very handy...wish this had been around sooner as I bought Tasker and configured a bunch of profiles to serve the same purpose as what this app seems to do much more simply. Looks great

How about Touchdown support? That would make this incredibly handy for Exchange users!

Touchdown actually does not sync anything to the device.
since this app read local synced events it can't read Touchdown settings or data (events for that matter).
If you wish to use Exchange calendar you can always sync your exchange account to the device using ActiveSync like this
settings -> accounts and sync -> add account -> Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync

once you synced you device this app will be able to read Exchange calendar.

anyway thanks for the advice and ill try to add support for remote Exchange

update:
i added an "add new calendar account " button in settings for those who don't have their account configured

I bought the full version but just can't get it to work.
I went to "Events list" and pressed menu > Update from calendar, and I can see all my events in the list. But it just says "will schedule - event".

Then I go to the "Filters list" and see "all. schedule", yet my phone does not go silent when my events start.

The on/off button is very confusing. When the button is red and says "off", does it mean that it is off, or that I should press it if I wish to turn it off?

Thanks!

Hi.
the on/off button indicate the current state, meaning when the button is green and it's say "on" that mean that auto schedule is enabled

"all schedule" is the default filter that indicate that all events will be scheduled.

please pay attention that even event will be scheduled automatically only if the on/off button is in "on" state.

Pay attention that Calendar Silencer will not schedule events that already in progress, for example if you have event that start in 12:00 and you started the auto schedule in 12:05 the event will not be schedule.

if you enabled notifications please notice that the notification will disappear once the event has started, pressing the notification will clear the notification but also will cancel the alarm

let me know if have any more problems

What am I missing?
MIUI rom HTC Desire.

*edit*

It was MIUIs fault, thanks for the support Swarly!
The app now works brilliantly! Highly recommended!
