Auto Silent Silences Your Jailbroken iDevice On A Schedule

If you've ever gone to sleep and forgotten to silence your phone, only to be woken up early by a telemarketer or other unwanted call, you're a good candidate for downloading Auto Silent. It's a handy jailbreak app that automatically switches your iDevice to different sound profiles at specific times so you're not bothered by calls and/or alerts when you don't want them.

Auto Silent can get very specific. You can create specific profiles to enable or disable pretty much every sound and vibration your device is capable of. You're then able to assign those profiles to specific schedules so your phone follows the rules whenever the time comes. You can also enable any profile manually if you want to override the current schedule.

Saving yourself from your device's unwanted sounds and vibrations will set you back $US3. AutoSilent can be purchased through the Cydia Store. Just search for it, buy it, install it, and tap its icon on your home screen to set it up.

Auto Silent [ModMyI]


    i agree that this is by far one of the best tweaks available for the iphone...

    But development seems to have ceased so Autosilent does not appear to work on new firmwares anymore...


    This is a fantastic idea, if only it was included on the iphone natively and you didnt have to go through the hassle of jailbreaknig to make it work. The amount of times i get to work and my phone goes off in a meeting or something, setting it to silent from 8:30 to 5 would be perfect.

      I still can't believe that Apple hasn't/won't code this into the OS, or allow 3rd parties to access those areas to develop apps.

      Symbian OS had this 7+ years ago, one of the features of my old Nokia I still miss.

      Not only that which has been a feature that as Pauly7 stated has been in Nokia phones for nearly if not more than a decade. But even Windows Mobile had support for certain levels of it natively (such as times to disable push email, i hate my phone either dinging and/or vibrating loudly on the table at 2am).

      It surely cant be too hard, we don't even need advanced options just a blanket schedule, although allowing certain callers to bypass the silent mode when using the profile for emergencies.
