Un-Silencer App

Sometimes my wife forgets to turn the ringer volume on her phone, after silencing it for church and the like. This causes a certain amount of frustration for me and the kids. Fortunately, she has an Android phone, so there is an app for that. The un-silencer app is wired in to the "set vibrate" event, so that you don't actually have to remember to use the app--it automagically gets triggered, when you set your phone on silent/vibrate. It pops up and asks you to set a timer for when to take the phone off vibrate. Works very well.

That is the kind of thing that is SO cool with Android and iPhone--you aren't dependent on the limited ambitions of the phone manufacturer, for cool features that matter to you.
