Silence For Android Integrates With Google Calendar

Android: Silence is a handy utility for automatically toggling your sound and wireless settings based on specific times of day, and the last time we mentioned it we praised its super-simple UI. Now the app has been updated to include integration with Google Calendar

Silence 2.0 comes with a number of improvements, most notably the ability to toggle your wireless, mobile data, sound, and notifications settings based on appointments in your Google Calendar. If you have a meeting from 9am to 10am, you can tell Silence to mute all notifications and your ringer during that time period. You can still set your own quiet periods too, so if you know you'll be in bed between 11pm and 7am the next morning, you can tell Silence to turn everything off while you sleep to conserve battery.

The last time we mentioned Silence we noted that while it is easy to use, many of you probably get the same effect with more advanced apps like Tasker, Llama or Locale. That's still true, but if you want a simpler, faster way to manage those settings with little fuss, Silence is a simpler way to do it.

The latest version is free (and ad-supported, there's also a paid pro version that strips out the ads) and available now at Google Play. Make sure to read the app description -- Silence supports Android 2.1 and higher, but how many of the app's features work for you depends on the version of Android your phone is running.
