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.

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.

NOTE: due to Google's ever more restrictive policies, under Android Q an app can no longer launch another activity.
Therefore, when running Android Q+, Proxi can only execute a limited version of 'Off (internal)'.
You may, however, download a legacy version from the app list on the 'Privacy Policy' page.

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
CAMERA: disable turning off the screen when the camera is open

and, when using the onboard 'Off without lock':
WRITE_SETTINGS: temporarily change the sleep timeout (non-root)

ROOT (optional): turn off immediately (rooted devices only)

Privacy statement
----------------------------
Proxi does not collect data and no data leaves your device in any way.
