Hello,

I am the developer behind Magic Unlock

First of all, this app allows you to unlock your phone (after the screen is on) using a hover gesture.

Usage tips

- Lockscreen security needs to be off
- Lockscreen needs to be active
- Works only after the screen is on
- 'On' button means that the app is working

Tehnical data
- Uses proximity sensor for hover detection
- Android service with listening on ACTION_SCREEN_ON/OFF intents
- Proximity sensor reading only when screen is on (battery saving)
- And an adaptive service

Adaptive service settings
- Low priority - app running in background (might be laggy on some devices)
- Medium priority (adaptive) - running in background when enough memory is available / running in foreground (visible notification) when low memory is detected - [recommended setting]
- High priority - always run in foreground (visible notification) - [best responsiveness]


Screenshots





Thank you all very much!

This app will not unlock your phone when is in pocket, Sensor starts listening when the screen is turned on (when home or unlock button is pressed)

On Google play page is an youtube demo

The app it's on a lightweight long running service that stays in background when in medium or low priority mode with no sensor listening

so the battery it's not threatened
