BENEFITS
► Fingerprint or iris scan stays operational no fall back to pin / password (Samsung S6, S7, Note 5, Note 7)
► Does not affect Smart Lock
► No Device administrator setting = Trouble free uninstall
► Also works with always-on / edge display
► No root needed
► It’s not just a black screen → Screen turns off or always-on-display kicks in
► No ads
► No unnecessary other functions: small file size, small pric
Many other screen-off apps also lock your device. The next time you try to unlock the device you will get this or a similar message: “Draw pattern instead of using Fingerprint recognition because of security policy”. My app is a workaround, because it does not lock your device directly.
OPTIONS
► Set screen timeout (0-10sec, or minimum allowed on your device)
► Select screen off transition effect
► Two launcher icon variants → please watch https://youtu.be/fb5cwEjeV2Q
► Show or hide reminder text
USES
► Spare your power button
► Turn off your screen using an icon on your home screen
► Call it from other apps (e.g. Tasker, IFTTT etc)
► Assign it to gestures (e.g. swipe/double tap in Apex, Nova Launcher etc)
► Add it to your notifications using AppDialer or similar apps
► Call it via voice command (Google Now or S Voice etc.)
► Let me know if you find other uses
TROUBLESHOOTING
If the screen doesn’t stay off and comes back on after a few seconds, please adjust the Timeout value. On the Nexus 6P a setting of about 7 seconds is reported to work well (70% along the seekbar).
Please email me if you have any questions or problems with the app. I respond very quickly. Since there is no trial version I give unconditional refunds within a week of purchase.
