ON CALL for Android
With 'On Call' for Android you can set your phone to only ring if a call is received between the time range that you specify. At all other times your phone will remain silent, regardless of your ringer volume setting.
This is particularly useful for workers with an on call period that starts during the night. For example you may be on call from 3am. You don't want to be woken up by a phone call before 3am but you need to hear any calls received after then. By setting a time range starting at 3am your phone will remain silent if you receive a call before then however if you receive a call after 3am your phone will ring.
There are also many other practical applications, for example you could set the 'On' time range from 5pm to 9am so your phone will always ring out of work/school hours but remain silent at work/school.
The app works even when it is in the background, allowing you to 'set and forget'.
Simply press the 'Turn Off' button to disable On Call (or close the app), any incoming calls will obey your device's ringer setting.

For example, you may work in a profession that requires you to be on call from 3am. You don't want to have to wake up at 3am but you need to know if you receive a call after that time, and you don't want to hear any calls received before that time.
- When you go to bed in the evening you set your phone to silent mode and set 'On Call' to be active from 3am.
- Should any calls arrive before 3am the phone will remain silent
- If a call comes in after 3am the phone will still obey silent mode but once the call rings out (or goes to message bank) an alert will sound to wake you up and notify you that you have just received a call which you can then action by checking the message and returning the call.
