After the success of Smart Screen OFF and Smart Screen ON... Here is Keep Screen ON!

Keep Screen ON is an innovative free app that allow you to keep your smartphone screen ON in a smart way. This app will help you saving battery keeping the screen on only when you are holding it. This works thanks to orientation sensor built in your device (smartphone or tablet).

HOW DOES IT WORK?
When you are using your device, you hold it in a specific position. Keep Screen ON let you select the range of activation of the screen brightness based on the device inclination (more smart ways are coming soon).

WHY DOES IT SHOULD IMPROVE BATTERY LIFE?
You know for sure that screen brightness is the most important factor in battery life and you will find it always at the top of the most consuming factors in Android statistics. Keep Screen ON as name implies, keeps brightness enabled only when you are holding it: as soon as you left it on the table, the screen will turn off.

SO WHAT?
Download the app and extend your battery life!

FUTURE
This is first version and powerful improvements are coming soon.
+Battery tab
+Screen settings
+Brightness settings

I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST
I'm always open to users suggestions, simply contact me using the forum.

KEEP SCREEN ON PRO

Very nice app, been looking for something like this for a while now.
I have one problem with it, when my phone is in its cradle it falls within the setting range and the screen times never times out.

It would be great if in the future there could a setting to disable the app when connected to an external pwr source and/or an option to let the screen time out after a specific time without any movement.

Yes, that's a good idea. Disable during charge will be implemented in one of next releases.
I'll also implement a new way to react to movements in the space.

In test mode the model turns green in my hand and grey when the phone is placed on the desk.
When the app is activated proper, I don't notice any change.

Should the screen be turning off and on based on the test model? Am I mistaking the uses of this app, please tell.

Yeah, always make sure to "Save and restart the app" every change you make. If something doesn't work properly, rebooting could do the trick.

When you are using the phone, the brightness will never be turned off (screen won't turn off and brightness won't be dimmed).
As soon as you are not using phone anymore (you place it on your desk for example), the app will let screen turn off.
More settings about delay are coming soon

Since some user asked, I will implement an in-app billing system to remove ads from app. It will be available in one of next releases with a couple of new features.
