Wake Up Screen is a fun, handy and useful tool app. It allows you to wake up the screen upon shaking the tablet or phone, or by proximity (pausing hand over device - no shakes), or by orientation (flipping device upside down), and saves the power and other buttons used to turn on the device. It works great during cold weather when you have gloves on or when the buttons are defective.

ATTENTION: If the app does not work on your device upon installation due to third party modifications, you can uninstall app within Google Play 15 min trial period to avoid being charged. Reverting to Stock Android or system upgrade might resolve issue. This app has been tested fully functional on devices listed below (list updated regularly).

HELPFUL GUIDE: Tap Settings button to disable/change Notifications or to set customized shake profile settings. ALWAYS deactivate then activate service to apply changes. Tap service LED indicator button for info on adding on/off button widget to HOME screen. To activate service, select shake profile and tap Activate button which will pin the service to the notification status bar and cause a notification sound indicating service is active. To get back to the main app, tap the wake up icon in the status bar. If activated, Wake Up Screen service will remain active even after rebooting tablet or phone. To deactivate service run the app again and tap deactivate button or use the widget button. Tap Help button for full instructions.

SMART APP FEATURE: If the screen wakes up and no user activity detected, the screen goes back to sleep after few seconds! You can easily change sensitivity profiles: wake up the screen as you pick up the device (High Sensitivity) or after few to many shakes (Less Sensitivity)! Service indicator LED and on/off widget button! Battery Saver Period setting (optional)!

1.This app requires shake algorithm enabled devices.
2.This app requires “boot” and “keep screen on” permissions upon installations.
3.This app may not function on rooted devices or third party ROMs that disable “wake screen” activity.
4.This app uses between 4 to 8% of battery power and about 7 MB memory which is very low compared to system use. If needed, you can easily deactivate app processes to save battery use with the service on/off widget button.
5.This app does not alter security settings or lock screen configurations.

Finally: We encourage our users to contact us via email to discuss any concerns or suggestions regarding the app, if any. We cannot address review comments due to the fact that most negative comments that are left without prior contact with the developer are placed with the intent to lower app ratings and misguide the consumer.

    I dumped it... This app was my #1 power hog (71%) cutting my Bionic battery to several hours. This compares to other critical app, such as Android OS (11), Phone Idle (8%), Call Standby (6%).. Food for thought.

    Didn't really work for me on my Nexus 4. Probably just the way I use my phone, carry it in my pocket, etc. May work well on another device.

    Works sporadically. Unfortunately you only get 15 minutes to try it out and it worked well for a short time. Will not buy another app with that limitation.

    Shake options work very well, thus the 4-star rating. However, I was looking for a proximity wake up method which does not work with the Nexus 10, I'm assuming because the device has no such sensor. Maybe the next gen Nexus ten will have the sensor. Uninstalling and asking for refund.

    Power button on Galaxy SII broke a few nights ago and this has been the ONLY app that has worked! Totally worth the $3. Thanks so much!
