Missing the days of Silent Mode on your Android 5.0 powered device? This app is worth your money

Bear in mind that when we refer to “Silent Mode” we mean the ability for the phone to still receive and display updates and notifications, but with no sound and no vibration. In Android 5.0, the sound profiles were replaced by a couple new modes, “Priority” and “None.” Hammering the volume down gets you to vibrate mode only, which may not be desirable in a meeting or a library. To get things the way they used to be in the old silent mode, you have to select priority, and fine tune the settings within that mode to get it the way you want.
Well some developers in Germany have a fix for all those shenanigans. SoundHUD brings back more discrete controls to your volume and sound settings on your Android 5.0 powered device, and best of all, no root is required.
SoundHUD lets you pick from a variety of styles, and is highly customizable. It also delivers on providing a true “Silent Mode.” So, if your Lollipop powered smartphone is pure bliss except for that little detail, SoundHUD may be your savior. It comes with a two-week free trial. If you like it, it is only $1.49, and we suspect for many of you, that will be money well spent.
