I think this will just drain your battery as it's only for OLED devices, which require no power to generate black pixels. This app basically displays a total black screen, simulating the display is turned off, while in fact it is not, so you are able to use all sorts of swipe gestures to run apps and similar. It's a great idea but on our phone it will drain the battery as the display is basically never turned off.

No, it is implemented fine. Just it is not designed to be used on a screen that is not OLED.

Screen on also means the device isn't sleeping, regardless of oled or not. Bad idea.
