Control Your Smartphone Ringer Based on Your Calendar
Nothing’s quite as annoying or embarrassing as having your smartphone’s ringer go off in the middle of a meeting. OK, maybe there are a few things worse than forgetting to silence your phone, but showing off your Justin Bieber ringtone to your boss is something I would only wish upon my worst enemy.
Thankfully, Recognized Developer zevele created a fantastic app aimed at keeping your meetings untainted by the sounds of the Canadian popstar. The aptly titled application Ringer works by peering into your calendar to look for calendar events. It then disables your ringer during standard events.
You can configure Ringer to ignore certain event types. The latest version of Ringer even gives you information about your next meeting right from its toggle widget. You can also set the app to enable silent mode under certain device orientation conditions. However, it must be noted that this feature requires a partial wakelock and may take a noticeable hit on your battery life.
