Using your phone often? Tired of the On-Off switching?
This app turns automatically your screen off when you put your phone into your pocket or onto a table and turn the screen on when you take it out or up. No need to touch any button and you are ready to go. It's also helpful if your side button does not work.

HOW TO UNINSTALL?

Use the UNINSTALL button in the app.

HOW IT WORKS

It monitors the orientation of the device through the gravity sensor. When your phone is pointing downward by its top, below a certain angle, it's likely to be out of use. In this situation the proximity sensor is activated to determine if it is covered. If yes, the screen turns off because probably you placed the phone into your pocket or onto a table.
To keep the battery usage low the program turns on the proximity sensor only when it's really necessary. Moreover, when it turns your screen off and the proximity sensor is covered it puts your phone into deep sleep state to save as much energy as possible.

MAIN FEATURES

- Pocket Sensor: Recognizes if your phone is in your pocket.
- Table Sensor: Detects your phone is lying on a table and turns the screen off.
- Turn Screen On by Motion: If the screen is off and it's facing up the device can be woken up by any movements, for example lift up by hand.
- Keep Screen On by Motion:It keeps the screen on by relying on the small movements you are doing by your hand while holding the phone. If small motions are detected while the screen is facing up the feature keeps the screen on because it can be suspected that the phone is held and probably you are reading something. If the phone is steady the normal screen timeout will apply in any position you leave your device.
- Tasker, Llama, Locale supported by plug-in.

BATTERY USAGE

It should be not significant. I experienced about 6 per cent extra consumption on the test device. However it can be much higher by often using the Turn Screen On by Motion feature. Thus, keep your phone face down if you want to save energy.

IMPORTANT

On some devices (e.g. HTC One) the alarm clock is switched off by the app after it had gone off! Please check if it's the case for you. If, yes, use a third party app, for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vp.alarmClockPlusDock

FAQ

Q: The screen not always turns off when I put my phone into my pocket, why?
A:The proximity sensor not always accurate. It can fail recognizing some materials specially if they are very close to it. If it happens to you often, you can activate the False Turn-On Protection feature which effectively reduces the number of accidental wake-ups.

Q: I'm experiencing high battery usage, why?
A: The app should use about 6 percent extra energy per day if you are not using too much the Turn Screen On by Motion feature, for example keeping your phone face down when it's on a table. Moreover, please, keep in mind that the android en-built battery consumption measurement can show much higher results if it's based on a short period of time.

    I used cyanogenmod and omni ROM on both of these ROM the free upgrade to pro is not working. It only works if you have connectivity else it downgrades to free. So I was left with the only version to buy pro and found that it does not has all the features. What an irony even after spending twice one for free upgrade to pro and other for pro directly I don't have all the feature. So please be

    This is how I use this, I put my screen lock delay on 30 minutes, if I want to lock my device I just flipped my phone. If I want to turn on the screen I swipe the proximity sensor. Lock or not, it turns on. Very very useful app. I'm happy I bought this.

    Great app. Works as described most of the time but find I have to reinstall every so often to reset odd screen on behaviours.

    Just switch from free version to pro, just to get extensive features and to support the developer.

    I really enjoy this app but was wondering if an option could be added to the "lying face of options" that would enable users to disable the 1 minute, 5 minute, 15 minute, etc, timers. Thanks
