Do you find yourself poking your screen to keep it from turning off? Want to turn your screen on without the power button? KinScreen automatically keeps your screen on while you're using your phone, but turns it off more quickly when you aren't to save battery power.

Turn screen on with gestures
Save the wear and tear on your power button by using gestures to turn the screen on. You can turn the screen on via the proximity sensor or by lifting the device up. Uncovering the proximity sensor lets you pull your phone out of your pocket and have the screen turn on automatically. Waving over the sensor works great when your hands are dirty! You may also set a tilt angle that turns the screen on when the phone is lifted up (tilt to wake).
Keep screen on automatically
Choose from various methods that detect use of the device and keep the display on. The motion method detects small movements from you just holding the device. Waving over the proximity sensor is another way to keep your screen on, and optionally extends the timeout. The tilt angle method allows the display to stay on when propped up, even when you aren't holding it. You can also choose to have the display stay on while using chosen apps, while charging, or while on a call (display still turns off when you put the phone to your ear).
Time screen out quickly to save battery
You can choose the screen timeout when there are no keep-on functions actively keeping the screen on. If the screen isn't being kept on, it should time out quickly to save battery power. The screen can turn off even quicker when the proximity sensor is covered (in-pocket or face down), or when the device is pointed down. You can also set a separate timeout for the lock screen. KinScreen will not turn the screen off when other apps are keeping the screen on, unless you have selected to actively turn the screen off.
KinScreen is designed to be as efficient and battery friendly as possible. It uses minimal CPU and memory, and sensor use is highly optimized. Some functions use more power than others. The proximity sensor may use noticeable power on some older devices, but is negligible on most modern devices. Turn-on-by-tilt-angle will use significant battery power because it needs to keep the device awake in order to work. You may configure the optional exceptions to limit the time this function is in use.
All functions are highly customizable to your taste. Fine-tuning of numerical parameters is locked in the free version. Please upgrade to premium to fully unlock all customization, and support future development!
