issue with the widget will get resolved.
It is a mute function. Works exactly as you would expect! Functions as a toggle switch! Mutes volume and restores volume to previous setting. Kudos! If you want a volume control, look elsewhere.
Very handy Unlike the built-in mute function of my phone, this goes straight to mute (no toggling through vibrate first), and it mutes EVERYTHING, including device sounds and the audio of embedded videos. I just wish I could launch it from the lockscreen.
You just have to tap the icon and it will mute all the aspects of your phone (except for alarms). Exactly what I wanted.
App size dramatically reduced, save memory on your phone. Works with Nougat.
Removed unnecessary permissions.
