Protect Your Beauty Sleep with Call Filter Alarm
Nobody likes to be disturbed from their beauty sleep. And let’s face it: Being woken up at 4am by your “BFF” ranting about how he or she just got dumped isn’t high on anyone’s priority list. However, silencing your phone at night may not always be the best idea because there may actually be a legitimate emergency. What if you could filter the calls that go through based on caller? Well, now you can do so easily, thanks to XDA Forum Member pizandroid and his latest application Call Filter Alarm.
Call Filter Alarm does exactly as you would assume based on its name. It filters calls based on time of day and caller. So how does it work? You first set the alarm. Then, you can optionally select who can call you. And once you’re ready to head to sleep, just enable sleep mode. If you’ve whitelisted certain callers, their calls and text messages will go through. However, callers not in the list will not disturb you.
Call Filter Alarm packs a few more tricks under its sleeves as well. You can set it to automatically activate and deactivate based on WiFi connectivity, personalize your sleep mode, have your alarm repeat every day, and more. If you’ve been looking for a clever way of making sure you aren’t disturbed from your beauty sleep, Call Filter Alarm may be up your alley.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
