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

I've been using a different app that seems to have this same feature set, and has been around longer.

How is this better than other competing apps that perform the same functions?

I cant compare these competing apps you are talking about because i don't know exactly what apps are you talking about .

I can answer you this:
before i wrote this app i looked in the market for something that will fulfill these requirements:
  • easy to use
  • work with synced calendars like exchange or Gmail calendar
  • will have to option to fire and forget
i downloaded several apps including paid ones and I couldn't find what i was looking for.
the ones that was simple couldn't work with synced calendars.
and those who could work with synced calendars were overkill ( profile apps that could do almost anything ) were to complicated to operate and demanded a lot of configurations and frustration.

So I decided to do my best to fulfill the goals i wrote to myself and try to keep it as simple as possible .

Because I cant look at every tool/app that exist in the market there may be an app out there that does serve the same functionality , but odds are that it either not do exactly the same or is a lot more complicated then this one.

error during level 2

i've been using tasker but recently i starder cleaning my app list and noticed that i was using a mighty appp like tasker for just silencing the phoe when i was "busy" in my calendar.
i found your app which probably does what i want but i got intro trouble with it. i get an error when i try to turn it on (error during level 2) and the app crashes when i want to switch to the events tab (second tab).
also i haven't been able to test the filter option: i just want my phone to go silent when o am "busy" in the calendar - that's it. does the filter option allow for such a setup?

hi
Unfortunately busy mode is not yet supported in this app but its a good idea i will add asap.

please check the program version I'm updating and fixing bug almost on daily basis.
the current program version is 1.2.24
additionally if you can please report the problem using the report error button so i can have an idea about where to start looking for problems
about the error please let me know what kind of device you have

finally I started my semester and once the courses started i found some bugs and problems with my app
* fixed bug for overlapping event
* fixed bug with contact exception functionality
* minor bugs regarding event scheduling were fixed

I'll publish another big update soon that will be focused on performance.
