    ScreenWakeUp's review

    Published: 2012-06-05, by .

    ScreenWakeUp uses the proximity sensor to lock and wake up the screen

    • Useful
    • Really works
    • Highly configurable
    • It can be unlocked by accident

    "Unlock your device with a jedi hand move"

    Some devices that today would be called "low-end" devices had some issues with the lockscreen button. Perhaps due to that ScreenWakeUp came up: an app for unlocking without touching any button, just moving your hand over it or when taking your device from the pocket.

    Although it was probably its main use, it's still an app that can be useful even if your lockscreen button works properly. Lock and unlock quickly or even tease your friends making a jedi hand move over your phone to unlock it. You can lock the screen by long pressing on search key or by covering the proximity sensor on the top of the phone for a few seconds (or putting it in your pocket).

    NOTE: Before uninstall you must release the lock admin (run ScreenWakeUp and select on "release lock admin").

    The app works great, and it's highly configurable: set lock in call, lock in landscape, auto-unlock, lock screen after X seconds... and much more. The only catch: it can be unlocked sometimes by accident. Anyway, recommendable.

    Great app. Exactly what I was looking for to allow me to easily and quickly check my notifications when the phone is flat on the desk. So far so good. Thanks.

    It won't let my phone sleep! As soon as my screen goes dark, it automatically wakes it up without me touching or going near my phone!

    Power button saver! Nexus 6 almost decommissioned due to flaky power button was saved! Thanks.
