Phone [APP][2.3+][FREE] IntelliCover 2.0 - Display Automation using Proximity/Light

Hi there xda. A few months ago I posted my first app, IntelliCover, on xda-developers. It got a great response here and was featured on the front page of xda-developers and went on to feature on Discovery Channel's App Snap. Of course, being the smart person that I am...Well, let's just say I lost it...Yes, lost the app...Don't ask how. Anyways, I saw this as a chance to rebuild the app with all your suggestions in mind, from the ground up. So here it is, IntelliCover 2.0!


※ DESCRIPTION

IntelliCover 2.0 is a utility which uses your device’s proximity sensor, light sensor and/or accelerometer to turn the screen on and off, allowing fast and efficient access to your phone or tablet.

It turns the screen off automatically when you put your device in your pockets, close its flip cover, store the device in a bag, or even just leave the device facing down on a table. As soon as the device is back in your hand the proximity/light sensor is triggered again, the screen turns back on and your device in instantly ready for use. This improves productivity immensely on large devices or devices that do not have physical hardware buttons.

IntelliCover 2.0 is the completely revamped and redesigned version of IntelliCover, rebuilt from scratch after listening to the feedback of thousands of users.


※ COMPATIBILITY

IntelliCover works on all Android devices that have a light or proximity sensor, or an accelerometer. It does NOT require your device to be rooted.


※ FEATURES

• Sensor Calibration: Screen On Delay, Screen Off Delay, Suspension Timers, Application Suspension, Light/Shake Sensitivity Calibration
• Application Settings: Disable in Portrait/Landscape Mode, Go to Home Screen, Remove Lock Screen, Screen Off Only, Screen On Only, Start on Boot, Save Profile (Settings), Restore Profile, Restore Default Settings
• Modes: Proximity Mode, Shake Mode, Light Mode, Proximity and Light Combo Mode
• Notifications: Proximity Warning (Vibration), Status Bar Notification
• Toggles(Screen On/Off): Airplane Mode, Auto Sync, Bluetooth, Ringer Mode, Wi-fi

Default Awesome app!

Thanks a lot! The app works flawlessly on my Note, really handy indeed.

One question, is this app compatible with tablets, specifically, Nexus 7? I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I couldn't get it to work on that device.

I'm glad you like the app.

Yes, the app is designed to work on all tablets, and has been tested for compatibility on Nexus 7 specifically. Tablets do not have proximity sensor (usually) so you'll have to use it in "Light Mode" which uses the light sensor instead. Don't worry, it works just as well as the proximity sensor. If you are already using light mode, please let me know and I'll try to help you. Can you tell me which Android version you're using?

Ah, sorry, my bad. It works great in light mode. I assumed tablets had a proximity sensor (I'm kinda new around here ).

One more thing. I'm not sure if this is a bug, but when the Device Administrator page popped up, I clicked cancel by mistake, but it kept showing up again and again until I clicked Activate. It kept reappearing unless I accepted it.

Thanks again!

Whoops, that's a weird bug. This is what I get for adding last minute untested modifications. I should've known better. =/ Thanks for the tip, I'll fix it by the next update. =)

Hi Dev.

Thanks for making a very good apps for us.
I am using your Original IntelliCover & its work great
on my Nexus 4 with Cover Case, I am loving it.

Should I need to uninstall the IntelliCover 1 & install the IntelliCover 2...?
Google Play doesn't show up update alert for the new v2....???!!!!

Whats the different between IntelliCover 1 & 2, I see the new one have
much larger file size, 1000k vs 4000k, Which version will work
best on my Nexus 4...?

Thanks...!

Its good but takes lot of RAM compared to intellicover 1 (almost three times). Thank you for making this app anyways but I am still fine with intellicover 1 and that works great. I have to say one thing, for me both work flawless. Please keep intellicover 1 also on google play. Looks like it is removed now.

Default Small bug that annoy me a lot and improvement request

Bug
1. Remove lock screen will work for sometimes only. It will not work after sometime. It will go back to lock screen mode automatically even the option I already select.

Improvement request
1. When manually press the power button to off the screen, set the program off for temporary so it won't auto screen on again.

Other than that, it is one of the best app I like

I would recommend installing the new version since I will not be updating the old version anymore and the new one has more features. But the new version is still a little buggy since I had to rebuild the whole app, so if you want to wait a little bit, that makes sense too. I couldn't post an update on the old one because I lost the keys for the app and all its data as well. =( That's one reason I had to rebuild it. That's also why the old one hasn't been updated in months. The new one is a bigger filesize because it has a lot more features and a big UI upgrade. =)

Yes, I realize it is taking up quite a bit of RAM for some reason. I wanted to get the app out there but I haven't started optimizing it completely yet. It makes sense for you to use IntelliCover 1 for now, but I plan on rolling out alot of updates soon that will optimize it, so keep an eye out.

The lock screen issue is a known bug. I'm working on fixing it as soon as I can, hopefully by next update. Manually pressing the power button should keep the screen off...Hmmm...are you using the proximity sensor or the light sensor?
