WakeUp

With this App you can activate the screen without using the Power Button.


Review on XDA portal

1.2 Review on XDA portal


The screen turns off and the monitoring is activated when you use the Widget to lock the screen or put the device on a horizontal surface, such as the office desk; the screen turns on automatically when you lift and tilt the device towards you.

There is also an option to lock the screen when you put your phone in your pocket; in this case the screen turns on automatically when you tilt the device forward.

It's also possible to automatically activate the monitoring when the screen turns off after the time set in system options or when you turn off the screen with the Power Button.

The application uses a little battery while monitoring because it prevents the device from going to sleep; you can then set how long it will be monitoring the movement of the device: the convenience comes at a cost!

To uninstall the app you need to disable the Device Administrator.

wtf! I installed it and it blocked my phone. When i pick up the phone it keeps vibrating and the screen turns on and off like crazy. I can't do anything with my phone because when i unlock it, the screen immediately turns off.
I put the phone for 10 minutes unattended and it calmed down, so i had time to stop and remove this.

Love it! If I still think it's this good in a couple of days, I'll definitely be buying the PRO version. (As a longtime Nexus One owner who had two power buttons go south, I still cringe whenever I have to hit the power button on any phone.)

So far so good tested and working correctly on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7105 (LTE). At first i was worry the screen might turn on when i put it in my pocket while walking.Well, it does not work that way. It will only turn on the screen while the phone on my hand and approach my face. Good... i like it.
i hope the next version can have screen turn off automatically while the phone put on table without motion / while in the pocket.

Apart of working as it should, does anyone test the power consumption of this app?. I love the idea but afraid of my battery drain.

From the OP, I thought it was intended to function this way. It seems not, in my testing. I second the request.

I really like the idea of this app, testing it ATM (curious about battery drain).

An idea I had was the option to have an option to keep the sensors active while charging (I don't care too much about battery drain while charging and often pickup my phone during the charging).

In 8 hours of use with Automatically Monitoring Enabled, I had a consumption of about 10% more (Samsung Galaxy Note 3); I think it is acceptable to have this comfort.

    I'm currently using an app called Gravity Screen which seems to function much the same.

    The program is working fine but if you use the security -"screen lock" and use" Automatically lock" 5 minutes after sleep even with Power button instantly locks unchecked in KK, the 5 minutes delay is not applied on the password lock, and you have to reenter the Pin or pattern at every wake up
    Maybe there is a way to do it but I did not find it

    I don't think it is possible to bypass the lock screen security.

    I tried to implement it in my app Magus - many times and it led to many solutions but noone was satisfying.

    Secured screen is secured and you cannot unlock it programatically.

    Unlocking secured lockscreens works only with old Androids... prior to 3.0 I suppose - I have implemented it as a LockScreen Hack in Magus.

    Good luck!
