Silent

On Windows Phone it’s really easy to toggle between Ringer and Vibrate—simply press the volume key (up or down) and then tap the bell in the upper right hand corner to switch. But what about getting it to silent mode?

It’s a little tricky but easy once you understand how it works: Simply head to Settings –> Ringtones + Sounds and toggle the Vibrate function off. Now, when you tap the bell in the upper right hand corner, it will switch between Ringer + Silent. Sure, we wish there was an easier way to toggle between all three (ringer, vibrate and silent) but this is Microsoft’s current paradigm so that’s what we have to use.

Should Microsoft offer a third tap to toggle vibrate on or off? Let us know in the poll after the break. And make sure you check out our other tips and tricks.

We like our indie developers who make some fun casual games for Windows Phone, so seeing Pirate Cat available we'll take it. Cats people, it has cats...

The game is made by Xeno Bits and has an 1920's silent movie feel to it with black and white graphics and a catchy piano soundtrack. From the description:

"The captain found THE map, but it does not really lead to the expected location... Actually, it takes to the moon, and he thought that sending you there to dig up the treasure would be a great idea.

You are the Pirate Cat, and you have to reach the moon by using your brand new handmade wings, hitting birds and collecting feathers to keep flying. Try to reach the moon before the break of dawn!"

The game is fun, has cool challenges with trophies and superb graphics for an enjoyable experience. What's more, through June 1st you can grab the game for absolutely free--no ads, no catches--making this a great opportunity to pick up a quick little gem of a game.

You can grab Pirate Cat here in the Marketplace and make sure to leave the dev some positive ratings if you like it.
