    First off I'm a massive fan of this feature, like, hugely and I will not sleep without it on anymore.
    But is there anyway to have it disabled for certain apps? A very good friend of mine is now living in Aus while Im in the UK, and will only be able to Skype me, and so for obvious reasons I might be sleeping when he calls.
    So, is there a way to disable do not disturb for Skype calls as well as the favourites list for example?

    Thanks guys!

    Go into settings and you can schedule DND, and allow certain apps to bypass.

    I don't think so, thought you could tell him to just call twice if the first time doesn't go through which do no disturb will then allow go through.

    There is also an allow calls section though I'm not sure if Skype would be included in it.

    You cannot allow different apps to bypass.

    Ahhh thats a shame, thanks for the super quick response though guys!

    Would be a decent feature to add to DND no?

    Yes! A weekend mode would be fantastic.
    Possibly even something crazy like the M7 and its motion tracking, so if its set to a moving setting say on certain days (Friday/Saturday nights come to mind as a student) then its disabled?
    Don't know if that would be useful to anyone else but just another idea!
