Reclaim Productivity and Lose the Distractions with Time Ruler
Posted July 31, 2013 at 04:00 am by Will Verduzco
Let’s face it: Certain calls and texts are simply more important than others. And while your friends who enjoy sharing their latest ermahgerd may not realize it, you don’t always have the time for such diversion. So turn off your ringer, right? Wrong. By simply disabling your ringer and notification sounds, you’ll also miss those rare important messages.
To get past this limitation, XDA Forum Member ToddWigginsSoftware created an app called Time Ruler. This app allows you to enable a number of restrictions at certain times of your choosing. The main functions are to enable and disable the following functions: Ringer Type and Volume, Notifications, System Sounds, Alarms, Media, WiFi, Mobile Data, and Bluetooth.
In addition to setting rules such as enabling or disabling network connectivity and modifying ringer volumes during these times, you are able to set up three different groups of callers with white, grey, and black lists with regards to the call blocking function. People who are blacklisted are, as you would expect, blocked from calling you at all times, regardless of condition. Likewise, whitelisted individuals are immune from any restrictions at all times.
To give this a go and get back your productivity, head over to the application thread.
