[Apr/16/2013][Android][APP] Proximity Screen Off 6.1 Pro & Lite 3.7 - New Gestures!!
After a great success of ProximtyScreenOffLite
(more than 68,000 downloads) I decided to take all the feedback and feature requests by users and improve the features and quality of the app.
- Pocket/Flip or Smart Cover Mode: Turns screen OFF when sensor covered and ON when uncovered. (Feature requested by Galaxy Note users)
- Turn Screen On/Off with following gestures:
Swipe and Hold,
Hold and Swipe and
Cover and Hold
- Ignore Apps list: Add the apps/games where you want to disable the service
- Widget: to start and stop the service
- ScreenOff shortcut: to turn off the screen by launching the app.
- Sensor Configuration : Based on your device select the sensor of your choice, or the one that's available and configure their values, as they are different for different devices.
- Enable screen on/off during calls only
- Disable call handling completely
- Battery saving options: De-Activate sensors after timeout and De-Activate sensors when power button pressed or system goes idle.
- Override power button and screen-on by other apps (Phone is in pocket and you get a call or you accidentally press the power button, screen will remain off)
- Prevent accidental screen on
- Vibration on screen On/Off
