The Proximity Sensor works in binary mode, 1 or 0, on or off, without any intermediate values. Someone told me it the range can be changed if you modify build.prop file with root access. But this is not what I want. I would like everyone can use my app, with or without root.
So I'm trying to implement a combination with light sensor. The only problem is that the light sensor built in Android phone are not the best sensor on the market and every device has different sensos. In other words, in low light conditions this could not work as expected. I'm working on this at the moment

2/5 stars

also in v1.2 there is NO way to turn it off :/

1) How can I tell free users in a simple UI like mine, that exists a pro version of the app and put a link to it? I think that's the best way.
I'm sorry you gave 2/5 only because you can't switch it on/off through the notification bar.

2) You can turn it off by clicking on the icon...

I'm working on light sensor at the moment but without a proximity sensor it wouldn't be the best choise.

The idea is to make the app as fast as possible:
I don't need the phone anymore? I'll put it into the poket (without touching anything);
I need the phone again? I'll remove it from the poket. (without touching anything);

I think this concept will never change.

Thanks for this nice app, tested the lite version.
Few observations:

a) Observed very very low or no impact on battery. Great.
b) Not consistent! Though show in notification, and in on position, suddenly stops working! I mean screen will not go off or come on! Need to again start and stop for it to resume working!

It will be great if you can fix this on consistency please. This may be because of opening 2-3 heavy apps like market and browser the Smart screen is getting killed in background?

What would be the goal of turning off wifi with an app like mine?

This is really strange, since I didn't encounter this issue on my Galaxy Nexus (the device i test it hardly on). Maybe there's an incompatibility with another app who have installed and works in background.

Yes I think is because the service has been killed because of low memory. I'll try to implement a service who can't be killed in future versions!

I'll quote what I answered to another user:

In other words, in low light conditions this could not work as expected. I'm working on this at the moment
