If your tablet or phone’s power button is starting to fail, stop using it and get this app!
POWER ON USING VOLUME KEYS
Using Power On Volume you can wake up your tablet or phone and power on your screen using the physical volume keys on your tablet or phone instead of using a faulty power button.
*** NOW USES MUCH LESS BATTERY POWER ***
Tests showed up to 72% reduction in battery drain compared to previous versions. Battery drain varies by device type and can still be an issue on some devices.
POWER OFF OPTIONS
Using Power On Volume you can power off the screen, lock the screen, and enter power saving sleep mode using three options:
* Waving your hand in front of your device’s proximity sensor (if supported).
* Long pressing the search button (on devices with a search key).
* Pressing a Power Off shortcut icon from your home screen.
* Pressing the Power Off button in the Power On Volume app.
* Pressing a Power Off notification in the notification bar.
The long press search button feature is fully configurable. You can enable and disable this feature, and you can also select other apps to be launched when you long press the search button if they support this feature (such as the Google Voice Search app).
The Power Off shortcut icon can be selected from 16 beautiful HD Power Off icons.
The Power Off feature is compatible with all current versions of Android. Unlike many other apps available, the Power Off function will never turn the screen back on unpredictably like other similar apps are known to do when run on Android OS versions 4.0.4 or 4.1.1.
When the Power Off Proximity function is enabled (on supported hardware), you can turn off your device by waving your hand in front of the proximity sensor or by placing your device face down, putting it in a pocket, etc. Any action that covers the front will turn off your device. The Power Off Proximity function won’t turn off your phone during calls or when the phone is ringing. The Power Off Proximity function doesn’t consume any power when disabled or when the screen is off, saving precious battery life.
The root features require a rooted tablet or phone. If you don’t know was root is, you probably don’t have a rooted tablet or phone.
* Hot Boot: restarts the android GUI (if supported by your rooted system).
* Power Long Press: emulates long pressing the hardware power button.
* Reboot: reboots the device (if supported by your rooted system).
* Reboot Recovery: reboots the device into recovery mode (if supported by your rooted system).
* Shutdown: completely powers down your device
The Hot Boot, Reboot, and Reboot Recovery features rely on busybox and therefore work on most but not all rooted systems. Support for these features depends on the version of busybox installed, and how your rooted system is configured.
WHAT THIS APP DOES NOT DO
* This app cannot power on your tablet or phone’s screen if it’s not in sleep mode. If it is completely shut down, it is impossible for apps to run. Because this is an app, your tablet or phone must be in sleep mode for it to be able to power on the screen.
* This app cannot reboot a tablet or phone that is not rooted.
* This app cannot completely power off a tablet or phone that is not rooted.
*** TABLET/PHONE COMPATIBILITY ***
This app version was tested on ICS, Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Jellybean Android OS versions using select Samsung, Arnova, and Craig phones, tablets, and netbooks and runs well. Some phones/tablets might not work properly with this app. If you experience any problems please contact me for support.
Use the app's built-in "Uninstall" button for an easy uninstall. Uninstalling by other methods can fail.
If you contact me for support and I cannot get the app to work on your tablet or phone after a few attempts I will give you a full refund when requested.
ATTENTION: If the app does not work on your device once you install it due to third party modifications, you can uninstall app within Google Play 15 min trial period to avoid being charged. Most of the time, this can be resolved by performing device upgrade.
The volume up and volume down buttons perform the same functions as the hardware volume buttons.
For quick and easy access to volume control, activate Volume Control by Screen Touch. Then, tap the Volume Bar or Volume Indicators to control volume. Long-tap Screen Touch Volume Bar to drag to desired location. Volume Control Bar location, indicators and other settings can be changed under Settings screen by tapping Settings button.
Another option for Android 3.x (Honeycomb) and higher, pin the app to the notification status bar. Then simply tap the speaker icon in the status bar to adjust the volume. (see photos)
Notification sound and Toast messages can be enabled/disabled under Settings.
When activated, the volume control screen touch bar and status bar volume control will restart after rebooting the device. So, permission to system tool (automatically start at boot) is requested during installation.
You can deactivate screen touch volume control bar or unpin the volume control from the status bar at any time by running the main app again.
Finally: We encourage our users to contact us via email to discuss any concerns or suggestions regarding the app, if any. We cannot address review comments due to the fact that most negative comments that are left without prior contact with the developer are placed with the intent to lower app ratings and misguide the consumer.

Install "Volume & Brightness Control" adds the shortcut to your home screen and then you access to the settings menu volume and brightness very quickly.
"Volume & Brightness Control" is a very simple application. His development has been motivated because several situations of "disaster",as for example, to open a game in a place where silence is required and didn't knowing that the multimedia phone volume was at maximum, or change the volume without the device have to sound at the moment; but also by the mere fact to modify the brightness, to save battery, using only 2 "clicks" (click on the icon "Volume & Brightness Control" and slide the brightness bar).
