Bellshare let me know that they released BerrySilent which is a simple app that lets you silence your BlackBerry. The coolest thing about it is that on the Storm it is activated by flipping your device face down. On other devices you can set a convenience key to silence it kind of like how you can hold down the Q button in OS 4.6+. The app is regularly $3.99 but is on sale until Sunday for $1.99. You can check out a video of the app in action and a full description after the jump!

BerrySilent allows you to silence your BlackBerry by simply flipping it over (Storm only) or by pressing a convenience key.
You can set the phone profile (Normal, Vibrate, Silence etc) to switch to as well as the profile to return to on switching back. You can either set a fixed profile or have BerrySilent automatically switch back to the previously active profile.
When silencing your phone via the convenience key you can select to automatically lock the device. On unlock the profile will automatically switch back.
Furthermore you can select the profiles in which BerrySilent is allowed/not allowed to switch. This can be especially useful if you do not want to switch from vibrate to silence when flipping over your Storm.
