    This app is awesome. I use it for class, so it automatically silences my phone when I'm in class and unsilences it when I'm not. It means I never have to worry about my phone going off during class, and I never have to worry about leaving it on silent after class and forgetting about it.

    This article should definitely be put in the "Best of Android Apps" section under automation. :) I have found it to be better than both "Shush! Ringer Restorer" and "Silent Time Pro," which are both listed there.

    This is the sort of app I'm desperate for. Dont really want one that requires internet access though. I know there is one similar with the GO launcher apps, but I always struggle to find a suitable alternative in the app store.
    Would be interested to know if anyone else has trouble navigating the app store trying to find that "perfect app".

    One must exist that's right for me, but I'm yet to find it.

    Tasker is just too complicated for me to get my head around for now, although I will get aorund to it one day. haha.
