Silence O'Clock 2.0

A demo of the spiffy effects on the Quick Slice creation widget.
At long last, I've finished a bunch of new features and modifications to my Silence O'Clock app. Besides changing "Silence Period" to "Silence Slice"-- it's alliterative, and I wasn't a fan of the old wording anyway-- the biggest new thing is the addition of "Quick Slice." With Quick Slices, with just a "slice" (in this case, a sliding motion with your finger) and a couple taps, you can set your phone to silent for 15 minutes up to 6 hours, after which your ringtone will automatically be turned back on. This feature is perfect for movies or unscheduled meetings-- you'll miss any calls because you forgot to turn your ringer back on again!

+ There's now an option to have Notifications displayed during Silence Slices
+ New "Quick slice" feature: a one-shot slice of silence for movies, etc.
+ Shortcut available for creating Quick Slices
* "Periods" renamed to "Slices" (as in "time slice")
* Times for new Slices now start at the current time and end an hour after
* Various dialogs now have a bit more explanation
