Default [APP] Smart Screen Off 2.3

Download:
Smart Screen Off LITE
Smart Screen Off PRO

Download Smart screen off PRO User Guide

************ DESCRIPTION *************
Smart Screen Off it's a simple and light app which uses the Proximity Sensor built in your Android smartphone to turn the screen off and on automatically


**************************************

************** REASON ****************

I decided to code this app when I bought my Galaxy Nexus: this device doesn't have any physical button on the front screen. Being a quite huge phone, it's quite difficult to press the "turn off" button every time I wanted to turn it off and on. So I needed a way to turn the screen off every time I put it into the pockets and off when removed.

**************************************

************ HOW IT WORKS *************

The app itself is a toggle button, to switch it on just press the App Icon. Then every time you put the phone into your pockets the screen turns off.

If you put the smartphone upside down on the table, the screen turns automatically off.

NOTE: It doesn't lock the screen (just like in a call)

**************************************

************ REQUIREMENTS *************

In order to use Smart Screen Off, you need to have a phone with Proximity Sensor (nowadays every smartphone incorporates one).

Even though I don't need this app...(I prefer manually clicking),
it seems really useful for whom use flip cases.

Such as "planner styled" Galaxy Note

Just installed and it does what it promises. Will be useful for me when at the gym I want to skip songs, I won´t have to unlock the phone a hundred times. Obviously the proximity sensor will be working all the time, did you notice a significant battery drain?. And the app name in the spanish version of the market is badly translated. It says "Fuera de pantalla inteligente" where it should say "Apagado de pantalla inteligente".

Good app, great idea. I think you should not only use proximity sensor, but things like orientation. I probably wont use this just because it doesn't seem too useful... I sometimes have my hand on top of my phone (near the sensor) and a finger movement can just keep making it blink on and off etc. Use orientation with this, it'd be better.

Still on Stock Android? I pity you. Get on MIUI.

Just installed V1.1 free from the market and it's a bit too sensitive! I hold my phone in my right hand and when I curl my hand over to touch or make gestures on the screen, the display turns off. Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity? I'm running on a Galaxy Nexus running GummyNex 0.7.6 based on AOSP 4.0.3.

UI is useless for lite so remove it, and as long as it has a notification in status bar i will not use this app, can i get v1 back!
2/5 stars

also in v1.2 there is NO way to turn it off :/
