♿ Invaluable! I can't live without this app! I'm in a power chair full time and my phone sits in a RAM Cellphone Mount. It's annoying having to unlock the phone every time I want to glance at it. The chair has a USB charger, except the chair shuts off after 30 minutes and I'd rather not turn it back on every 30 minutes, just to keep my phone's screen on. I can configure the Screen On app to keep my phone's screen on, regardless of power, but it shuts off before the battery is too low! 😎

Since going to Pie I could not figure out how to prevent the screen from dimming while charging even though I have the always-on developer option enabled. I just want it to stay on AND bright while plugged in, and this app takes care of that. Nice options too for how and when it is enabled. Too bad this stuff just isn't integrated into the OS.

love this app! it works exactly as described in my Google Pixel 2, simple and easy to use with a variety of options. I added a button to my notification area so with a swipe and a tap i can enable Screen On. My small gripe is that as soon as it is enabled, it uses a persistent notification which clutters the notifications. UPDATE: changed to 5 stars after Dieter explained the background service: it is needed to listen to global events like headset plugged, screen off, etc.

What's new

- Enable for selected apps fixed for Android 11

- Notification Screen On won't work on Samsung devices with Android 10. It will work on other devices with Android 10 (excluding Huawei, Xiaomi and One Plus). I can not change this, as the manufacturers modified Android so th wakelock Screen On uses, does not work (Must likely due to power saving issues). Sorry for any inconveniences.
