Mute Your Phone and Restore Volume Automatically

Picture the scenario – you have a meeting so you put your phone in silent mode.  You leave the meeting and go about your daily work.  Later when you get home, you realise you have 100 missed calls from your girlfriend/boyfriend and some irate text messages.

We’ve all done it – forgotten to turn up the volume on your Windows Mobile device.

XDA member thx1200 has the answer to all your problems – well this one anyway.  Thx1200 has developed Mute4 – a simple application that allows you to set your phone to vibrate or silent, and then also set a timeout for when you want to restore the original volume profile via the system timer.  The app includes default timeouts of 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, and 3 hours. However, Mute4 also lets you set custom timeouts by editing the settings.ini file.

Mute4 is compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0, 6.0 and 6.5.

To download the cab, and information on the source code, check out the application thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
