Silencer 1.5.0 has been released. This is the biggest release since 1.0 and, among other things, it enables the service to get orientation sensor notifications even when in standby mode (probably the first application to do that after a change in Android that introduced this problem. More info here). Full changelog:
  • Full Service rewrite.
  • Enable support for getting sensor notifications even when in standby mode.
  • New sensor detection code.
  • Small design improvements in configuration app.
As running in standby mode will use more battery, this option can be enabled or disabled in the configuration app. Tests indicate that the battery usage in standby corresponds to about 9% of the total usage, which is not that much (it uses half of the battery used cell standby, for instance).
