Essential app for heavy users. I am constantly picking up my phone & messing with it. Up, down, up, down...like attending a Catholic mass. Screebl saves my power button. Set timeout to Minimal or 5 seconds and never use the power button to turn off screen again! And developer is very quick to respond to emails. I wish all devs were so attentive.
Works great on my Nexus 5X with the exception that the icon does not have a color fill unless you pull down the notification panel. It still keeps my screen on while I use it and shuts the ho down 5 seconds after laying flat. On my galaxy s5 it is either killed or turns itself off but that phone is high as a McDonald's sign (off of custom ROMS and random super user permission requests that is). Every app on that phone gets a free 5 stars, this app, Screebl Pro earns it's 5 stars. However, I feel the name would be better if it were 'Screeb!'. But, as they say 'opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one'. Take care, God bless!
Eats battery As a very long time user I decided to pay for the pro version. Unfortunately it was the number one drain on my note 3 battery so I had to go back to the free version. It's a great program but it should be better after you pay not worse.
A must on every Android phone. I cannot use Android without Screebl. Screens turn off when you're reading and not touching the screen, which happens often. Screebl prevents the screen from turning off and it does it so well, that you forget it's running. The only issue is with the notification icon in Android M, where it doesn't update range status.
This app is getting boring fast Why the hell do I need to open the app every 5 minutes to re-enable it. Also make it so it is still enabled after every update, this is getting extremely annoying now.
Sony stock smart backlight is better. I don't know what sensors and algo Sony uses, but it works in all situations and without hassle. Screebl is just full of problems and problems compared to that. The position of proximity sensor in Xperia Z had rendered this app useless to me because Screebl pocketlock triggers in all orientations. Now in my Z2, the sensor has been moved, but I don't need anything other than Sony smart backlight anymore.
3.0.50 - Sorry for the thrash! This should do it for now. Fix a few more issues on some devices.
3.0.48 - Turn off foreground service, for those that insist on removing notifications!
3.0.45 - Proximity bug, in-call functionality
3.0.34 - This is a ground-up rewrite of Screebl, focusing on hardware, battery consumption, new features, and stability.
Note: If you wish to continue using Screebl 2.x, "Screebl Classic" is available in the Google Play Market for free download.
