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.”
