I work internationally so I get calls at all hours of the day, and I have meeting reminders beeping a lot. I use SilentTime to put my phone into silent mode (no vibrate!) when I'm asleep, and I use its 'Exceptions' feature to allow calls from my family to come through at all hours in case there's an emergency. This works great! I've never woken up to an unwanted call, text message, email notification chime, meeting reminder alarm, etc.
However, I would like to integrate an alarm clock into this. I'm not familiar with the alarm clock apps on the market, but it seems this presents a problem. Consider this scenario:
SilentTime puts phone in Silent mode from 10PM -> 8AM (except emergency calls)
Alarm Clock set to go off at 6AM
Yes that's right, I don't care to hear my phone ring as soon as I get up! I need coffee before I'm ready to deal with it. But when the alarm clock goes off, the phone will be in silent mode so I won't hear it, right? Seems like I need either:
1) An alarm clock that overrides SilentTime's silent mode; or,
2) A new "alarm clock" exception that I can add to SilentTime
Any suggestions for 1)? I've already emailed the author of SilentTime regarding 2).
Thanks very much! Man I really dig how customizable this phone is.
PS: Yes, I know Tasker can probably do this if I spend half a day configuring it and testing/debugging it. As you can probably tell, I'm not interested in this. I need something that my wife can figure out in a pinch.
