No More Ringtone Surprises with Intelligent Ringer

You’re sitting in a quiet library, quaintly reading a pleasant novel while sipping some coffee. Then, your phone startles you, and everyone else, with it’s more often than not, embarrassing ringtone that you always forget to put on silent. People glare at you as your face turns red while you cheekily answer the phone with self-conscious whispers. Has that ever happened to you? Well, now you can avoid such situations with Intelligent Ringer.

Developed by XDA Forum Member soulreaver1, Intelligent Ringer aims to adjust the ringtone volume based on the amount of noise level of the environment the phone is in. It does this by analyzing the amount of sounds with the phone’s camera microphone and adjusting the ringtone volume down for when all’s quiet (such as a library), or higher during situations when it’ll be hard to hear the ringtone (i.e. a party). Users can adjust the sensitivity and accuracy of the microphone, the minimum and maximum volume, among other settings available. Intelligent Ringer also changes the volume when it detects the phone in your pocket thanks to the proximity sensor.

Soulreaver1 most definitely developed a very useful and practical app, which helps you avoid embarrassing situations and awkward moments. Intelligent Ringer is compatible with devices running Android versions 2.3 and newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if you’re interested and would like to know more, check out the original thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
