What happened with Busy Me? It doesn't appear on Play Store anymore? I loved this app!

I would like to know the same thing.  I have spent numerous hours searching for an app that does exactly what this one does, which I think should be a standard phone feature.

After updating to Android 5.0 Busy me doesn't switch on sound when a calendar event has ended. Or it switches on sounds hours after the event has ended. (Nexus 4)

I have been using this software for about a year. I use just the basic ringer off for a calendar event and it works very well. I haven't tried any keyword things because of stuff I have read at google play.
I always support software that I actually use and I have been using this one. Is there a paid version of it?

I don't think there is a paid version, but this is best DND app I've used. Hopefully it's working great for you too...

Hey all, I just downloaded and have been trying out Busy Me for a little while, and I'm impressed with it so far, but I think it would be improved by allowing keywords to occur in the description rather than just the event title. Also, I wonder if it would be possible to include other actions based on different keywords, like wifi state, gps, flight mode, etc.

Also, I wonder what would happen if Busy Me sets a state, such as vibration, and then you delete the event. Would it remain in that state until the user manually sets it? I suppose the trigger is the closure of the event, rather than the vibration/silent status being set 'while' an event was current.

"I wonder what would happen if ... you delete the event."
Busy Me checks if an event is occurring at the "current" time--essentially ignoring start and end times. If you delete an event from your phone's Calendar app during the event, your phone will be restored your ringer at the next 5 minute check (unless your settings say to never turn the ringer back on). If you delete from the calendar.google.com website, there could be a delay in that being synced to your phone's calendar.

"...include other actions based on different keywords, like wifi state, gps, flight mode, etc."
While I plan to do things like auto-reply to calls and texts, prompt to return ringer to normal after a set time when you manually turn your ringer off, etc, I don't intend to make Busy Me a full settings manager. There are apps of apps like Locale and Tasker that already do a good job at that.

"...allowing keywords to occur in the description rather than just the event title."
You can add already add
#busy into the description field, but I can see how this might be useful. Descriptions can be bloated with all kinds of text, so I thought it would be overkill. However, I'll look into it for a future update.

Still having issues, with the Beta version installed, where SOMETHING is setting the phone to SILENT, instead of VIBRATE.  It's not happening all the time, but it's happening enough to be a nuisance.

There is not enough logging info for BusyMe to know for sure whether it is BM that has set it to SILENT, or something else. BUT - I don't (AFAIK) have any other apps installed which is capable of disabling the ringer, apeart from Smart-Toggles, which should only do it when I tell it to....

If your ringer is already off before a meeting, Busy Me does nothing. It only acts if the ringer is on. Likewise, if you turn the ringer on during a meeting, Busy Me does nothing until the next meeting. I don't want to intrude on anyone's personal preferences. If you're not seeing notifications, Busy Me isn't changing your ringer.

Does that help solve or answer this riddle?

Hi Fernando, I stumbled upon this app when I was looking for one with these features but I'm unable to install it because of country restrictions.

Hi Fernando,

I've joined the group, and signed up as a tester. I uninstalled BusyMe, and tried downloading it from the Play store, but I'm still on v1.5.2, dated 9-Apr-2013

I'm not quite sure what I've missed.

Busy Me doesn't switch ringer back on, or switches it back on several hours after event at random. 5.0.1 on Moto G XT1033.

I like the idea of the app - it is just what I am looking for. Here is the issue. On my Note 2 the Busy Me notification  shows up during a calendar event that the ringer is off - but the phone still rings.  Thoughts?
