Caffeinate works by creating a Tile in your Quick Settings, a feature only available in Android Nougat (7.0) and higher.

    Upon toggling, Caffeinate will keep your screen awake for five minutes (you can increase this timer by tapping the tile, or change the default time in the settings). After times up, your screen will continue sleeping normally.

    Pretty much works exactly like CM's (and now LineageOS') caffeine function.

    A few things to note...
    - Caffeinate posts a notification when activated (and removed when the timer hits zero) in order to prevent the service from being killed. You can disable notifications for Caffeinate by long pressing the notification, and choosing to block all notifications (You'll miss the quick cancel option however!).

    - Due to popular demand, there is no app launcher icon (to get into the actual app to change settings), to open the app, start caffeinating and click the notification. This will be a setting at a later time.

    - Caffeinate is still in beta, and isn't perfect!

    - Caffeinate uses Firebase, in order to report crashes, some analytics, and remote config (A/B testing).

    A/B Testing:
    Want to help the development of Caffeinate? By default, you are! Overtime, we'll use A/B testing to make sure features are working properly. These features are always togglable, to allow you to "force" yourself into or out of the test.

    Currently testing...
    - Nothing at the moment :)

    Had to set it to ignore battery optimizations on my Mate 9, but it works perfectly on my SHIELD Tablet. Great work. I think EMUI is just weird like that.

    Awesome app, been using it for a long time. However, ever I since I upgraded to Android 8, the tile won't work.

    Really simple app, works perfectly, the only thing missing in my eyes would be an indication of how long the timer is set for, whether it were a Toast when you tap the settings icon, or something in the notification.
