Android 5.0 Lollipop users: This app will fully silence your device, unlike the built in priority mode that Google replaced the normal silent mode with.

Are you tired of waking up in the middle of the night because you got a new text message or phone call?
Silent Hours will mute the audio on your device every day during the periods you set.

Additional options for when sound is muted:
- Mute games, music etc.
- Enable vibration
- Lock the volume to muted, to avoid accidental changes
- Lower brightness to desired level (saves previous level)
- Disable the notification light
- Unmute the sound on incoming call. The sound will be muted again when the call is ended

You can also choose to mute games and music, as well as to enable vibration.
The service keeps running even if you reboot your device.

You can also set a quick mute period, for unscheduled events.

Please note that if you set audio to be muted or reenabled before the current time, this will be done at the time you set, the next day.

Sleep tight!

    I've been using this app for a few years now. It works great and is much better and more flexible than the stock 'Quiet Hours' features that comes with some roms. I choose this app because of the ability to manually mute for a period of time. I like this feature because often times I would go into a meeting and manually set the phone to silent and forget to take if off silent mode when the meet

    No notification in notification bar which I love. The app is designed very well.

    One of my favorite apps until G ruined it with Lollipop. It does still work and has value as it allows you to select multiple priority activation time periods whereas Lollipop only allows one activation period. If you are an old fart and like your naps in the afternoon like me, having a second priority activation time period comes in handy.
