Remote Silencer

Description

  • App allowing remote 'control' of sound on other devices.
  • (App is muting Music, System and Notification Sounds and setting Ringer mode to “Silent” - no sound no vibration.)
  • Includes widgets which can control multiple devices.
  • Commands for mute/unmute are unconfirmed for privacy and lesser footprint.

Stage

Technical details

  • App is using GCM service for distributing commands. (App doesn't need to run on background - when needed it's waked by Android system)
  • Non acknowledged connection for privacy and lesser footprint.
  • Only commands by paired (and not ignored) users are accepted

Known problems

  • (Some older devices - Android 2.2, 2.3.x) Problems with registering GCM service = “PHONE_REGISTRATION_ERROR” - solution unknown :( (re-install to CyanogenMod ROM solved it)
  • Server not responding and messages get lost - Cause: registration server running on problematic webhosting
  • Some apps turning sound back - requires more investigating
