Would it be possible to add location support too? I want to schedule silence for my work hours, but only if I'm actually at the office (which can also be expressed as "connected to work wifi"), so if I have a day off or I take 2h off in the middle of the day for an important errand, I can hear my calls. I understand that it's a fairly complex request, especially in terms of making the UI comprehensible, but it'd make it so much more useful for me.

I do have some ideas how the UI could be structured without making it impossible to understand, if you want to hear it. It's also helped by the fact the app doesn't presume to know when my "day" and "night" hours are (thank you!), and asks me instead, so it's a fairly natural addition.

Hi +Maciej Katafiasz, I have at one point started working on this feature but haven't developed it far enough to be ready for user testing. I hope to come back to it soon. Email me at caboosesw@gmail.com if you want to discuss further. Thanks

Hello! I've been using your Do Not Disturb app on Lollipop and it's great :D I'm having a problem though, I think it is a bug.

When night mode turns on due to a schedule, the volume lowers and my phone doesn't ring; Silence mode turns on. But, when I press a volume button Lollipop's Silence mode turns off, and even though the Do Not Disturb notification is still there, Silence mode is off and notifications make my phone ring.

This only happens on my Moto G; tapping a volume button on my Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet while in night mode shows that the phone is currently on Silence "indefinitely"; I think this is a more desirable behavior, because if I accidentaly tap a volume button at night, Do Not Disturb will not turn off by mistake.

All of the Do Not Disturb and Priority Mode settings are exactly the same on my Moto G 1st gen and on my Xperia Tablet, so I'm not sure of what is going on. Please help me! Thanks!

Ok, that sounds fair :) Actually I got this app called SoundHUD, that lets me lock the volume keys to just the music volume, so pressing them doesn't change the ringer and thus your app keeps working. Best combo ever! Thanks for such a great app :)

No difference during the first 3 weeks. After that whitelist, sms auto-response, cancel and calendar time adjustments will be disabled.

sure, use the calendar. Add whatever schedule you wish to google calendar, and the app will follow it.

Hi +Andreas Wieneke​, you can have a different schedule for each day, but only 2 fixed per day. If you need more, please use google calendar to enter it, and the app will follow.

Please add the possibility of application to start automatically when you turn the ringer off. Great applications use the paid version to support the author

Please excuse my English Google translation

Thanks to Karel

I'm not a fan of Google's redesigned, lack-of-customize "Priority mode" on Lollipop. This app just work as advertised on my Nexus 4. Kudos to the dev!
Q1: Can I disable WiFi on day mode as I'm using data on my office. 
Q2: Any plan to apply the latest Material Design on this app?

Thanks +Terrence T! It's not possible to disable Wifi during the day, unless you do it manually. As to Material Design, it's not an easy change to make and I've been too busy lately to tackle it. But it's on the todo list.

Really like the free version, so I upgraded to the premium version.
Only issue I'm having is that the phone does not not come out of mute.
That is, after a schedule ends, the phone does not unmute.
Any suggestions ?

Hi +Ed Brown, if you're sure that my app's speaker icon goes away on time in the morning, then the issue is not related to the task getting killed.

What phone do you use? Do you know if only notifications volume remains low or if other volumes are affected as well? I assume that opening the app when this happens doesn't force the channel to be unmuted.

Try this. Next time it happens, please capture the log file shortly after the issue is observed and forward me it to me. Here is how to generate the log:

1. Enable Developer settings by tapping 6 times on the Build info in System Settings/About Phone menu,
2. Go to Developer settings menu and enable USB debug. 
3. Generate the bug report from Developer settings, and forward it to caboozesw@gmail.com.

Thanks,

-Ben

Last week you had a higher version 3.0.0. Upon last update the download offered only an older version of 2.9.8. This older version does not run on lg vigor with lollipop.

It literally would not start at scheduled time or keep running at DND now. I uninstalled, reinstalled and it worked. As it turns out I think this is just an android issue and nothing to do with your app. Thanks.

The app would jack up the ring volume to the highest after silencing instead of restoring the volume to the previous level before the silencing. Is there a fix to that?

Does it work with notifications from other apps like Viber or Gmail. Can you add apps to a white list? Thanks.

It's pity that some of the big vendors try to "enhance" the Android settings with their own "value added" features. In my experience their "added value" is only getting in the way, and doesn't work well enough anyway. Samsung is particularly bad at it, in my opinion.

Hey +Ben D 

Have a few feedback…
1) Any possibility to add feature to decline non-whitelisted callers immediately? That's the behaviour in iOS, and people are more likely to immediately/notice something is off, and retry calling again than being sent to a voicemail. 
2) Can you suppress calls/notifications from waking the screen up while a profile/schedule is running? 
3) On that Detect Ringer Mode changes, correct me if I am wrong… the timer window only shows up when I switch modes from normal to silent, and then I tap a notification item before the timer pop-up show up. Is that the expected behaviour? I was under the impression the timer window would show up as soon as I hit vibrate or silent mode; and then it would also prevent me from accidentally exiting vibrate/silent mode. 

Thanks for keeping the app up-to-date for L despite the shortcomings in L's sound profile modes; I'm looking forward to trying out this on L as soon as the update hits my phone.

Sorry +Evan Hindra​, don't know how I missed your post earlier. There is no supported way to reject calls on Android. Its also not possible to keep the screen from waking up. I'm still experimenting with automatic timer, expect more changes soon.

Thanks

I bought premium version & it works well with lollipop. One thing is that the ringer is always on. I would like it to vibrate only...is that possible?

Yes... For example if I have it set for starred contacts calls to only be allowed to come through, I don't want my starred contacts to ring; I want my starred contacts to vibrate only when they call/text me.
