    For those of you that don't know Bedside,

    It is a night clock that turns off all notifications while it's opened. However, if somebody calls you, it will ring/vibrate, or whatever ring mode you had before you opened it. For example:

    - You set the phone to vibrate
    - Open Bedside
    - You get any notification, sms, email, other app, etc.. it wont vibrate or sound, nothing.
    - You get a call, it will vibrate.


    It has features like:

    - TTS (Text-to-Speech), long press anywhere on the screen, and Bedside will say the time. You can enable/disable this on the preferences.
    - Swipe Up/Down for Brightness Control.
    - Battery Status
    - Option not to turn off sounds (Clock Only).
    - Ability to Keep Screen On, or just let it off along with your Display Timeout setting (Bedside will keep running).
    - 24 Hours Format (TTS will say time in 24 hours as well)
    - Text Colors
    - Text Fonts (only for the time)
    - Subtle Background (optional since it doesn't help with Brightness)
    - Flashlight (on the menu, or also you can enable the Show Lightbulb option on preferences and a small lightbulb will show up on the top left corner for easy flashlight access)


    As you can see, this app is very customizable and useful. It's $1.49 and available in the market right now.

    There's a "Lite" version as well but it's missing many features that the regular version has.

    I use this app when I travel and I fear that the wife might need to get in touch with me while I'm alseep. However its nice to know that all the emails and text messages get muted. ;)

    Well, If she calls you, it will ring or vibrate, depending what setting you had before opening Bedside. If you don't want Bedside to turn off any notification you can use the "clock only" option in the preferences and it'll only be like a clock.

    Thanks for the support

    I just wanted to mention how impressed I am with this app, and with the developer. I bought this for my Droid last night, had a small issue, emailed him, and got an answer within 10 minutes :) This app is the only one I've found that has most of the features offered, and is extremely effective!

    Is there any way to get this to turn off the glowing buttons on the Droid. I found the original bedside mode of the OS to be way too bright for sleeping so downloaded this app which I like a lot better (more customized), but the buttons glowing bright white still make it brighter than I really want.

    Hi, I have already tried looking into this yesterday, no luck, Motorola did this in a very weird way and there's no way for us developers to control that part of the phone, YET.
    Soon there will be an update that might allow us to do something about this, and I'll keep looking into it, as soon as they come up with something, or I'll figure it out, I will implement the fix in Bedside.

    Thanks

    Oh I'm sorry, the Lite version is not available anymore.
    You could get the full version and refund it within 24 hours if you don't like it.

    Thank you for the response. At least I'm not crazy...I used it while on a trip over the weekend and thought the buttons weren't on...but they must have been.

    Thanks again...great app and the functionality your app gives the phone is really what it should have been. I guess this is why droid is so great, huh? What they leave out can easily be added in.

    Exactly, that's exactly the whole point of Android's openness! Google made in a way that developers can do almost anything to improve the user experience.

    Thank you for the compliments.

    Another vote for this app and the developer! Great functionality in the application itself. I had some questions and the developer e-mailed me back within minutes and was willing to exchange some emails back and forth.

    Top notch...worth even more than he's charging!

    This was one thing I missed a lot about my Blackberry's...BEDSIDE MODE!

    I just bought this app and am looking forward to trying it out tonight!

    Whitelists would be very, very nice. I can say that if it were that customizable, I would drop the 1.50 no problem, as opposed to the merely considering it I'm doing now.

    SMS Whitelists are already implemented, and Calls Whitelists are coming soon as well as weather, should be coming up as the next update unless a bug shows up.

    thanks

    Sorry about that, it stopped working in 1.5 due to some APIs that I needed to use from 1.6 so Hero, Moment or Cliq users can't see it in the market. :(

    I'm sorry, after version 3.0 Bedside needed to be updated to use the 1.6 SDK, and it's not backward-compatible since it uses many 1.6-specific APIs. :(

    Hopefully you guys get upgraded to 1.6 or 2.0 soon!

    I don't suppose you still have an old less-feature-rich version back in your archives that only needed the 1.5 API's? There's a lot of us that are still stuck with Android 1.5 for the foreseeable future. And I'd really like to try your app!...even if it has to be an older version that doesn't have all the current goodies.

    If its not really feasible, I'll just have to wait for Sprint to update me :(
