Proximity Sensor Finder tells you a few things about your device:
1. Does the device have a proximity sensor?
2. Is an object in close proximity detected?
3. Does this device support actual proximity distances or just "covered" and "uncovered" sensor states?
4. For supported devices, exactly how far away is the object?
5. How long has the sensor been covered?
6. How much power is the proximity sensor consuming?
We developed Proximity Sensor Finder as an internal testing tool but it soon became apparent that there was a need in the market for just such an app, so we decided to ship it and make it free!
Internet and location permissions requested are just for ads, no other data is transmitted or received.
1) Turn off the screen by sliding your hand
2) Turn off the screen by Covering the sensor for a duration of time (Tap and Hold)
3) Turn on the screen by Covering the sensor for a duration of time (Tap and Hold) - Note: This can cause Battery Drain
4) Enable screen on/off during calls only
5) ScreenOff shortcut, to turn off the screen by launching the app.
6) Based on your device select the sensor of your choice, or the one that's available and configure their values, as they are different for different devices.
Motivation to build this app:
1) While the phone is in pocket, and you have your bluetooth headset connected, even though you can answer your call with a click of bluetooth headset button, because the screen goes on and remains on, your call may hang-up or go on hold or probably few buttons may get pressed, isn't that annoying?
2) Lot of android phones don’t turn off the screen when phone is held close ear (You may end up hanging up on someone)
3) Accidental call pickups: Since capacitive screens are sensitive to touch as well as heat, An Incoming call gets picked up automatically when phone is in the pocket (And we get obliged to speak to annoying calls)
4) Its Cool!!!
5) If you are a HD2 user, you would know the pain. Many users have replaced that hardware buttons due to usage!!!
NOTE: To un-install, go Settings, Locations & Security, Select Device Administrators and disable the ScreenOff App
For Support: Post you questions on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=9884280#
1) HD2, Desire HD, Nexus One, Motorolla Xoom(Light Sensor), DROID Incredible
If you have problems with your proximity sensor? Or the screen stays black after a call. It's most likely the sensor, this app will fix that.

The most popular screen on/off app. Reviewed by LifeHacker, MakeUseOf, TheNextWeb and many others ...
• Pocket Sensor: Turns the screen off if your phone is in your pocket.
• Table Sensor: Detects your phone is lying on a table and turn it off if not in use.
• Turn Screen On by Motion: If the screen is off and it's facing up the device can be woken up by moving it.
• Keep Screen On by Motion: It keeps the screen on while you are watching the screen. It relies on the small movements of your hand while holding the device.
• Smart Lock support: It's a workaround to make the Smart lock feature work fine on devices with Lollipop.
• Locale plug-in for: Tasker, Llama and others
UNLOCKED by IN-APP PURCHASE
• Better performance
• Widgets, Shortcuts
• Wider range for Turn Screen On by Motion Timeout
• Wider range for Table Sensor
• Suspend in Landscape mode
• Exclude Apps option
It should be not significant. I experienced about 6 per cent extra consumption on the test device. However it can be much higher by often using the Turn Screen On by Motion feature. Thus, keep your phone face down if you want to save energy.
Please, use the Uninstall button in the app. Due to Android restriction the app cannot be uninstalled on a normal way.
1. By detecting p-sensor, automatically turn on/off the screen for you.
2. Allows you to only enable the function during charging.
3. Allows you to disable the feature when the screen is rotated.
4. You can set separate timeout values for screen on/off delay to prevent from accidentally triggering the feature.
5. A widget is supported to quickly toggle the function.
6. Notification is supported to quickly toggle function, or directly turn screen off.
7. Power Save Mode: works on some devices. Try if it works for YOU!
8. Play sound or vibrate while close.
9. Exclude apps you don't want automatically screen off feature
10. A widget to turn off screen! great power saver yet useful
0. Modify Settings in "Auto Screen Settings" app and enable the function
1. Add widget "AutoScreenOnOff" to your home screen
2. Press once on the icon to trigger Device Management Confirmation Dialog.
3. Agree to activate device management. (This is required to turn off the screen)
4. Now everything should work now. Try cover your hand over the top area of the screen (where the proximity sensor might be located) to see if it works.
