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.

Has nice features such as motion sensitivity settings, etc. . However it was not reliable. Kept randomly not working. . Even though I enabled it to launch at boot, it did not work. After rebooting I always had to re-launch it. . Seemed to interfere with manually unlocking my screen using the finger print sensor. Half the time, the sensor just would not work. After uninstalling Gravity Screen, it is back to working much more reliably.

I was able to put this on my X8 Ultra Chinese Android watch to turn the screen off and on with a flick. Sensitivity 15. Seems to work pretty good and prevents having to continually press the button. 1 star off because I keep getting an alert it's running in the background that I can't shut off. Google voice does the same thing but I was able to turn that alert off. Also, it's a little difficult to use the sliders due to the small touchscreen. A +/- buttton to move up and down would be nice.

If your phone's power button is broken, don't waste any time, get this app. It's an absolute life saver. It's VERY simple and straightforward, anyone could get use out of it. Default settings work perfectly fine for me. The one "issue" I've had with it is that it doesn't exactly support fingerprint scanners. There's an option to enable such support, but I've found it doesn't actually turn off the display or lock my phone.
