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.

This has been a great app for unlocking my phone. Set up is fast and easy. There are optional settings for you to tweek based on the way you want your screen to respond in certain situations. I've been using this app for years with no problems whatsoever. It's great for prolonging the life of your phone's side button too. No ads! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

6yrs later, Droid 12, still works perfectly with every function Seller has been on Vaca for 3 years, I hope our dev, keeps this nice and polished Edit; one year later, still Loving this app With precise adjustments I get to tune the angles and proximity sensors to work perfectly for my use. Makes using my device on the fly for music so much easier. Developer is easily accessible and will help me with anything.

I'm adding this comment to my glowing review: (since upgrading to Android 10, this app disables the ability to unlock my phone with the fingerprint sensor. Hopefully, a fix is coming.)So far, I'm enjoying this app. I've tried many apps that turn off the screen, but then you can't unlock the phone with a fingerprint. This app is what I've been looking for. Also, this replaced another app that kept the screen on while I was reading.
