ReOn Extra Time SmarterStay

Offers in-app purchases

The screen stays on when you need it. Finally you can read in peace! Works with all brands of phones and tablets.
Note: S for Switch Voice Pro includes this functionality built in.
 
Have you ever been annoyed by the display constantly turning off on you while you were trying to read or watch something?

It turns off → you turn it on right away → it turns off again → you keep turning it back on... GRRRR!

Of course you could set the display timeout higher...
...but then the battery will drain quicker

Samsung owners, you can enable SmartStay which will watch your eyes...
...but only if it's bright enough for it to actually see you
 
Extra Time solves these in a brilliantly simple way: you can set the display timeout to a low enough value, and Extra Time will temporarily extend it when necessary:

RE-ON: when you turn on the screen within 3 seconds after it got turned off, Extra Time will extend the screen timeout, so you can keep reading without worrying about it turning off again (ReOn as in "ON again", get it?)
SMARTER-STAY: it measures the ambient light level, and increases the display timeout if it detects there isn't enough light for SmartStay to work reliably.
►Your original timeout will be restored the next time the screen turns off.
 
Save battery power by having the default display timeout set to the minimum 15 or 30 seconds, and still have the screen on long enough when you need it.
 
USAGE
 
Very simple to use. Just install the app, start it, and forget about it.

Note: Turn off SmarterStay if you don't want the screen timeout to increase when the phone is used in the dark.

Tip: If your phone has the option, enable a few seconds delay for the screen lock, so you wouldn't need to enter your security code if you switch the screen back within a few seconds (see screenshots for Samsung and CyanogenMod).
  
PERMANENT NOTIFICATION
  
Since Android version 4.0, memory resident apps need to inform users (you!) that they reside in memory. Extra Time creates a permanent notification, but no icon is shown unless you pull the notification shade down. It is also possible to hide the notification all together by long pressing on it, selecting "App info" and un-checking the "show notifications" option.

If you decide to keep the notification,
►you will have an easy way to access settings
►the optional toast notification will not appear regardless of the setting
 
PREMIUM UPGRADE
 
The current version of Extra Time will work forever without limitations, but it will remind you of its presence once or twice a week. Please support my work with a buck (one time in app purchase), and you can really forget about the existence of my app, except you will keep enjoying its benefits! Buy once, use it on all your current and future devices!
 
S FOR SWITCH VOICE PRO OWNERS
 
Good news! I decided to include this functionality in the Pro version of S for Switch Voice. You can simply enable it with the option in the settings. You are welcome!
