Snotify brings alerts scheduler to Windows Phone but only interop-unlocked devices [Homebrew]

Snotify

It's been awhile since we've seen some solid homebrew pop out from developers so it's with great interest for us to find Snotify version 1.0 floating around.

Billed as an "application that silences notification sounds based on a schedule" the concept should be very familiar to anyone who used the fabulous Windows Mobile app PhoneAlarm or PhoneWeaver. Anyone else just have a technology flashback?

In short, the app allows you to schedule your email and test/IM notification sounds so they won't disturb you in the middle of the night. For instance, you could have email on "silent" from 10pm to 6am or have SMS only with sound--your choice.

The free tool made by JMD Software needs to be "sideloaded" on to a fully interop unlocked phone meaning a lot of folks including developers won't be able to use it. That's a bummer but it's still a fascinating contribution to the homebrew scene.

Of course we know what many of you are thinking and even more of you will comment on -- why didn't Microsoft just include this in the OS? It's a good question as we'd kill to have this built into our Lumia 900 or Titan II, but alas even we have to sit this one out as our phones aren't capable of being fully unlocked just yet.

I need information about WP8! Come on Daniel! Please go find something really juicy this week. I know you can do it dude!!

lol, I'm trying, I'm trying...

Damn that uncertainty regarding apollo update for current devices.. it's really holding me back on buying new phone.

woodbane says:

I think it's awesome that the homebrew community is creating these apps. However, I'm saddened by the fact this is the kind of thing that should be baked right into the OS. It's just so basic, I mean who DOESN'T want the ability to silence alerts on a schedule.

Yet another reason I'm going to be taking a break from Windows Phone until at least WP8 I think, when hopefully these kinds of things will be fixed.

I'm actually completely indifferent to this functionality. Wouldn't use it if I had it.

Interesting, but I only know people who call me / text me in the middle of the night if it's really important.

Jazmac says:

"Snotify version 1.0 floating around" Snotify? They actually named this Snotify? Is Snot ever a good thing?

Silence Notification = SNotify

I mean I get what you're saying but it's also free homebrew, it's not like more than a few hundred or thousand will ever get to even use it.

Correction: You don't need a fully unlocked phone. You need to have an interop unlocked phone with WP7 root tools install.

Just wanted to point that out because the amount of people with a fully unlocked is way way less then people with a interop unlocked phone.

Heathcliff74 says:

Thanks for noticing that :-D

Also, this app uses the WP7 Root Tools SDK. I'm really excited to see that a lot of homebrew apps are being released now, that make advantage of my SDK :-D

Corrected, thanks.

elgrancapo says:

Or we can just set to silent with vibrate off. Alarms still sound regardless.

schlubadub says:

How do you make the alarm sound loud enough, but sms alert still quiet?

elgrancapo says:

The alarm gradually gets louder.

schlubadub says:

This is very useful. I don't often get messaged at night, but sometimes messages are delayed, or it's an automated message scheduled overnight, or it's sent in a part of the country a few hours ahead. I've been woken up numerous times when I didn't need to be.
