Silence Your Phone Automatically with SmartSilence

I usually silence my phone during class, in the library, and when I sleep at night. This means every day I usually have to toggle on and off my phone about 6 times a day, which is okay. But then, I still often get some loud and nasty surprises which either draw a couple glares and scowls or wake me up during the middle of the night, all because I forgot to silence my phone and a spam email got through. This is, more likely than not, a situation that many of you folks experience as well, so wouldn’t it be great if there’s an app that could just do all that for you, no questions asked?

Well, XDA Forum Member AggieDev has developed a useful app called SmartSilence, which automates your silencing rituals based on schedules you set. A weekly schedule can be created, allowing you to define the days of the week, the start time and stop time you want your phone to be turned silent. You can also toggle a vibrating notification to mark the moment when the phone is turned silent. During the silenced period, a notification will pop up in the slide-down notification area, which can deactivate the currently active silence schedule. You can also toggle on and off schedules from the app’s main screen, which also shows all the schedules you’ve created, and the start/stop times and selected days that the schedules are set to be active during.

AggieDev has developed an app that will surely very useful for many smartphone users out there. It’s simple to use, easy to set up, and doesn’t interfere with any other activities you may need your phone for. It’s compatible with Android versions 2.0 and newer, ad-free and available free from the Play store. So if you would like to check it out, visit the original thread for more information.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
