Anas Maarawi is a Syrian blogger who, in addition to writing a popular personal blog, founded Ardroid, the first Arabic website specializing in the Android OS for smartphones.

Maarawi was arrested on 1 July 2011 in Kafarsousah, Damascus. No information about him has been released since.

In addition to a Facebook campaign, activists have also started a blog to campaign for Maarawi’s release.

We demand the Syrian authorities to release Anas immediately as emergency law was lifted.

Shush! Ringer Restorer

Shush! Ringer Restorer lets you set a timer to turn your ring volume back on after you’ve set your Android phone to silent.

This Android app is activated when you silence your ringer using the volume buttons (note that other silencing methods may not activate this app). The true beauty and convenience is in the fact that you don’t need to remember to use a specific app or tap through menus to manage your phone’s ringer volume, it does the work for you!

For example, how many times have you silenced your phone during a class or meeting only to miss calls/notifications afterwards because you forgot to turn the volume back on? When your phone is silenced, a pop-up menu asks you to set the duration you’d like your Android phone kept silent. Adjust the time to your needs and click “Shush!” You can also adjust the volume level of the ringer for when it is turned on again. If instead you’d prefer not to use the ring restorer functionality, just click “Keep it off.”
