This application is designed for people exasperated with the device automatic screen off feature when reading or using android devices.

This service app uses the front facing camera to detect when you are looking at the phone and then makes sure the phone screen stays on!

The coolest feature of Samsung Galaxy devices has been improved and is now available on other android devices!

"+" embedded features for improved reading/watching experience (android 4.1 minimum):
- Night mode: Force screen on (useful when face detection not working - in the dark)
- Rotation off: Lock screen rotation (useful when you use your phone stretched out in the bed)
- Baby mode (donors only): Disable most of the touchscreen (when you give your phone to your baby)

# IMPORTANT: This app is not a malware. Used permissions are explained below

    I like it. It works seamlessly. Sometimes minor strange behaviours, but thats all. :)

    Can't give it a good rating until it works properly with CM11. It works great until you have to use your camera and It consistently takes over the camera ,causing it to crash. I would happily buy the donate version if he fixes this issue!

    It works well for me. I imagine at some point, this will be a standard option for Android.

    Don't install, it will make your camera and gallery corrupt.
