It is almost impossible these days to enjoy a good movie, check out
a good play or even relax in a public setting without being
interrupted by the bothersome sound of a cell phone ring.
Vpasana is a revolutionary, social app that automatically switches
smartphones to toggle silent mode in designated silent zones based
on user behavior and location information.
Vpasana acquires volume profile information and correlates it to
location information and time to generate a remind to mute, which
is then applied to other users of the app. Vpasana users receive a
silent mode reminder but will not be cut off from accessing their
mobile devices. Users have the ability to make and receive phone
calls, text messages and use all apps while in a silent zone. Vpasana
simply changes the ringtone to vibrating mode and back to the
original ringtone once outside the silent zone.
Vpasana key features include:
1. Automatically or semi-automatically change volume profile
2. Establish your own Silent Zones where all phones should be in silent mode
3. Enjoy the fruits of crowd-sourced intelligence
4. Friendly GUI

Ratings and Reviews
Great idea. Need a lot of rework
The idea behind this app is great. Too bad it's not well implemented. Even if you look past the awful user interface, it's not working well.
1. Setting up a new quiet zone fails more often than it works.
2. Detection of a zone is slow at best, and then it makes a SOUND to tell you you're in a quiet zone. Really?
3. The trumpet fanfare when leaving a quiet zone is really annoying.
4. It claims to use wifi info to decide if you're in a quiet zone (if available). Still it does not go quiet when connecting to the relevant wifi, nor does it exit quiet when leaving the wifi. It really acts as if it's 100% based on GPS, explaining why it acts strange in large office buildings.
Updated for latest version:
The only thing fixed is the notification tone.
Why not let me choose the sound I want.
As detection of silent zone is so unpredictable, both entering and leaving, I'm giving up, and remove the app.
This is an application in accordance with the phone. VPasana prompted me to switch your phone to silent mode and back whenever ringtones rituals in public locations requires "the phone off." I can still receive and make all the phone calls, and use all the apps on your phone. Very good.
5 stars for the concept
What I need to note that the interface is a bit too primitive. But VPasana is really helpful for such forgetful guys like myself :-) Hundreds of times I was ashamed by friend while watching a movie in the cinema for my phone ringing :-( Waiting for the updates!
