    iPhones, and even certain iPads, have a ringer/silent switch on the side that can either allow sound to come from the device, or completely silence it so that no sounds for notifications will be heard. If you really don't need this functionality because you're perfectly capable of using the volume buttons to make notification noise as preferable as you want, then you may be in the market to re-purpose your ringer/silent switch into something more useful.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called SwitcherDND is now available by iOS developer Allezandre that makes it so that the ringer/silent switch can be used to toggle Do Not Disturb mode on or off. It's perfect for flipping your iPhone into Do Not Disturb mode before sleep, during meetings, and even while in class, so that you won't have any annoying notifications buzzing while you're busy.

    When you're done, you can just flip the switch again to turn Do Not Disturb mode off and resume your usual day. The developer of the tweak suggests using a Flipswitch to give you a way to put the iPhone or iPad into silent mode since you'll be re-purposing the ringer/silent switch.

    If you want to give SwitcherDND a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak doesn't come with any options to configure and works with both iOS 7 and iOS 8.
