SemiSilent bridges the gap between the seemingly exclusive states that your Android phone’s ringer can be in, silenced or not. When your phone is silenced you risk becoming unreachable by anyone or during any situation, including emergencies. However, when your phone’s ringer is enabled you risk being interrupted by anyone for any reason. Now, with this Android app you don’t have to worry because your phone can be in both states at the same time.
This app opens to a complete list of your contacts. Simply select the people for whom you’d like to be available to at all times. Whether or not your phone is in silent mode it will ring for these individuals. For most of us, we’ll select our closest family members including spouses and kids, just to have that peace of mind that you’ll never miss one of their calls.
- Select contacts who should be able to reach you even when your phone is silenced
- Option to toggle SemiSilent’s functionality on/off
- Setup and implementation are extremely easy
Areas for improvement:
- Extend functionality to SMS
Conclusion: Designate contacts who can reach you even when your Android phone is silenced and never have to worry about missing another important call.
