Post Reply Email Thread
Flip4Silence enabled you to flip or shake an incoming call silent! It can also reduce the ringtone volume if you pick up your phone!

Unlike all the other ones I know Flip4Silence do not stress your battery. It's only active when you need it. This got some drawbacks... but hey, it works quiet well!

About "mute via flip/shake":
A friend of mine changed his good old WM6.5 phone into a Android powered device and was annoyed that you can't flip a call silent with a AOSP - now here it is, without the battery stress :cool:

About "reduce on pickup":
Someone with an HD2 told me that his phone got this "reduces volume on pick up" feature and I searched the market to find an app for android... Didn't find anything, wrote it myself! Hope you like it too!

Supported android versions: 1.6 and above
Link to Market: Link

Version 1.6.1
- The collection phase is over, thanks everyone for sharing!

Version 1.6.0
- Added "Improve F4S". It would be great if you could help me!
- UI rework
- Maybe fixed "volume not restored" problem
- The fakevibrator used by the "pickup" feature is now stopped when F4S snaps in

Version 1.5.1
- Gingerbread is now supported!
- Fixed 2 rare force closes

Version 1.5.0
- Fixed that "Vibrate only in silent mode" is not a valid mode to enable the pick up volume reducer
- Fixed a bug where the ringer volume is set to early to its normal value
- Fixed the pick up volume reducer behavior
- Fixed shortcut to the audio settings on 1.6
- Added sensitivity settings for the pick up volume reducer
- Added vibration as an option if the pick up volume reducer can't operate
- Minor UI rework

Features:
* flip or shake your phone to mute it (3 modes)
* Pick your phone up from the table and it reduces its volume!
* notifications after hang up (vibration/sound)
* extra battery friendly

Suppoerted modes:
* Mute a call when your phone is laying on its display
* Mute a call when you flip your phone from one side to the oder
* Or mute via a shake

Any feedback/wish/bugreport is welcome!

Will give a try. I've been using Shake2Mute, which is quite similar.

This wont work on my device: HTC MAGIC, I am confident it has an accelerometer and magnetic sensor because other apps use these features do you have any suggestions?

Hm, it seems that something is wrong with the sensorcheck. You are sadly not the only with this issue but the only one who got in contact with me (thanks for this, looking at the comments and see "does not work" is not very nice :/).

I got some questions to investigate this problem:

1) Am I right that the magic is currently on froyo? You got which version?
2) Am I right that a dialog is shown which says "Sorry, no accelerometer and/or magnetic field sensor found"?
3) As you sad other apps are working, which for example (something that uses the phone orientation)?

Currently I have no idea why the code is working on my device (N1) and the milestones I got for testing here...

For the technical people who might have an idea: I'm currently using SensorManager.getDefaultSensor() with the SENSOR_ACCELEROMETER and SENSOR_MAGNETIC_FIELD constants, any idea why this might not work?

Tested on i7500 with 2.2.1 GAOSP.

It lowers the volume when I take it in my hand.
It doesn't mute when flipped.
It does mute when shaked.

Excelent work ! Thanks !

I attached Version 1.4.1 which hopefully fix the issue many people reported. It would be nice if anyone with the message "Sorry your device is unsupported" can try this one and report back how it performs.
