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?
- 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.

Stopped working with 4.1 OS update. Tried uninstall and reinstall but still broken
Works perfectly. Should be included in Android, as it gives you the option that should already be present. Thank you!
CM10.1 for i777 (the latest nightlies) has been driving me crazy since media sounds continue to play through the speakers despite having the phone set to silent or vibrate. Notifications and phone calls responded appropriately but only games, videos, etc
Does exactly what it says. Awesome. One of those rare "truly free" apps. Does the author gave a PayPal account for donations?
The must app !!
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.
Absolutely part of every build i make!
