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.

Pro Features:
  • 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 Once,
    Swipe Twice,
    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

Value when sensor covered
Tip: if you choose light Sensor and if you vales range from 0 to >50, keep this at around 15 (Use the charts to see what values sensors give out)
