Proxi - proximity (screen off) app launcher

Everyone
8

Proxi is a service that monitors the proximity sensor.
When the screen is on and the sensor detects proximity, an (optional) sound notifies the start of an (adjustable) delay.
If the proximity still exists after this delay, the selected app is launched. Any non-system app can be chosen.
Note: under Android Q+ only a limited version of 'Off (internal)' can be launched.

Proxi comes with an onboard copy of the app 'Off without lock', which turns off the screen. See its Play Store description for further details.

If enabled, Proxi will turn on the screen on loss of proximity (this option may increase standby battery consumption).

IMPORTANT PERMISSIONS
-------------------------------------------
READ_PHONE_STATE: disable turning off the screen during a call

and, when using the onboard 'Off without lock':

Privacy statement
