Hey what's up guys!
I have put together this app for those movie goers out there who don't like to be disturbed while watching a movie.

It's still in a beginning stage but works as I intended it to be for now.

The works:

This app is called "Movie Mode"

It's an app that works as a toggle. It has no user interface, You just put the icon on your home screen or wherever is easy for you to access.
Once clicked once it will activate and send your phone into vibrate mode, ignore all calls, and send the caller a text message simply saying:
"I'm watching a movie, I'll call you back after".

Then, after your movie is finished, you click the icon once more and it turns your sound back on and accepts calls again.

And that's it!

And if you have a Gear 2 smart watch you can add it through the launchgear app and be able to toggle from your smart watch.
If you enable notifications for the app you will recieve a quick notification on the watch saying either "Movie Mode ON" or "Movie Mode OFF"

Feel free to try it out and let me know what you all think about it! 👍
Thank You

INSTALL: Just install like any other app. Make sure unknown sources is checked in your settings.

DOWNLOAD

Changelog:

1.0 - initial release

.................................................. ......
Other modes:
Meeting Mode
(works just like the "Movie Mode" it just changes "I'm watching a movie" to "I'm in a meeting"

This is a really cool idea. It would be awesome if you could make a "I'm in a meeting" version for those of us that would like what we are really doing to be on the downlow or even really in a meeting.

That is actually what I had in mind for a future update. Once I get the user interface all figured out, that's an idea I had to have custom modes for the user to enter their own text.
But for now it's just a toggle

@JoeyDuran are there any additional plugins needed for this? You should put that in the OP

Edit: Also, I hope it is OK, I put your profile/app in my Tasker thread! http://forum.xda-developers.com/spri...s-gs5-t2996112
