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!

Recently changed in this version

13.05.09 (v4.2):
- Added a notification LED setting for schedules. This feature WILL NOT work on all devices, and probably won't work on Samsungs or LG devices (not including Nexus devices). Tested and found working on Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus.

- If a period is set to start before the current time, the sound will be muted immediately from now on. The same will happen if the device is booted within a period.

- Added German application language. Many thanks to dert07 for translating!

    it's a nice app that can silent the phone and dim the screem at a given time. the sound locker is a pretty good option. but how can I disable it and resume the setting if I wake-up early? like i wake up in the morning but the screen is dim and sound is locked.

    Awesome and minimal. It's a shame it's not built in functionality. I have a complaint though: LED indicator is not turning back on.

    Simple and easy to use. Beautifully designed. Non-intrusive. Great app. Exactly what I needed. A little short on the features of all of what it can fully control but it's benefits outweigh this con.

    Notification sound from text messages was not muted during the time period set in the app.
