Proximity Screen Locker BETA

Screen won't eat your battery if you press power button accidentally while your phone is in your pocket or bag.
It measures proximity value and turns off the screen when there is something close to the proximity sensor (in the front of the screen).
If screen is covered and power button is pressed, the screen will flash short and it will turn off screen - saves your battery.
To test if it works you need to lock your phone, cover the Proximity sensor (top corner usually) and then try to turn on the screen again. It should turn off soon and vibrate (so you know it works).
This app REQUIRES your ADMIN rights on the phone to lock the screen. It's the way Android architecture is created. And it's good, because you always know when this app is enabled to lock the screen and when it's not.
NOTE, that you need to remove this app from admins before you can uninstall it. Please go here to do so: Settings->Security->Device administrators
