I was pretty amused to discover that Apple’s Do Not Disturb feature in iOS 6 is pretty close to my Android application I’m sleeping, which was available long before their version.
Android doesn’t offer such feature by default (but some ROMs do). At first, I was puzzled by that lack. I searched on Google Play but didn’t find anything that suited me, namely:
- simple and intuitive user interface
- intelligent design, with separate settings for week days and week ends
- white list, allowing close friends or family to call you at all times
- manual mode for naps or out-of-schedule sleeps without having to reconfigure everything
So I wrote it myself. Apple’s version is similar except it uses favorites instead of a white list. It also has a “go through” mode if the caller insists but doesn’t feature a manual mode (Apple still didn’t “invent” widgets).
Available on Google Play for free and without ads.
