Excellent app, functions without fail (Update: Is not compatible with Android 5.0 Lollipop) This app works like a charm on my Moto X+1. You can select which apps you want your phone to stay awake for plus set the illumination the apps will have while they're open (full or minimal). Keepscreen only runs when the app(s) you've selected are fullscreen. Minimize those apps and Keepscreen stops, bring them back up and Keepscreen starts again. A brief notification at the top of the screen can inform you of each action. It's perfect for apps like Spotify and Maps.when used while driving. Highly recommend it!
Excellent app. Exactly what I needed I'm using an HTC Amaze. You load this app in the background. You select the programs you want the app to keep on without the screen going black on you. You select the brightness level you want to maintain. You turn on the app and that's it. If you already had your browser open for example, you close and reopen it. There are no CONS. Do be careful if you put the phone in your pocket and forget the app is running. The screen will stay on and you will feel the phone heat up. I can't say enough positive things!
This app works great, but not with Android 5.x unfortunately I used this app for a couple years on different devices and Android versions and it's been great. LG G3 upgraded to Lollipop and it's not working any more. Sad face. If this can get upgraded that'd be AWESOME. :)
Works Great! People say it doesn't work because they're not pressing start service after selecting their browser in the app list. Once you do that your screen won't dim and turn off. Smart stay only works when you're looking at the screen. This app allows you to put the phone down and still watch a flash video.
Was useful... Was one of those little apps that does one specific thing well - at least on KitKat it did. Now it's broken in Lollipop. Really too bad. I haven't uninstalled yet 'cause I'm hoping it'll get fixed.
At last! An app that finally stops my display from turning off! I've tweaked every possible setting, but my phone's display just turns off automatically when I enter some codes to be sent to my service provider. This app wprks perfectly! I highly recommend it to everyone who's annoyed with screens that just turn off just when you need it.
pre update before android 4.1, minor bugs update
Keeps your device on, awake and unlocked (by Activity, App or Button Click).
