Silence Schedules Your Android Ringer Mode and Settings

What makes smartphones truly smart isn’t the ability to access information whenever we need, but rather how they can make certain decisions for us so that we don’t have to. We have seen several apps for Android like Tasker and Locale that help automate the things we do based on schedule, location, or other parameters. But if you want a simple way of only changing the ringer, these apps can be overkill. That’s where Silence comes in handy.

Brought to us by XDA Forum Member skmpowdjy, Silence is a completely free app with a good Holo UI design aesthetic. The app allows you to specify a schedule for your ringer mode, as well as toggle your WiFi, Bluetooth or Airplane Mode. You can also specify to set everything back the way it was after the scheduled time slot.

You can learn more about the app and find its Google Play Store link in the forum thread.

Design Woes: Can We Get What We Want?

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