- Since it uses proximity sensor to detect whether the screen should be on or off, this may use some power consumption. So, if you are not using your device for a long time, suggest you turning off the function.
- If you wants to uninstall the app, please do it from top of the app.

2. Screen lock/unlock sound effect
3. Screen off vibration
For those who cannot see the screen off animation even the app is reinstalled, please follow the procedures below:
Android 4.x: Go to "Setting > Developer options > Transition animation", and then select 1x for this option.
Android 2.x, Make sure you selected the option "All animations" under "Settings > Display > Animation".
You'll be able to test the following:
Accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, proximity sensor, pressure sensor... You'll be able to check which sensors are supported by your phone and all the information and values provided for each sensor.
You'll be able to check your LAN status: internal & external IP, gateway, DHCP server...
Signal, network type, external IP, SIM data...
You'll see the real data provided by the GPS: satellites, latitude, longitude, altitude, speed...
Level of charge, time on, temperature, health...
How many points of contact does your device recognize?
Information about hardware and software like CPU, RAM, kernel version, screen...
This app is similar to EVEREST or AIDA64, but apart from showing the components and system information, it also shows sensors readings.
The Pro version of Phone Tester displays more information (CPU speed, phone memory, sd card memory) and removes the ads.
- Gyroscope Sensor
Gyroscope sensor can measure six directions at a time. You will be able to see the effects immediately by rotating your phone slightly. Now Gyroscope sensor is mostly used in 3D game development, and possibly indoor navigation in future.
- Light Sensor
Light sensor is applied to detect the light intensity of the environment, and then adjusts screen brightness and determines whether to turn off the keyboard light. Test the effect by putting your phone in dark place and retrieving it.
- Orientation Sensor
Orientation sensor is applied to detect direction status of the device, i.e. auto rotate screen when device is rotated horizontally. It can also be used as measure equipment like Spirit Level.
- Proximity Sensor
Proximity sensor measures the distance between two objects, usually the device screen and our hands/face etc. Test the effect by moving your hand forward and backward in front of the device in Sensor Box for Android.
- Temperature Sensor
Temperature sensor provides information about your device temperature, thus you can take action when the temp is too low or high.
- Accelerometer Sensor
Accelerometer sensor is applied to detect device directions, i.e. auto rotate screen when the device is rotated vertically. It is also widely used in game development.
Sound detects the sound intensity around you and provides you detailed information about the intensity changes.
- Magnetic Field
Magnetic Field is used in many areas like metal detection and compass, which bring us lot convenience in our life.
Pressure is used to detect environmental pressure, thus to forecast weather and temperature.
Sensor Box for Android only detects changes. It may not show the correct temperature, proximity, light and pressure values if no changes occur.
For better performances, sensors are usually used together. Check out the live demonstration inside the application! Any feedback the email address below is the best way to get in touch with us.
** back to the users directly which is very sad so let me help you if my app gave you a problem. You can still leave a ** negative feedback but still, please let me help. You can email me through this page or through the app. Thanks!
Ever considering having a Smart Cover feature for your Android Device? Now you can!!
This application allows you to Turn On your screen after removing it from cover.
Gentlemen, do you keep your device in your pockets? Check your device status immediately after taking it out without pressing any buttons!!
Ladies, do you keep your device in your bag? This application will turn on your screen for you without you having to reach for the buttons!
Might you be using a Device Wallet which also acts as a Cover?
** Turn on your Screen and automatically unlock!!
** Turn on/off your screen without using Power or Home buttons.
** Perform magic tricks. ^_^
** Disable in Landscape mode
** Beep option when turning on/off screen (Thanks Brian)
** Choice of tone for the above feature (Thanks Novak, Andreas)
** Vibrate option when turning on/off screen (Thanks Ignatius)
** Due to the sensitivity of the Proximity Sensor, I strongly suggest not to use the function turn off screen by this application. To turn off the feature, just set the duration to -1 seconds.
