Info 2 Reserved
Known Issues :

-Edit : Fixed

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :

1. What does this App do ?
Ans : Uses various sensors to determine whether the user wanna lock or unlock the screen. Hence,saves time, battery, etc

2. How, do I uninstall this app ?
Ans : Using the uninstall button from Main Screen OR Go to System Settings->Device Administrator->Disable it & then Uninstall the app

3. Is this app completely free & where are the ads ?
Ans : Nope, this app doesn't have ads & ever will & is free but after some period the app gets expire & you need to buy the unlocker

4. Does Cover Algorithm keep running in background ?
Ans : Yes. Because, It needs to run always to lock & unlock phone depending on calculation done by app

5. Does activating the feature 'Start App on Startup' slows down device as told by Android ?
Ans : Yes, for sure but if there are less number of apps for starting on startup then the delay is negligible. If you selected lots of apps or heavy apps then it will slow down the startup of device causing delay

6. Doesn't using sensors continuously consume alot battery ?
Ans : They consume very less power almost negligible. The sensors consume current in few mA

7. Does Disabling the lock screen also remove my secured lock screen ?
Ans : Yes, of course it surely disables lock screen even with password or pattern or any possible lock screen protection. Bug: Lock Screen gets activated when notification tray is used for opening app

8. Does changing sensor affect the battery life ?
Ans : Battery drain rate depends upon the sensor you have selected.Hence, choose such sensor that provides less errors & less power consumption

9. Does changing sensor 'effect' affect the battery life ?"
Ans : Yes, this is because for unlocking the phone. We need to wake the CPU which costs the battery. Hence, for prevention of battery I have added an CPU timeout which drains bit less battery, else you can change effect to ONLY LOCK which doesn't cost much battery

The best question asked :

Depends upon:

1. Device you use
2. Sensor you choose
3. Sensor Effect you choose
4. Unlock Timeout selected

Tips to decrease Power Consumption :

1. If your an CM or AOKP or Google Stock Android user then set Unlock Timeout to 0 for Least Battery Usage
2. If you only LOCK as Sensor Effect then Power Consumption is little decreased
3. Use SENSOR which consumes less power not much effective

Thanks for this app. It really does cover most of the features!

However immediately notice few "bugs" upon first use:

1) Any changes (eg. disable notification icon) made in the settings is not taking effect until I force stop the app through Manage Application (system) and restart the app. Can it take effect immediately or once I pressed back to exit the app setting interface? Like any other app out there..

2) Start Ignore App Monitor button will automatically disabled (previously enabled) upon every start. Although I did not set any app to ignore, is that why it was disabled for this reason?

Nice progress though. Keep it up, hope these are fixed soon!

Thanks mate for precious reply.

Your 1st problem :
I know that some settings don't take effect instantly, for that just stop & start
Cover Algorithm service using the toggle. Best solution is to stop service using main toggle before changing settings.

2nd issue :
Ignore app monitor will work only if there is an app selected from ignore app list

Try to download from Samsung Store till I upload on Play Store
