This is a Locale plug-in and Tasker plug-in.

It Detects when something is close to your android device, using the built-in proximity sensor.

The proximity sensor is a piece of hardware that is present in most modern smartphone. It is usualy used to turn the screen off when you hold it close to your ear, when calling. It prevents touching a wrong button with your ear.

You can use it with the Screen Off plug-in to automatically turn your screen off when putting your device in your pocket, or when you put it face down on your desktop. This helps saving battery life.

Google Play shows this app only to users who have a proximity sensor on their device. (If you are allowed to buy this app, then you have a proximity sensor.)

This Locale plug-in is from the same developper as:
-Locale/Tasker Ping Plug-in
-Locale/Tasker Light Sensor Plug-in
-Locale/Tasker Screen On Plug-in
-Locale/Tasker Screen Off Plug-in
-Locale/Tasker Proximity Sensor Plug-in
-Locale/Tasker Proximity Click Plug-in

For a plug-in that handles "clicks" on the sensor, please take a look to the other Locale Plug-in Proximity Click

This is not a standalone app. It requires Locale by TWO FORTY FOUR A.M. LLC or Tasker by CRAFTY APPS to work.

For Tasker users: Once installed, you will find this plug-in under the "State/plug-in" category, not under the "Event/plug-in" one.

    I use this app with Tasker to identify hovering gestures. This app sometimes cause a small lag and not response issue. I have Android 4.4.2 Omni ROM running Galaxy S3.

    Sensor delay does not work. Fix that, and it will be great. Also, text is cut off in some menu options....

    Would be perfect if it had the ability to choose how long after the proximity sensor trips before the "action" takes place. For instance, don't turn off wifi until the proximity sensor has been on for 500 milliseconds (or some other user definable value)
