PowerCaller allows one contact to bypass your iPhone’s silent mode

You can put your iPhone into silent mode by using the switch on the side when you don’t want the ringtone to make a bunch of noise. On the other hand, we all have someone special in our lives we still want to hear notifications from, regardless of everyone else.

PowerCaller is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Joe Merlino that lets you override the mute switch and boost the ringtone volume for one specific contact, and it’s perfect for the aforementioned scenario.
