hi ,
tested on Note 4 ( N910F ) Lollipop v5.0.1 ,works fine!
and solved one big annoyance for me ,
watching movie on tv (device via MHL3 connector + HDMI cable to tv )
backlight of device was always on .
Now i can switch device backlight off ( perfect for me ) !!
and save wasting unnecessary battery power .
Tested it also on Note 8.0 ( KitKat ) tab, works also fine .
good luck

Thanks for the report. The problem should be fixed in the new release (v1.0.3.0). Please clear the app data after installation. I tested it on my old Samsung Galaxy Y and found no issues so far but please post if anything doesn't work (as it should).

I'll wait how much demand there is for this.
Please note that this app doesn't put the device to sleep and its purpose is to be used with other apps (video players) which keep the device awake anyway. So this app doesn't wake up the device and shouldn't be used as a replacement for a "double tap to wake" feature.

i have a question. how can i activate it when i am in a full screen app? seems like i've to increase the activation time so that i can enter quickly into the app & then it will auto activate. but if u can implement an option to trigger it by double/triple/quad (as someone may trigger something else by tapping certain tym so it will be better to keep these three options) tapping the screen then it would be so much easy! we won't have to increase/decrease timer for different apps. & how does the option 'allow externel access' work? i mean i can switch off the screen from any app (except full screen ones) via notification without enabling it. so what does it do if i enable it?

I'll think if I can find a good way to enable it from a full screen app. Can you open the notification area from the recents screen? If I remember correctly it's opened by long clicking the home button on your device.
External access must be enabled to use the shortcut feature. You can add the shortcut to your home screen but automation tools usually also support shortcuts so you could combine it. Maybe it's already possible to detect double/triple taps with an automation tool and trigger this app then.

No, Playstore updates are only delivered to apps which are installed via the Playstore. Also, the version on the Playstore has a different package name, i.e., it's a different app.
