3 College Students Design App That Silences Ringing In Class

Posted: Updated:

Three college students in Orlando may have the answer to a 21st Century problem: How do you automatically set your cell phone to silent while you're in class or a meeting?

Jonathan Wachob, Brandon Carpenter and Tom Johnson all say they got tired of the ringing, so they came up with a solution: A smart phone app that allows them to take their phone at the beginning of the semester, set it and forget it.

Their friend, Ed Jesizek, is a software engineer major and together they created the app they call "Ringtone Manager."

"By putting our schedule into the phone ahead of time for a whole semester, at the start of class it automatically goes on silent and at the end of class it automatically goes on loud," Brandon Carpenter, a Seminole State student said.

The three also think the app has a place in settings outside of college.

"You could set it during a business meeting and you could have it go back to loud afterwards," Jesizek said.

For now though, it's a $1 investment for college students who want to avoid a grade killing mistake.
