---------------------

We're so excited that Power Button to Volume Button has over 1,500,000 downloads!!! The most popular app in its category!!!

If your Android's power button is broken then this app is for you! Totally free, no annoying ads!

With this really nifty app running on your Android, you can use the volume button instead of the power button to wake up your device!

IF YOU WANT TO UNINSTALL THIS APP go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators and remove the app from the device administrator list. Then you will be able to unable to install the app as you normally would. If you are wondering why the app was on the administrator's list to begin with, it's because only apps that are device administrators can turn on and off the screen. You actually opted-in to this, but probably didn't bother to read the relevant messages when the app asked for this permission...

Please note that you may experience a power drain on the battery. This comes with the territory of keeping your device awake at all times in order to enable the volume button to perform the power button function. With recent updates to the Android operating system - this is the only way to do it.

If this app is run without the screen off setting, then the long term behavior of this app becomes unpredictable, as it is subject to the operating system's whims to reclaim memory. We recommend that you enable the 'screen off in notification bar' feature if you plan to use the app for long periods of time.

Does Nothing. Dragons Battery Fast. this is the only thing I've installed for months, and I installed it 2 days ago. it does absolutely nothing, and I have checked it's only two settings and rebooted twice. the volume key remains the volume key, with no changes to it or the power key whatsoever. there is a constant notification that it is active, which allows you to turn off the screen.. that works, but it's useless. my battery which usually lasts a day and a half, now lasts 2 hours

I find this a great alternative to the power button especially since my power button is broke. One minor gripe I do have with this is that turning on the screen with the volume button doesn't work if "Do not disturb" is on, or if the volume is already at 0% or 100%. If those issues were fixed, this would definitely get a 5 star rating.

Horrible, misleading app! Like so many people, I installed this as my phone's power button broke. This app DOES NOT allow your volume button to replace the power button! It simply puts a notification in the task bar to lock the screen. Worst still, you can't uninstall or deactivate it, even after following the developer's instructions. And yes, I actually díd read the pop-up screen. Nowhere does it imply that the app can't be uninstalled or deactivated with simple methods. DON'T DOWNLOAD!
