About this app

It turns automatically the screen off when you put your phone into your pocket or onto a table. And turns the screen on when you take it out or up. No need to touch any button and you are ready to go. It's especially helpful if your lock key is hard to reach or the power button is broken.

The most popular screen on/off app. Reviewed by LifeHacker, MakeUseOf, TheNextWeb, Gizmodo and many others ...

WARNING:If the app is killed by the OS after some time visit:

• Pocket Sensor: Turns the screen off if your phone is in your pocket.
• Table Sensor: Detects your phone is lying on a table and turn it off if not in use.
• Turn Screen On by Motion: If the screen is off and it's facing up the device can be woken up by moving it.
• Keep Screen On by Motion - Rise to Wake: It keeps the screen on while you are watching the screen. It relies on the small movements of your hand while holding the device.
• Smart Lock support: It's a workaround to make the Smart lock feature work fine on devices with Lollipop.
• Locale plug-in for: Tasker, Llama and others

• Better performance
• Widgets, Shortcuts
• Wider range for Rise to Wake Timeout
• Wider range for Table Sensor
• Suspend in Landscape mode
• Exclude Apps option


It should be not significant. I experienced about 6 per cent extra consumption on the test device. However it can be much higher by often using the Rise to Wake feature. Thus, keep your phone face down if you want to save energy.


Please, use the Uninstall button in the app. Due to Android restriction the app cannot be uninstalled on a normal way.

EDIT: Android 12 update does not play well with it. Switched to an S22 Ultra, and it seemed to work fine again, but now the June update seems to have killed it again. Won't turn off the screen at all, though it shows that it's reading the position sensor perfectly fine. Also doesn't always switch on after a reboot. Sigh.

Like it, but it keeps vibrating my phone everytime I unlock it or go into apps that are excluded and not excluded. Wish I could turn that feature off but couldn't figure it out. It's not the OS settings because I scoured through everything and tested it. It's the app itself. I tried toggling the notification from it to 'off' but still it does not work. I'm almost at the point of uninstalling it because of how annoying it is.

Works most of the time. However, I have a samsung a10e and sometimes, when the phone goes to sleep, it does not wake up by motion or angle. Instead, I need to press the power button. May be a slight glitch, but this is not a significant enough issue not download this app or uninstall. The benefit of the app is 99 percent of not having to use the button.
