Have used this for over a year across multiple android versions/custom Roms/kernels. Love the look I get when I wave my hand over my phone (fingers spread is about 50ms) and my phone turns on or off. Has preserved my power button - sheer number of times I've used this vs the power button is staggering. And a bad power button is a big deal for power users of a 3 button phone. Well worth the low cos

... that does exactly what it advertises flawlessly. I've used on my last five phones. Exceeds all expectations. I'm over 3,400 power button saves on my Note 3. I've had it 6 months.

Nothing works as advertised. there is no widget for soft off. Going to get a refund. Prox. sensor is slow and unresponsive. Close It on off works best out of all these apps.edit: now i can not even uninstall the app because it says its an administrator although its unchecked in settings. what a scam.

I was hopeless trying to find an app to use my phone while my lock button is broken and it worked perfectly, highly recommend it!

The Only App I found that "really works" Thanks to the "Hold & Swipe".I have tried a number of sensor aided apps to turn on screens - unfortunately - they all turn the screen on way more than needed - like accidental screen ons which cost a lot of battery life. However the "Hold & Swipe" on this one means you have to do 2 gestures to get the screen on (do not worry - it does not take time - only

This has worked for all my Samsung phones (captivate, galaxy nexus, Galaxy S3)- but for the LG Nexus 5, it doesnt seem to pick up the waves very well. This might be due to the phone. Otherwise 4 stars- I knock one off simply b/c it would be nice to have this somehow more usable with a lock screen setup. Pushing the power button typically does not lock the screen if you have a default timeout,

Looking for a gesture based screen wake up app. This looks promising. A bit dated though

Tried the lite version first but soon bought this since it really is a fine product and I now use it all the time. recommended. Dev.: please make it compatible with Nexus7

UPDATE: TouchControl + franco.Kernel is MUCH better than this app! TouchControl really wakes up by swiping on the screen or tapping, and this with very little battery usage. While this app (Smart Screen On) uses more battery and requires you to wave the finger precisely above the proximity sensor (the little circle on top right of the phone). OLD REVIEW: Tried the free and wanted to support the d

I never realized how often the power button had to be pressed throughout the day. This app saved my "power button addiction". Additionally, as someone with mild carpal tunnel symptoms, less physical button pressing helps a lot! Thank you for this app :)

Not working on Samsung note 3..pls fix it. I use the purchased version which works well on Note 2

"SHAKE SCREEN ON" APP....is sooo much better! Itll blow your mind..its simple to use AND ITS FREE. GO TRY CHECK IT OUT, SERIOUSLY! This one is a JOKE. IT does NOT turn screen on. All around poorly designed and described. And refuse to issue me a refund. GREEDY SCAMMERS. Read through full description, it's says twice in one sentence "ability to turn phone off"..... NOT ON!
