When the screen is unlocked, silent mode is activated. When the screen is turned off, the last non-silent setting is restored. Note this only affects notifications, not music, games or alarms.
The idea is that when you are using your device, you will see notifications in the top pull-down menu anyway, so it isn’t necessary to also play the sound and/or vibrate. It is especially useful if you are receiving many IMs while you are doing something else.
An optional in-app purchase unlocks the ability to restore the non-silent setting while any installed app you choose is active. This can be useful for example if you would like to still hear notifications while playing a full-screen game.
This app requires the following permissions:
Read Phone State/Identity: This is so that the ringer is not silenced when the phone is unlocked due to an incoming call. This permission enables Shush to tell if the phone is ringing or not (that is all it does with this permission).
Run At Startup: This is to allow Shush to be active right after a restart. This way you don’t have to open the app first.
Retrieve Running Apps: This is necessary to allow Shush to restore the non-silent setting during a particular app.
Shush user reviews :
Great for the most part. I really love the concept of this app and it does what it says it does. The only thing that annoys me is how it makes my phone vibrate after you turn the screen off as a reminder that the app is running in the background ; this would be a great idea but it tends to irritate me as I listen to music on my phone all the time and the vibration temporarily pauses the song that’s playing which sounds a lot like a skipping CD.
Conflicts with Other Sound Apps Very smart idea but for me it interacts with another app of the same name. As such when I turn on the screen the other app pops up to ask how long I want to keep my sound off. Since I can’t use both apps together I need to choose which to keep and sadly it’s not this one. I will check it out again in a few weeks to see if any better but I think that due to what this app does it may be impossible to fix the interaction.
Works great just needs at timer Please add a timer to turn off and on shush at night when sleeping and when you wake up… Otherwise perfect!
So simple Funny that it took this long to come out with an app like this.
