"Turn over to lock your device"

Reviewed by / Jun 26, 2012

Smart Screen Off uses the proximity sensor to turn the screen of and on automatically

Quoting Smart Screen Off developer (AndroidHD) "there are some devices that don't have any physical button on the front screen to lock/unlock screen (for example, Galaxy Nexus). Smart Screen Off has been developed in order to make it faster and comfier.

Enable the app by launching it on the app drawer. It will remain enabled and visible in your status bar until you disable it again. Once enabled, turn over your Android device on the table or simply put the it into your pocket. It automatically will remain locked until you "unblock" the sensor, that's it, when you pick your device from your pocket.

This feature is built-in on SGS3 and other high-end devices. However, if you don't have any of that devices, this app is a good alternative. It does what it says, and it does it pretty good (we had no issues either on a SGS Custom ROM ICS 4.0.4) nor a Desire HD.

The only catch: in the Lite version you cannot set anything, if you want to try features such as: start on boot, hide icon, hide notification messages, enable/disable on shake... and many more, you should get PRO version. Business is business. Anyway, good toggle-app.

Developer's original description available here
Smart Screen Off is the free version of Smart screen off PRO which includes a lot of cool features!

************ DESCRIPTION *************

Smart Screen Off LITE it's a simple and light app which uses the Proximity Sensor built in your Android smartphone to turn the screen off and on automatically

**************************************

************** REASON ****************

I decided to code this app when I bought my Galaxy Nexus: this device doesn't have any physical button on the front screen. Being a quite huge phone, it's quite difficult to press the "turn off" button every time I wanted to turn it off and on. So I needed a way to turn the screen off every time I put it into the pockets and off when removed.

**************************************

************ HOW IT WORKS *************

The app itself is a toggle button, to switch it on just press the App Icon. Then every time you put the phone into your pockets the screen turns off.

If you put the smartphone upside down on the table, the screen turns automatically off.

NOTE: It doesn't lock the screen (just like in a call)

**************************************

************ REQUIREMENTS *************

In order to use Smart Screen Off LITE, you need to have a phone with Proximity Sensor (nowadays every smartphone incorporates one).

    Unfortunately I don't find it reliable enough to use all the time. Seems to no longer be effective after a half hour or so.

    This is a wonderful app. I now save about 30% battery power as the sreen instantly turns off when the Galaxy goes into my pocket. The stupid lock screen never operates and many apps that keep the screen on can now operate with much less drain on battery. The app seems to use light entering the front facing camera to sense how to operate. I continue to use this app and still find it to be highly sa

    Works well, except when a call comes in, the screen does not turn on, could not answer the call. Had to uninstall.

    The reason I purchased the PRO version is to get the Shake On/Off feature, but it is gone? Feature is still shown on Playstore page as well as the user manual. Also a few bugs here and there i.e. Light sensor combo doesn't reset to acquiring status after screen off and is stuck at ON status while proximity delay stops working.

    No frills. Simple to use. Tap icon to activate, tap again to deactivate. (Someone snooping over your shoulder?) Great app for panic situations when you need to blackout your screen immediately. I can't imagine another app doing what this one does, any better. And it's FREE!
