Hi, on request of our fellow user @Viper_21 i built a tool that gives a bit more control to the touch2wake feature built into some custom kernels like googy_max and other kernels.

You have options to configure touch2wake on a more finegrained basis and up to higher values (seconds and minutes) as well as a different value for when headphones are connected. Also you can set it to forever when connected to a power source.

While some may consider this as useless, this may be helpful for special usecases as in car, where you can't easily unlock your device normally, or at home. I didn't even have the need for such an app until i did the first tests with it.

If you think it could be a nice to have thing, feel free to download and please leave a comment on how you use it and also about any bug you came across.

Download: https://app.box.com/s/4n2r7f1zze2xtdvrlz35 v1.0.8





Changelog:

13-09-26 v1.0.7

Better positioning and sizing of number pickers to support touchwiz design

Number pickers now always show standard timeout

Thanx to:

i got something weird, it doesn't require Root Access ?

maybe you should add a pop-up to tell that setting has been applied.

most important of all !!!

why can't you make number a little bigger ...

ah, now i know what number you mean, but its part of the slider element in tasker, i can not modify this. only option is to have an extra number display somewhere but i think in near future i am gonna change the sliders against number pickers anyways....

the popup is planed for next release...

I have no idea what pgm app is about... can you give more info?

Edit: found it, but no, its different.

Touch2Wake is a kernel feature that lets you wake the device by a simple touch for a given time after screen goes off by screen timeout. No gesture needed at all.

This app gives control of the time you have from screen off to wake the device, but also lets you choose different time for headphone mode or when connected to power source.

Something funky with 1.06.... I don't see the number "rollers" as shown in your screenshot. Above each number there is only an up arrow, no down arrow below them. So can only increase numbers for now.

If I tap the number to enter a value manually, then screen gets all mangled when keyboard pops up and impossible to work with,

please read the thread, i think i already described what it does. also you need to have a kernel installed that features Touch2Wake also called Touchwake.

Edit: ok, i did not... so here with the words of ezekiel, the creator of touchwake:

Quote:

So with Touch Wake, one can wake the device from suspend (for a certain user-defined time after screen off) by touching the touchscreen or the touchkeys. Combined with a OS level tweak which disables the lock screen on timeout for a certain time or altogether (for example in CM 7.03, but also available as standalone apps from the Market), one can achieve the same functionality as Screen Dimmer. Compared to Screen Dimmer, Touch Wake has the advantage that the screen will not be blanked as long as the FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON is set and also the battery drain while the screen is off will be significantly less because only the touch controls are kept enabled and the Android OS and running apps are properly put to sleep. For the record, with Touch Wake, while the touch controls are still enabled, the kernel is kept in a wake lock, so the battery drain will still be a little higher than for the normal stock screen lock...
