      Just in SILENT mode you can miss important/emergency call from your relatives for example. This application help not to miss it. And a lot of other things.

          I can be sure that if my wife, dad or mam calling me in the middle of the night this is emergency and important call. So, I'll add them to "white list" and will never miss call from them.

    I have seen Chogger been used for instructions/tutorials in a very successful way. Traditional instructions/tutorials can look very boring but with a comic strip, at least my brain get into another "mood" and I have easier to read it
