Stop Being The “Annoying Phone Guy” During Meetings With BusyMe for Android

Has it ever happened to you that you are in the middle of something and your phone just goes off? That usual call at midnight from telemarketers, which ends up waking up everyone in your house is about to become a thing of the past thanks to an app for Android developed by XDA member capitalf. BusyMe works hand in hand with Google calendar events and basically will instruct the phone to put itself in vibration mode during times where appointments are scheduled and will put the device back in normal mode once the meeting is over. The app can exclude certain events based on keywords as well, so don’t worry about your phone going on Vibrate because you have someone’s birthday in your calendar. It also features profiles to determine the action taken by the app, so it is rather complete and pretty much fool proof.

If you have used the app or if you are thinking about taking it for a spin, please leave some feedback.

Busy Me is a simple app that automatically sets your phone to vibrate during events on your Google Calendar and returns the ringer to normal afterwards. This is my first app and has helped me avoid being the “annoying phone guy” during meetings at work.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
