Doesn't work on 4.3 The app worked great for my note 2 running 4.1.2, but since I've tried a couple different 4.3 roms it doesn't work anymore. I have root and busybox installed but it freezes when I perform the check during setup. If I skip setup and turn the screen off with the app, the lcd flashes full brightness then dims back to normal all while the dimming is "active". Please fix! I used to love this app!
Still doesn't work as well as it should. It seems to work fine the first time I connect to HDMI, but when I unplug it, it doesn't want to release the connection or something because the screen stays off and I can't get it to turn on. The setting screen is also more complicated than it should be and the settings aren't explained well enough. When it's more user friendly and doesn't have issues disconnecting from HDMI, I will rate it 5 stars.
I really like the app. I had to go to xda to download an older stable version since the newest version on google play kept freezing on my phone. But once I got the app installed it was so amazing to watch movies on miracast to my TV for hours without need to charge my phone. I love this app! I wish I could use the screen while the screen is turned off.
Great app, just one issue. I'm trying to assign screen off shortcut to GravityBox's App Launcher, got a toast message saying "Shortcut creation cancelled by target app" and found the shortcut being created on my homescreen - Why does this app have to be so special?! I've never experienced something alike before, please just use the common method to create shortcut.
Wtf Insanely buggy on my rooted galaxy s4. Is it tested for the s4? It turns screen off and I can get it to recognize me clicking menu and back button and sometimes my on screen clicks but the screen never turns back on again. Very frustrating, will see if I can figure it out eventually. Never give up.
Was perfect Sir take a bow! I've been using this app for about a year now in conjunction with ARLiberator for the pioneer Appradio 2. I feel we've gone down a long road in that time. Sure there were quirks and frustration but as of your last update you have absolutely nailed it. I proudly donated for all your hard work and I thank you for letting me and others an awesome entertainment experience. Thanks again great job! Edit as of Android 4.3 ScreenStandby no longer works and doesn't appear to be a fix in site. :/
