RealSilent mute the media volumen on your mobile device when you change the ringer to silent

I bet it happened to you: after switching the ringer to silent, you started a game, a music player or any other media source and your Android started to sound loudly, embarrassing you. That's because putting the ringer to silent doesn't mean to silent the media volume too (they are independent). Well, until RealSilent burst the scene.

RealSilent ends up with this issue. It allows you to mute on silent mode, as well as vibrate or restore media volume to what it was before going to silent/vibrate. Just in case you were worried about it: no, it doesn't change the alarm volume.

Useful, isn't it?

Developer's original description available here
Battery-friendly background service that will automatically mute the media volume on your phone when you change the ringer to silent.

- Ability to mute on silent mode, as well as vibrate.
- Ability to restore media volume to what it was before going to silent/vibrate.

This app will NOT change the alarm volume. It only makes sense, and if you want the alarm volume to be silent when the phone is silent, please do so on your preferred alarm application, most let you change this setting.

Recently changed in this version

- New icon.
- Better and simplified interface.
- Removed PayPal donations and all the unnecessary permissions.

    I see that this works only on the media volume. Could you add alarm silence or create another all to silence the alarm. I don't need my alarms going off in meeting, just a vibrate will do.

    This should be standard, screw Samsung for not having this. Thanks you for developing this app.

    Does exactly as it says and actually does mute camera sound if used.

    ...should've been a default feature of android.Kudos to the dev anyhow. Works like a charm on my Moto G(KitKat).

    It looks like this app has been abandoned by the dev? Used to work perfectly on JB but something in KK broke it. The app hasn't been updated since 2011 altho I guess there wasn't any real need to since it worked fine. But 4.4.2 - looks like Google changed some things around because this app doesn't work the way it's supposed to...when I have my phone on vibrate, I still hear my music, Netflix, ga