Instead, I suggest that you use another application to lock your screen. Here, I suggest using "Lock Screen Now" which is also developed by me. There are also many other Lock Screen applications which you can find on Google Play.
** Do note that this application requires proximity sensor to work.
** Requires Device Administrator for the Turn Off screen feature.
** To UNINSTALL this application, you have to first remove the Device Administrator rights for this application. When you choose to uninstall this application, it will prompt you to remove the Device Administrator Rights. If not, please go to Settings > Security > Device Administrator > Uncheck this application.
Enables the "double tap to wake" feature that the Nexus 6 shipped with. It requires root, so you must unlock your bootloader and root before using this.
The built in implementation of double tap to wake isn't perfect. Some users have indicated that if their device has been sleeping for a while, it isn't always reliable. It is very unlikely to cause harm to your Nexus 6, but extensive longterm testing has not yet been done. By downloading now, you are accepting the liability if something were to go wrong. Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any questions.
* Enhanced error checking.
* If a non rooted device opens this application, it should no longer crash.
* Small formatting changes.
* Settings now persist through reboot.
* Changed name from "Doubletap to Unlock" to "Doubletap to Wake".
* Updated Icon. Doesn't look amazing, but it's better than it was.
* Updated some text.
* Implemented the ability to turn on or off Double Tap to Wake
In order to use the proximity sensor simply install the application and enable monitoring service. Once it enabled you can turn on the screen by touching and releasing the proximity sensor.
In order to use soft-button for turning off the screen drag and drop the "WTN Turn Off" launcher from list of your applications to the home screen and press it. It may ask for "Device Administrator" activation for the first time. You have to activate it, otherwise it will not be able to turn off the screen.
As alternative way you can turn off the screen by pressing notification icon if it was enabled in settings.
IMPORTANT! You must deactivate Device Administration before uninstalling the app, otherwise you will not be able to uninstall it. You can do that directly from the application settings dialog (go to WTN Settings >> General Settings and uncheck the "Device Administrator" check-box) or you can do it directly from Settings dialog of your device (go to Settings >> Security >> Device administrators and uncheck the "Turn Off the Screen")

How to uninstall app :
You can click on Uninstall button,
A screen filter basically is meant to decrease the brightness of your screen below its minimum system-allowed level, so it would not hurt your eyes when you use your device in the dark. It also saves quite a lot of battery power on devices with AMOLED screens. However, all of the screen filter apps out there provide a static screen filter which just stays on the screen all the time, regardless of whether it's actually needed or not. The problem is that when you find yourself in a very bright environment, where you need the absolute maximum brightness which your display is capable of, a static screen filter would take away from it, so you would have to manually go and turn it off.
Active Screen Filter solves this by enabling you to set the minimum and the maximum transparency of the screen filter, so that it would change based on the ambient light or on the currently set screen brightness level. It effectively increases the brightness span of your display below the system minimum, without having to manually turn it on/off or readjust it.
If you like it the app, please post a positive review in the store and share it with your friends! You can also check my other apps - I'm sure you would find them very useful as well.
As always - I'm open to ideas and suggestions. Please do not use the reviews for but reports - email me and help me solve any issues. Thanks!
Add me on Google+, I'll discuss ideas for future features there!
PLEASE READ: The status bar notification is put there because Google made it so! Otherwise the app service might be killed by the system and the app would stop working!
WARNING: The app hardly use any battery power. However, please note that while the screen is just in "off" state and NOT locked - the device would NOT go into deep sleep (power-saving mode) and WILL use a lot of battery power!
Seems some people worry about wearing out their proximity sensor or something like that - rest assured, the proximity sensor would outlast any other part of your phone by a long shot, even if you use it non-stop. :)
For Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean): If you want to remove the status bar icon, go to Android Settings >> Apps >> Smart Screen and uncheck "Show notifications".
✔ Automatically wake up the device when you open the flip cover, take the device out of pocket/bag, etc.;
✔ Automatically turn the screen off when you close the flip cover, put the device in pocket/bag, etc. (as long as the sensor remains blocked) and optionally lock the device after set amount of time (to make the screen stay off, even if the sensor gets unblocked);
✔ Autostart on boot of the phone;
✔ Fully customizable.
