About this app

**Please note, Caffeinate is on hiatus while I work through some personal issues, thank you for your interest in Caffeinate however, that means the world to me!**

Caffeinate works by creating a Tile in your Quick Settings, a feature only available in Android Nougat (7.0) and higher.

Upon toggling, Caffeinate will keep your screen awake for five minutes (you can increase this timer by tapping the tile, or change the default time in the settings). After times up, your screen will continue sleeping normally.

Pretty much works exactly like CM's (and now LineageOS') caffeine function.


A few things to note...
- Caffeinate posts a notification when activated (and removed when the timer hits zero) in order to prevent the service from being killed. You can disable notifications for Caffeinate by long pressing the notification, and choosing to block all notifications (You'll miss the quick cancel option however!).

- By default, Caffeinate has an app launcher icon just like any other normal app on your phone, but you can choose to hide this icon through Caffeinate's settings menu.

- Caffeinate uses Firebase, in order to report crashes, some analytics, and remote config (A/B testing).

- Due to issues with aggressive battery optimizations features built into OneUI, Caffeinate is not supported on Samsung phones/tablets.

This app used to be fantastic!! I've used it for literal years between multiple devices now, but for whatever reason, on the latest version of Android 10 on my Pixel 2, tapping the tile just pops up a dialog saying "This app keeps stopping" and it no longer functions. Hope there's a workaround to make this work on Android 10 again!

Must-Have App! This is a great app. Excellent for following online instructions, reading, etc. I use it most often while cooking or painting. Well done! Thanks! I have a feature request/suggestion.. Some sort of sound when activated/deactivated? Would feel more exciting to push the button.. LOL

This was a great app that I'd use on occasion for so long... but now on my Pixel 4 XL running Android 10 with the Dec '19 patch it just doesn't do anything but give a force close message. I would love to have this work again! Sorry for the poor review. I'll adjust it when it is functional again.

What's new

This update starts the new year with the following bug fixes:

- Fixed an issue that caused Caffeinate to not start correctly on Oreo and higher.
- Caught a rare case where duplicate notifications would be posted.
- Improved detecting if DND permissions were granted, while trying to use the Sound Profile tile.

Thanks to all who emailed in to report any sort of issues you encounter, it really does help me tackle these issues! I hope your holidays went well, and that you have a happy New Years!
