FavRinger


Very simple app that will make your phone ring when you receive a call from a favorite contact while the phone is on Silent Mode.
All you need to do is to add the contact to your favorite contact group in your Contacts app.

Features:
- Very easy to use.
- Support as many Favorite contact as your Contact app can hold.
- You do not need to activate it every time you add a new Favorite contact.
- Just activate it the first time after you install it then forget it.
- You can activate it or deactivate it at anytime as you wish.
- If you deactivate it and if your phone is on silent mode, your phone will not ring if you received a call from a favorite contact.
- You can use your own ringtone if you wish.
- (NEW) "My Prayer" app support (see the description below).
- No annoying notification's icon.
- FREE and without Ads.

This app is important for you if you do not want to miss any important call, especially if you forgot your device on silent/vibration mode.
Or if you use the silent/vibration mode most of the time but still want to receive calls from your favorite contacts.

This app needs Android version 4.0 as a minimum requirement.

Please test the app on your phone before you count on it.

There is 2 methods to use the app.
Method 1:
Use the app as it is. it will work with most of the devices with the app's special ringtone.
If the app did not work or if you want to use your own ringtone, use Method 2.

Method 2:
Press the settings button (the third button) then choose Ringtone 2 or follow the guidelines to use your own ringtone.

IMPORTANT: In some devices if you add a contact to the Favorite group by pressing the star button, the app will not work. Instead of that, please add the contact to the Favorite by pressing "Add to favorites" in your Contacts app which will appear if you long-press on the desired contact. If you still have problems, please remove the favorite contacts from the favorite contact group, reboot your device ,activate the App then add the favorite contact.

The app is tested and proven to work in many devices including Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 with their official ROMs.

"My Prayer" App Support:
If you use this feature your phone will remain Silent during prayer times even if you received a call from a favorite contact.

To use this feature:
1- Make sure that you have "My Prayer" installed and that the Prayer Notifications are working.
To make sure go to the settings of My Prayer then "Notification Settings" then make sure that "Notify" is checked.
2- Go to the settings of your device then go to "Accessibility" then press "FavRinger" then press the button above to activate the feature then press OK. (In some devices, you may need to deactivate then activate the Accessibility for the app again after every device restart).

*** In some devices you will notice that if you open or close an apps folder in you launcher, you will hear a notification sound saying "Folder is opened" and "Folder is closed". This is a bug in android and not caused by the app. Simply, if you activate the "Accessibility" settings for any app you will face the same results.

While hoping for Google to fix this issue in a new version of Android, you can solve the issue with ONE of the following solutions:
Solution 1: If you use English as the language of your device, changing the device language to another language like Arabic will simply resolve the issue and you will not need any other solution.
Solution 2: If you do not need the "My Prayer" Support, simply deactivate the accessibility of FavRinger and any other app under "Accessibility".
Solution 3: As an alternative way, you can install an app from the Google Play Store to arrange your apps in folders like "CircleLauncher light" which will work as a widget. Or you can even use another launcher like "Nova Launcher".

Many thanks to my best friend Dr.Mohammad Badawood for his beta-testing and feedback.
