No longer stays awake Since update constantly having to wake phone up. When before the update all u had to do is turn the app on and that was it. Now every time I change screens from message, Internet, music player etc. The app turns off and I have to restart it. And I've also tried checking each app but it still doesn't work.
Not a single one of these apps I've tried has been able to handle app detection reliably. This one works about 10% of the time, and the rest of the time it either doesn't work at all, or comes on for about a second after the app is launched and then goes away. All it's good for is manual operation via the notification bar switch. I wish the geniuses at Google would just integrate this functionality onto the OS already.
Could be great A simple app but a huge help. When it works, it does it's job flawlessly. However, there appears to be a bug that will stop it from working even when I manually turn it on. For example, I set up for it to turn on automatically for certain apps in use and it will just disappear like I turned it off when I am still using the app. The on icon will disappear. On moto x 2nd generation edit: was hoping for an update to fix it's lack of staying awake but it hasn't happened
N Notification Needs Fix Works great on Android N preview, except the drop down notification is squished and cuts off the bottom half of the text.
Tiny Improvement An excellent progam that does exactly what it promises. However I am the forgetful type and I cant tell you how many times I have killed my battery by leaving it on. There is a setting to autoshutoff when manually putting screen off with power button I know. May I suggest adding an option to also autoshutoff after a user choosen period of time.
Best implementation Keeping the screen awake when an app is running or under other conditions isn't too complicated but somehow every other app I found had an oddly restricted feature set and a sloppy UI. Not to mention they didn't seem to work if the app wasn't in the foreground. This app is fully featured, implements everything as flexibly and cleanly as possible, and has a much nicer UI than other products. Not as objectively the name is also a decent choice, other apps had worse branding than UI.
