Smart Ring Control

Smart Ring Control


This app is setting your phone ring volume depending on its position. You can set different ring volume level for when the device is horizontal on a table or desk, and when the device is vertical (in your pocked, handbag, etc.).

The notification message is required by Android so the app won't be killed. Jelly Bean users can disable the notification by viewing the app info page, and un-check the "Show notifications" checkbox. The app will still work afterwards.

The app uses the accelerometer sensor of the device to recognize if the device is horizontal or vertical.
The Pro (paid) version also recognizes if the device is horizontal with the screen up or the screen down, and is also using the proximity sensor to aid the position detection.

This ring volume control application is similar in function to PocketMode for iPhone and the "Pocket Mode" option of the latest HTC phones. But it uses the accelerometer sensor instead of the ambient light sensor(which PocketMode uses).

Additionally, you can set the device to be muted for a period of time from within the application. For example, when you go to a movie, you can set the device to be muted for 2 hours, and it will enter silent mode for 2 hours. Right after you finish watching the movie, the device ring volume will be automatically restored to the previous settings. Or you can go to sleep and turn off the ringer until the morning when you wake up.

2012-10-06 v.0.6 - Major new release. Integrated low pass filter for normalizing accelerometer readings. Optimized for faster response times so there won't be any delay between phone ringing and volume adjustment. Applied the new holo theme if you use Android 4+. Changed logging mechanism.

Collision with dialer It makes my phone ring with default melody. Changes volume of ring and messages but probably only just before ring starts. So until there is a phone call it will not change level of sms. So volume of it depends if the last call was horizontal or vertical. Uninstalled after 2 days of usage.

No goods for charging If I lay the phone horizontal to charge it and leave the room to do something else in my house, dinner is too quiet to hear. Fail! I emailed the dev to see about a fix. Not using until it is!
