CNET Editors' review

easyMute offers a very cool way to automatically silence your phone -- just place your hand over it and it works like magic. It saves you from bumbling with your phone to turn off the volume or unplugging your earbuds when someone suddenly wants to talk to you. Your friends and family will be sincerely impressed when you show them how this app works.

When this application is turned on, you can mute your music player just by holding your hand over your phone. You don't even have to touch it, and the phone's screen doesn't have to be on for the app to work. It doesn't notice every music or video player out there, but we tested it with Google Music and Spotify and both worked very well. Your phone does have to have a proximity sensor for the trick to work, but most Androids come with that standard. During our tests, we noticed that the app usually only worked when our phone was on a flat surface, but this is something you can change from easyMute's Settings menu. You can also change whether the app works with just headphones or if it works with your phone or tablet's built-in speaker, as well.

easyMute is worth downloading at least once just to see the neat trick in action. It will wow most people when they first see that it actually works. Outside of that, this application has some usefulness if you listen to your phone while you're at work or in a group setting. It saves you the trouble of juggling with your phone to mute it. If there were a criteria for originality, we would definitely give it five stars.

    "For music lovers..."

    May 24, 2013  |   By JoanVilarino

    Version: easyMute 1.04

    Pros

    Easily pause music without the hassle of starting/unlocking your device. Low battery drain.

    Cons

    Only thought for people who listens music with the phone on the table, working, studying or whatever...

    Summary

    It's a little handy tool that makes your life easier while listening music.

    As for the ratings, I'm the developer... so it's a five star!! haha
