Great App... read more if you want. The app does work now after tinkering around. It's hard to get it set up the way you want with all the options. Simplicity is best. I didn't like that the app has to see my usage stats but the developer responded back to me in a timely fashion and gave me the reasonable explanation which was Google forces it not them. I've been a long time user of this app so I'm going to stick with it and as long as the developers continues to care the way they do then I'll support them.
I used to like it. Now it doesn't work on Marshmallow Android 6.0.1 Xiaomi Mi 4. Solution for users: MacroDroid. It’s an automation app that can do virtually ANYTHING. Really, almost anything. With that I can keep my device’s screen ON. MacroDroid can change the device’s sleep time to any value, based upon whatever trigger/condition; simple conditions or very complicated conditions. E.g. set sleep time to 30 minutes when XYZ app starts, but only if external power source is attached. When app is closed or goes to background, or external power is detached, change back sleep time to 1 minute.
Doesn't seem to completely work on my new phone On my Droid Turbo it worked great(hence the 4 stars) but on my new Moto Z it doesn't stay on indefinitely. It definitely keeps the screen on longer, but it eventually dims and then shuts off. The old phone ran lollipop and the new one is on marshmallow, that could potentially be the root cause as I know marshmallow is supposed to be better with power saving so it may be "over powering" SA
Awesome app I'm using a Nexus 6. I'm in school and use my phone as a calculator. It gets old having to unlock the phone every time I need to use it. I don't want the screen to stay on at any other time than when I'm using the calculator. This app allows me to choose specific apps to stay awake for. I simply selected the calculators I use and they stay on when I'm using them. It even allows the screen to dim (this is an option, but not mandatory), but keeps the screen awake. Has worked perfectly.
Great Utility This should be built into Android! Super fast developer response. App detection is fixed with this update. The clock screen still doesn't work properly here though. It flashes back to the running app each clock refresh so I've reverted to black screen. Two versions ago, this actually worked flawlessly here on 5.1.1 on Samsung S6.
Doesn't work HTC 10 Used this my my galaxy S6 and worked perfectly even after marshmallow update but on my HTC 10 the screen will not turn off on its own. I have to constantly check to make sure something did not wake up my phone so it doesn't stay on but with that part said it does keep the screen on for every app but just because it's broken.
