    Default Looking for app suggestions

    I am trying to find an application that will allow me to silence my phone (only allow favorites) and allow alarms and turn off data. I want this to be like a toggle so I can do it on a whim and not between scheduled times. Does anyone here know of anything like this? I used to have smart actions on my droid raxr maxx and blocking mode is a crock of uselessness on this phone. Any help is appreciated

    Blocking mode does this. Maybe not the data but you could always toggle that in the notification bar.
    Blocking mode can be setup in the settings menu.

    blocking mode does not work at all for me. I attempted this the other night at work and every single notification came through. I know that blocking mode is terrible that is why I am looking for something similar if there is anything

    Won't turning off data also kill all notifications because, well, you wouldn't be getting any (except for calls, of course)? Anyway, I believe Go Power Master has the option to set up a 'profile' that can be customized like what you describe. It's weird that blocking mode doesn't work for you, though...

    Yes, it works for me also. I set mine during sleep hours.

    If yours doesn't work, something is wrong.

    Do you have contact exceptions within the settings? If so, that may be the reason.

    The only problem I encountered with blocking mode is when I accidently blocked my alarm I'll second if it doesn't work you have a problem.

    Oh I see. I thought it was something else. Yes I have it to allow favorite contacts to come through while blocking mode is enabled. We I did find any app that is working very welk for me and no hiccups noticed yet. It is called "no disturb"