Contact me if you want to help translate the app to your language.
TO UNINSTALL: You have to uncheck the "Device Administrator" option first!

This app is developed solely by me, initially for personal use, as I couldn't find such anywhere. If you like my work and want to support my efforts - please give it a 5 star rating and share it with your friends! It would really help!
★★★★★ "Great game.
Love this game! And you will find there is a systematic approach to finding the numbers faster. Won't say how, but the more you play it, the easier it is to find shortcuts to getting the correct line of numbers. Please make this game have real-time online multiplayer." - Julia
★★★★★ "Great fun for all ages!
Gets the grey matter working - especially when your 8 year old son is repeatedly beating you!" - Anonymous (probably ashamed ;))
★★★★ "Really entertaining!
Great game. Once you get the hang of it, it's much easier but still challenging and lots of fun!" - Barbara
This is a brain-stimulating but relaxing game of pattern-recognition and basic logic application. It is based on the classic game "Mastermind", a.k.a. "Code-Breaker". It involves cracking a four (or five) digit code as fast as possible. The UI is meant to be simple, convenient and intuitive for devices of all sizes.
The game requires fast and deep analytical thinking, so those who like playing blitz chess games would love this one.
In the Help menu you can find an in-depth Tutorial, explaining everything from the basic rules to the advanced logic behind the game.
Players take turn in guessing the secret code of their opponent. Each time a player makes a guess, he receives information about his success. The information is given in the form of two numbers, one red and one blue.
The RED number means the amount of digits you have guessed right, but which are in a DIFFERENT POSITION in the secret code you are trying to guess.
The BLUE number means the amount of digits you have guessed right and which are in the CORRECT POSITION in the secret code you are trying to guess.
Considering this information limits the possibilities with each turn. In Player v.s. Player mode, players start with a time limit and gain bonus seconds with each turn. Whoever manages to figure out the other players' secret code first - wins.
The secret code could not contain 0 (zero), so the 0 could be used as a "blank" character. There could also be no repeated digits (like 1337).
In the new "Get Rated" mode your goal is to try and break a random secret code as fast and with as few attempts as possible. The average scores of your last 10 games are your Fast Thinker (average time) and Deep Thinker (average attempts) ratings, which you could share and compare with your friends. The right column shows the number of possible combinations left, if you fully and correctly consider the feedback from all your attempts so far.
Please do NOT use the rating system to report any problems or to submit ideas and requests, since there is no way for me to contact you for any further information. Instead, please use the provided contact e-mail. Thanks!
This app is developed solely by me in my free time. I really like developing Android apps and I'm trying to make it a full time job. If you like my work and want to support my efforts - please give a 5 star rating and share it with your friends! You can also buy me a beer by using the in-app Donate option! Thanks!
Add me on Google+, I'll discuss ideas for future features there!
DISCLAIMER: The functions of call answering and call ending are not officially supported by the Android OS. Those functions can ONLY be achieved with root access and custom modifications of the OS. This app tries to utilize those functions without root access, but it MAY NOT WORK ON YOUR DEVICE! Please do not give low ratings if it this is the case! This is not a fault of the app and there is nothing I can do about it! Thank you for your understanding!
Make your smartphone a truly Smart Phone!
You don't need to touch the screen to manage your phone calls anymore:
✔ Answer calls just by putting the phone to your ear;
✔ Automatically answer a call if a headset is connected;
✔ Reject or end calls just by shaking the device;
✔ Automatically send an SMS when rejecting a call by shake;
✔ Automatically turn the speaker on or off based on whether the device is close to your ear or not (proximity sensor);
ATTENTION! Smart Phone works after it activates! It activates when:
1. There is an incoming call or a call is in progress;
2. The phone is kept steady for a moment;
You would see a message and a status bar notification when Smart Phone activates!
If the app works for you and you want to support its development - please give it a 5 star rating and share it with your friends! You can also consider donating.
