About this app

Black Screen lets you play videos with screen off. Turn off the screen anytime and save battery. Black Screen can be used to watch music videos, listen to podcasts, record videos, take selfies, etc. with your screen turned off.

This helps to save battery in AMOLED and OLED devices as the screen is completely off when displaying black color.

Use the floating button to quickly turn off the screen and unlock it by tapping on it.

App Feature List:
• Floating button to quickly lock the screen
• Battery saver on AMOLED & OLED screens
• Play videos, listen to podcasts, record videos, play streams with screen off
• Always-on display option
• Customizable
• Pure black option

Warning: This is not a lock-screen app, it is just a black screen overlay on top of the app you are using. This helps in saving battery on AMOLED devices.

Feature wise, the app is great. It does exactly what I need it to do. But the ads displayed at start up are annoying - especially the full screen ads. And the paid version for removing ads is way too expensive. Even with the current half price sale, the price is more than I'd be willing to pay for such a relatively simple app. Still, I suppose it is better than the apps that now want to change monthly fees forever. Personally, I think $3.99 to $4.99 would be the most I'd be willing to pay.

I paid for youtube premium, it worked well.. Then after quite a few months, it stopped playing on my Samsung lock screen . I tried every trick on videos none worked. In the process I saw several videos for this app. Although I was suspect....Well, it works impeccably every time! Very easy to use and now I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed! 5 stars for sure. Kudos and thanks to the developers !!

Useful app to save battery with YouTube or other sites that don't allow you to lock your phone during use. I listen to podcasts (EFAP) on YouTube, and while working or driving, I can listen without being distracted by the screen by using this app. My only concern is screen burn, with the Always On function showing a clock, static in it's position. Meh.
