I haven't looked into this too deeply, but it seems like it's trying to compensate for insecurely written code with a runtime check, rather than ensuring that the code is inherently secure by design.  Am I wrong?

I have Android 4.3 on a HTC One (Google edition).

Went to see a movie today at our local cinema, which takes anything which disturbs other movie watchers very seriously.  So of course I set my phone to vibrate mode.

Half way through the movie I feel my phone vibrating in my pocket, and to my horror, it starts making an extremely annoying noise.  I realize that it's a weekly alarm I had set up to remind me about something.

In a panic I get my phone out, but is it showing a screen that allows me to easily switch off the alarm?  Of course not, so I try turning the volume right down, but this has no effect on the volume of the alarm - people around me are staring at this point.

Eventually I pull down the notifications list and from there I can switch off the alarm.

Why on earth would my phone sound an alarm when it is in vibrate mode, and then make it far more cumbersome than it needs to be to switch the alarm off?

(Fortunately I didn't get kicked out, but I did feel like throwing my phone in the trash on my way out).
