Wow! Great app! Simple, battery life doesn't seem to be an issue, and works reliably. Thanks for this app. I tried six apps before this with disappointing results, bit this app delivered. Simple icon in your notification menu to lock the screen and unlock the screen with a press of your volume Button. My 2 yr old phone might live to see another year without needing an actual fix. Once again, great app!
Saved my nexus-5 Got a broken power button. Without this app it was either : 1. plug it in and out, or 2. ask someone to call me as option to turn it on. And waiting for it to go to sleep by itself. Inconvenient. Now, I can use the volume button. But, yeah, the app drains the battery pretty quickly. Still worth 4 stars.
It was great, but then... I loved this app wholeheartedly, it did exactly what was promised! The app worked anytime I needed it to, I also did not notice any difference with the battery life of my tablet. But ever since the new update this app has not worked at all, no matter how many times I've tried. So I decided to look at some reviews; as others encountered the same problem. I chose to uninstall the app, then reinstall to fix the problem. The app didn't work, it doesn't even pop up on my notification box to turn off my screen.
Wouldn't turn on screen long enough I have a Samsung galaxy exhibit (sgh-t599n). This app only turned on my screen long enough to see a flash of light. I couldn't unlock my phone. It drains the battery and just wasn't worth downloading. Now I can't uninstall it or disable it. Does anyone else have my phone? How did you get rid of this app?
Battery Drainer it works but sometimes it crash . also it consumes a lot of battery power . my phone now gets easily drained . its a nice app but please make it battery friendly . thanks
my Nexus 5 was stuck in an endless loop of powering up. I managed to keep it on just long enough to install the app. Havent had a problem since. yes it does drain your battery faster but its a small price to pay compared tp getting the phone fixed or buying a new one. I like my phone and will use it until I have squeezed all the life out of it.
March - improved battery retention. 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. We're doing our best to make sure that you get the most out of this app!
Protect home button & volume button, access all setting quickly, speed booster.
