Gravity Screen Pro – On / Off v1.73.1

 

Current Version: 1.73.1

Requires Android: 2.2 and up

Category:   Tools

v1.73.1 update: – – –  v1.73.3 – – -

Fixed: – crashed if the app was started in landscape mode. Let me know if still experiencing any crash. – infinite timeout If the app does not work properly after the update, try to re-install it to solve the problem.

Overview: – Install it only if you have difficulty to Unlock the Free version by In-app Billing or the Free version does not work for you for some reason. –

Using your phone often? Tired of the On-Off switching? This app turns automatically your screen off when you put your phone into your pocket or onto a table and turn the screen on when you take it out or up. No need to touch any button and you are ready to go.

HOW IT WORKS:

It monitors the orientation of the device through the gravity sensor. When your phone is pointing downward by its top, below a certain angle, it’s likely to be out of use. In this situation the proximity sensor is activated to determine if it is covered. If yes, the screen turns off because probably you placed the phone into your pocket or onto a table. To keep the battery usage low the program turns on the proximity sensor only when it’s really necessary. Moreover, when it turns your screen off and the proximity sensor is covered it puts your phone into deep sleep state to save as much energy as possible.

MAIN FEATURES:

- Pocket Sensor: Recognizes if your phone is in your pocket. – Table Sensor: Detects your phone is lying on a table and turns the screen off. – Turn Screen On by Motion: If the screen is off and it’s facing up the device can be woken up by any movements, for example lift up by hand. – Keep Screen On by Motion: It’s a Screebl like feature but it’s relying on the small movements you are doing by your hand while holding the phone. If small motions are detected while the screen is facing up the feature keeps the screen on because it can be suspected that the phone is held and probably you are reading something. If the phone is steady the normal screen timeout will apply in any position you leave your device. – Exclude Apps option: The app pauses itself anytime if selected app is running, it’ll resume when you close the app. Useful when playing games etc. – Tasker, Llama, Locale supported by plug-in.

BATTERY USAGE:

It should be not significant. I experienced about 6 per cent extra consumption on the test device. However it can be much higher by often using the Turn Screen On by Motion feature. Thus, keep your phone face down if you want to save energy.

IMPORTANT:

On some devices (e.g. HTC One) the alarm clock is switched off by the app after it had gone off! Please check if it’s the case for you. If, yes, use a third party app, for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vp.alarmClockPlusDock

SIDE NOTE:

- The app was not widely tested. Hopefully it will work fine for you. But, if you experience any issue or just have a question, please email me.

FREE vs. PRO VERSION

In the Pro version the screen can be turned on by motion up to 16 hours instead of 15 minutes. Also, in the Pro version the Table sensor is more accurate.

FAQ

Q: The screen not always turns off when I put my phone into my pocket, why? A:The proximity sensor not always accurate. It can fail recognizing some materials specially if they are very close to it. If it happens to you often, you can activate the False Turn-On Protection feature which effectively reduces the number of accidental wake-ups.

Q: I’m experiencing high battery usage, why? A: The app should use about 6 percent extra energy per day if you are not using too much the Turn Screen On by Motion feature, for example keeping your phone face down when it’s on a table. Moreover, please, keep in mind that the android en-built battery consumption measurement can show much higher results if it’s based on a short period of time.

Q: The Turn Screen On by Motion feature does not work for me, why? A: It’s likely that your device is stopping the acceleration sensor when the screen goes off and we can do nothing about it unfortunately. More info: http://www.saltwebsites.com/2012/android-accelerometers-screen-off

[New App] SidePlayer | SidePlayer Pro

 

If you’re listening to music while using your phone or tablet for something else, you don’t always want to stop what you’re doing to fiddle with the song. If you’re in a game, for example, you may have to exit to the home screen just to get to your music controls, but SidePlayer offers an alternative. It pops a small control panel out from the edge of the screen when you need it, and hides it when you don’t.

SidePlayer ties into various music players like Google Play Music, PowerAmp, n7 player, and several OEM music apps. Just drag in from the right edge of the screen and the controls appear. Drag back, and they recede. This works in any app, even a full-screen game. The free version of the app is limited to this basic functionality, but the $1.75 pro edition includes themes, metadata display, more layouts, active area positioning, and more.

This app doesn’t make a lot of sense for devices that can show the notification shade in full-screen apps (like Samsung devices and stock KitKat), but it could be great for others. You can give it a shot for free, so why not?

Feedly Brings Back The Lifetime Pro Edition, Except Now It Costs Three Times Its Introductory Price

 

Feedly began as a free service, but once the company really started to ramp up its efforts to create the next Google Reader, they introduced a monthly fee to go with it. Users can subscribe to use Feedly for $5 a month, or they can get it for a discounted price of $45 a year. When the company first rolled out this plan, they gave away $99 lifetime subscriptions to the first 5,000 people who claimed them. Those quickly sold out. Well, for anyone who missed out and has been waiting since then, lifetime subscriptions are finally back, only this time they will cost you $299.

 

For this to work out in your favor, you will have to be certain that you intend to use Feedly for over six years. Given how quickly some online services come and go, that’s quite the show of confidence. Still, if Feedly does stand the test of time, this could end up being a steal – it will just take you the better part of a decade to find out.
