On Blackberries you can setup phone profiles such that a (manually set) night time profile would allow for some contacts (family, etc) to always be able to call/sms you but all others would remain silenced. Is there an Andriod app that provides similar?
Yes there is. My phone is DOA right now, but I believe it is called, Silent Time Lite. You choose times for your phone to be silent for emails, texts, and calls, but can set up exceptions for people.
