Handy when your phone rings in the middle of class or a meeting!
* Mute phone with a slap on incoming call
* Silence custom notification sounds with a slap, too! (only works on 4.3 or higher, requires new permissions)
* Previous mode (silent, vibration, sound) is restored after call / notification rang out
* Automatically calibrates the sensitiveness on each incoming call, so that you don't miss calls while you are running, etc. (can be disabled)
* Automatically restarts when the phone is restarted, so you never have to remember to turn it on again after starting the phone
* Silencer stays enabled after update
By installing or upgrading the application, you agree to the following conditions:
This app is part of my personal research on technology & interruptions. The goal is to come up with novel ways of protecting phone users of unwanted phone calls.
To this end, the app will create an anonymous log for each call, including whether the call was accepted, silenced, or ignored, alongside contextual sensor data, such as the hour of the day or the maximum acceleration. The data will be only uploaded via WiFi, it won't drain your data plan budget! The data is intended to improve the application itself and to be used in scientific contexts. To be clear, your privacy is perfectly protected. NO personal information, such as phone numbers, will be stored. By the design of the data module, nobody, including myself, will ever be able to identify you or your call partners.
Please, keep sending me feedback, as this helps me to get the Silencer working like it should in this brief moment when you need it.
Compared with the same type of apps, "Flip Silent" is easy to understand and use, as long as you turn "Flip Silent" on, regardless the phone screen up or down, just flip it, the phone will become silent. Do not worry about missing calls.
Widget: Touch a simple button, you can turn Flip Silent on/off.
*Silent effect: when a call comes in, regardless the phone screen up or down, as long as you flip the phone, it would become silent.
* Automatic recovery: After the call ends, the phone ring will get back to the original settings.
