Keeps phone on all the time; support not helpful I purchased this to get a smart cover like solution on my Note II (N7100) but it doesn't quite work. It pretty much leaves the phone on all the time. I sent support an email and they responded nearly immediately telling me to put 'the sticker on the cover' but they didn't explain what sticker, and didn't respond again. Luckily the Note II has pretty good battery life so even though this app keeps the phone on most of the time it still kinda works for my needs (I just turn the app off to save battery later in the day when I don't use my phone a lot)
It's the little things Love this app. Works flawlessly. Doesn't seem to have a noticeable impact on battery life. Only downside is a faint bit noticeable ticking sound when listening to audio, but with the notification toggle enabled its simple enough to disable the app temporarily when required.
Not as good as sview native. Snoozes alarm clock which is bad. If you have a pin it will prompt you to enter it every time you wake the device up. Smart cover locks the device, not sleep with a lock timeout. Even with a lock delay set.
Too many issues Causes YouTube and most other videos to stutter. The whole phone is laggier because of app. App locks phone immediately even though my settings are to lock after 30 minutes. The only plus is no excess battery loss.
Nice but a lot of battery consumption The app is nice. Some times it doesn't detect correctly that I flipped open my cover. So I have to swipe over the sensor. What annoys me how much it consumes battery!!
Note 2 - fabulous I have tried a couple of other of these apps and none works as well and as flawlessly as this one. And my battery does not even seem to notice I'm using it. One use I particularly appreciate is when I'm listening to music or a podcast, I just flip my cover closed and when I need to stop the play in a hurry, I just flip the cover open and hit stop. Easy peasy and handy! This just does what it says every time and nicely. This truly does work with ANY cover. I just got a clear gel case with cover - CLEAR - and it works perfectly!! It's very very very smart.
