Great for 4.4.3, hopeful for a solution for 5.0 This app was very helpful. I shattered my screen and recently got it replaced and could not figure out what the issue was. I know 5.0 will be coming for my Nexus 4 and hope that this app will be updated to work with L.
The ultimate tool against pocket dialing! An annoying android bug makes my phone's screen turn on and with the standard lock screen you "pocket dial" things like activating airplane mode. This app resolves this in a very geeky way :) Thanks a lot!
Sony Xperia V Really good application a must have, not sure how it will do as far as battery life is concerned but will test and provide feedback. I have however noticed that the application always shows on task manager once you use it to turn on the screen, can this be avoided? It isn't serious but would be nice to prevent it from showing up every time. That's my reason for giving it 4 stars unfortunately.
Turns screen off automatically. Turns the screen off automatically when placed face down or in pocket. No suspicious permissions and payload that I can see other than an unobtrusive ad in the settings screen. I had to configure my sensor values as my phones sensors provided different values to the default (3 for covered, 100 for uncovered), but it provides a really handy sensor graph to find the values. Works great, cheers dev! :) Would have liked an auto on when uncovered but understand why this was possibly impractical.
Used to Work Until 5.0. This used to work when I was on any call on my Nexus 4. Now that 5.0 is out, screen shuts off on every call and won't turn back on. Now, I can't check voicemail or navigate a phone menu without having speaker phone on. Plus, if I'm leaving someone a voicemail, I either have to wait for their vm system to end the call or reboot my phone. Will you guys please fix this? Google clearly won't. 1 Star - 5 for how it used to work x 0 for the fact that it doesn't work anymore + 1 because you guys actually have a useful app here.
Works great on Nexux 5 and Android 5 LollyPop Thanks to the author. It worked like magic. It took me a while to isolate and identify the source of my phone's problems. During phone calls it would randomly start up apps or change settings. I was about to buy a new phone. Now, the screen locks and blanks out during calls when it is close to my head - just like it is supposed to. Thanks again, I bought the pro version.
