Why did I write the app?

When I got my first android phone back in 2010 (a Dell Streak), I was fascinated by the world of apps. So I wanted to try out to write my own. But what app should i write? It should be simple, but still be of use to me. So I decided to implement a feature, that I missed on my phone: When I had to mute my phone, because I was at a meeting, in cinema, at a concert or whatever, I often forgot to unmute my phone afterwards. So why not let my phone do it automatically. Normally I know how long the phone has to be muted beforehand. So this was my plan: Write an app to mute my phone for a certain period of time. I wanted to have the following features in this app:

How can I try out the app?

If you want to use this app yourself, you can download it from this site or from google market. If you download it from this site, you need to modify your Android's settings to allow the installation of applications from other sources. Under "Settings", select "Application Settings" and then enable "Unknown Sources".

The app was tested on the following hardware:

Minimum Android Version: 2.1
Download Link: AutoMuter.apk
Google Play: AutoMuter

When I have time, I will review the code and put it on a public git repository for download. And maybe I will put some explanation of the code here on the webpage. Though the app is really very simple and probably there is not much to explain anyway.
