Ever wanted to use your favourite app on a locked phone in your pocket but Android paused it as soon as you pressed "Power" button? or You've tried to leave it unlocked but soon was accidentally touched while in a pocket?
Finally solution has arrived;). Simply run this app and while your app is running on the screen hold "Power" button for approx. 1-2 seconds(like You do to display Power off dialog) or choose sensor activation / deactivation and ENJOY;). Your phone is effectively locked and your app is STILL RUNNING;)
Touchscreen and navigation buttons ale inactive to prevent accidental touch (if "Home","Back" or "Menu" buton doesn't get disabled try enabling "NoPause Lock" service in Android accessibility settings).
To unlock simply hold again or use sensors or use regular short presses to put to sleep/wake device.
If any of the navigation buttons is still active after locking and you've got Lolipop (ANDROID 5.0) or higher you can combine this app with "screen pinning" Android feature to prevent your app being switched over by accidental button press
!!! Make sure "Display pop-up window" , "Draw over other apps" or such is allowed in app permissions
