I would say Gravity Screen is much more consistent turning on the screen when you pick up the phone. I use this, though, since I want the breathing feature and Gravity doesn't have that.How is this compared to Gravity Screen. My pixel isn't rooted and Gravity Screen isn't working consistently so I am looking for alternatives.
I do believe it's related to the sensor for laying flat. I'm planning on adding a high pass filter to it, I just haven't had a chance to with the baby. I should have time to work on it starting tomorrow though.App seems improved after latest updates addressing responsiveness. Occasionally I notice the notification when unlocking before it vanishes. Not a deal breaker or anything...
I do notice one new "bug". At times when locking the phone when it's face up on a flat surface the ambient display will trigger right away. I'm only using the wave (set to 2 waves) and the default pocket remove options. I've yet to find the exact cause but it does happen often enough to notice. If it's related to a false positive on one of the sensors right after locking perhaps the easiest fix would be to add a short time delay before the wake up becomes active after locking.
I'm working on it. Basically I'm fighting the fact that android now puts the processor into sleep mode much aggressively and delays responses. I'm getting closer with each update though and at least on my own phone it hasn't affected battery life.It almost never wakes after taking out if the pocket. It would be awesome if it was more consistent
I'm adding some customization to set the wave timing parameters.Figured I'd check out battery usage for myself - just bought the Pro version of the app!
Happy to provide beta feedback.
So far, the "wave" trigger almost never works on my Pixel XL. Maybe 2 out of 10 times it works for me.
Also, I read on the app's Info/Help screen that your phone's screen has to be off and locked. I might be wrong here, but I consider "locked" to be a state where the phone needs to be "unlocked" to work. Since I use Smart Lock in my home, my phone is never "locked" when home. Still, your app works just fine!
At first, I bothered to turn off all of my Smart Lock settings prior to installing your app. When I tested it, the app worked as advertised. Then, wanting all of my Smart Locks back on, which essentially keeps my phone unlocked when home and when on my body, I made a mental note to look for your app behavior when I am at work tomorrow. To my delight, the next time I picked up my phone today, the app worked perfectly.
So, if I have the terms "locked" and "unlocked" right, you may want to change your info/help screen instructions.
