When Simon and Garfunkel wrote the Sound of Slience, I'm not sure they were talking about TreoMute for the Palm, but nevertheless the song is very apt for this application. Perhaps it could be on the advert. Not that there will be an advert. Anyway, I'm not reviewing Paul and Art's song, I'm analysing the software, so let's get on with it.
Essentially TreoMute is an interesting utility that allows you to activate the silent mode on your Treo at given interval times programmed by yourself. The app empowers you with the ability to activate silent mode by simply pressing one button. After a given time the program will then switch back on the sound on your device.
There are a few options available from the settings menu, including the definition of the button to activate mute, the mute interval, along with the elements of your handheld that you wish to mute.
The program works very well but you'll need to watch out because certain Treo applications may lock your activation key to that app, meaning that it won't work when you come to use it to mute your apps.
Perhaps TreoMute could've included a few more options for scheduling mutes but nevertheless it's good for quickly disabling the sounds on your device.
