Glad to see there are quite a few installs!
Guys, don't forget to report bugs and make feature requests! :D

Looks great! I like the clean design and colors. Might I make 2 suggestions / requests:
1. Is it possible to make the UX a bit more... predictable? For example, when you click a button, it activates an option, but when you click it again, it doesn't seem to do the opposite, which leads to confusion as to how to get back to the original state.
2. Integration with Automagic / Tasker / etc?

Thanks for your efforts!!

Thanks for the app, it seems useful. And looks pretty nice too, especially the animation when you click or hold something.

A couple features that would make it more useful: a quick settings tile to bring up a popup menu, and an alarms only mode.

Also, something that's probably a bug: when you enable Full DnD, then turn it off, then enable Priority Only, all the media, alarms, etc settings will still be off thanks to Full DnD.

Lastly, I see the description says open source, but don't see a link. Would you mind linking to the source code?

Hello! Thanks for the good words! Could you give me an example of when you click a button and it does not have the expected behaviour? Cheers!
Integration with Automagic and Tasker: I'd have to work out how to do that, but I'll add it to the to do list! :)

Thanks also for the good words. I'll add the feature ideas, they are good ideas and I should be able to implement them fairly soon. Lastly, Enabling Priority Only is supposed to switch off media, alarms etc initially. Same as Full Dnd. The only difference is that you are then able to toggle them on if needed. Hope this clarifies things!

Absolutely! As for the 2 items mentioned:
1. Example - it looks like the default state is DND off. If you turn it on using the green top left button, then turn it off again, then click on e.g. media sounds (which is off at that point), it will turn on all 4 options, media, messages, touch, and alarms. You can't then however click to turn any of these off again. Come to think of it, maybe this is a bug where DND state does not match on/off state of various settings.
2. Automagic / Tasker - thanks for looking into this! Not sure if this is your main focus after putting so much effort into the UI, but it would be super useful. I currently use Automagic to set DND on when connected to work wifi, but it refuses to turn it off when disconnected even though I've set that.

Thanks again!

Excellent, thanks, I will check out what you describe and come back to you.

Thanks again!

So I had a look and this is what happens in my case:
1. DND OFF by default (media, alarms etc allowed - can't be toggled)
2. I click on the top green button: Full DND ON (media, alarms etc go to OFF - can't be toggled)
3. I click on the green button again: DND back to OFF (media, alarms etc go back to ON - can't be toggled)

This is expected behaviour. Is that not what you are getting then? If not, please let me know what phone you are using and what android api you're on. Cheers!

Anyone using the app with a Samsung device? Someone on Reddit says that the "Advanced Settings" button crashes the app on a Note 9. Can you guys reproduce this?
It might be that the path to System Settings is different on Samsung devices, in which case I need to modify my code. Please let me know! Cheers!

Love the app! Actually managed to get a setting that I cant find by default on my Huawei Mate 10 pro: Silent calling when called by unknown number, _while_ keeping notification sound on for apps. I use this DND setting 24/7 now.
