With the Extras Pack enabled your device screen can be lit instantaneously when it already went blank, without having to push a power button; either as a consequence of a received notification or by lifting the device from your desk within a specified delay counting from the last active use.
Most users should notice improved battery life of their devices with SleepTweak and be more productive. SleepTweak goes further than any other application capable to keep a screen awake. With SleepTweak enabled, especially with stand-by option enabled, you are safe to set the screen inactivity timeout to 10 seconds - this application will keep the screen awake when needed and allow you to quickly regain interaction with your device when the screen already went blank.
Read below for more details.
* Screen stays awake while being held in a viewing angle
* Improves battery life thanks to much quicker screen blanking possibility
* No configuration needed; however settings can be fine tuned
* Keeps device security and screen locking mechanism unaltered
* More efficient and battery friendly than utilities using only face detection
* Instant screen wake-up once it already went blank; during stand-by period allowing you to regain immediate interaction with your device without use of a power button
* Missed call? Just pick the phone from your desk to see who was calling and call them back; the screen will go bright automatically once you pick up your phone
* Screen can also wake-up automatically whenever you decide to read messages which have just arrived (SMS, instant messages, calendar events and email). This is practical not only for intensive chatting via Google Talk and other instant messengers, more comfortable for reading SMS authorization codes, for business users checking their appointments. Automatic screen wake-up will never occur in a pocket.
* Gain more productivity during daily use of your mobile device such as during internet browsing, picture gallery browsing, e-books / news / tweets reading, messaging etc.
Extras Pack is priced $2.99 for a limited period of time. The core SleepTweak features are free to use.
Achieved battery savings and productivity gain are individual and vary depending on actual usage pattern of your device.
Some SleepTweak functions use Android accessibility API which must be explicitly authorized by users. During accessibility activation you will be presented by a pop-up warning telling you that it would be possible for SleepTweak plug-in to collect sensitive data.
This application does NOT collect sensitive data and it has no permission to access the internet which means you are safe to enable the plug-in. If you are unsure, please feel free to double check the app permissions. If still not convinced and you do not enable the SleepTweak plug-in, SleepTweak will be limited to wake on SMS only.
