Simple and Effective I couldn't readily tell where the proximity sensor was and this simple tool helped. Mainly for the other app that wakes my screen up when proximity sensor is covered (without having to use my power button hard to reach under the shell case each time)
This app just tells me there is a Proximity sensor but never helps me locate it. It is stuck on waiting for data, I have tried to cover the whole device as instructed but no luck, maybe it is not active. I have an RCT-1000p 10.1 inch tablet running android kit-kat 4.4.
Works, thanks! Why the permissions? The proximity sensor on my new phone was in an unintuitive place on the left, I had always assumed it was on the right like my previous phone, so this neat app helped me understand why my screen stayed on during calls (large phone, hard for such a sensor to be covered by a right ear!) But why the permissions? Hope you aren't snooping too much/leaving me spam, you'll spoil an otherwise great app
Great app Wanted to test my sensor after replacing the screen on my phone. The sensor is working great even though I covered it with tape. No idea how it functions but happy I don't have to take it apart again :)
Does its task very well. But now that I've found the sensor with it's help, I have no use left for it. Uninstalling, but definitely 5 stars.
Does exactly what it says on the tin Confirmed that I have a proximity sensor. Located it. Confirmed that mine reports on our off, not distance. Perfect.
2.1 Minor bug fix for the rare occasion that user preferences get corrupted.
2.0 Covered proximity is now configurable for devices that incorrectly report covered sensor proximity at greater than zero cm. Power consumption is reported if available. Invalid sensor maximum range is handled more smoothly.
1.1 Minor bugfix
1.0 First public release
0.9 Optimized battery usage down to the minimum
0.8 Sensor covered counter added
