    I've had multiple mobile devices and each time I have to install this app. After install, I no longer worry about setting my ringer to silent at work, or church. I no longer have to manually toggle WiFi when leaving/coming home/work. I"m not sure of the difference between paid and free, maybe the advertisements? I upgraded to paid, both seem to fit my needs. 4 stars for having a slight learning
