Auto Speaker

Auto Speaker


This simple application will automatically switch speaker status on\off during a phone call according to phone position.
It uses the proximity sensor to know if the phone is near your ear or not.

If you are using any type of headset, it will turn the speaker off, regardless of the proximity sensor and use the headset.

Whenever you are in a call, a new "control" button appears (default location is on the top left of the screen).
Pressing this button enables (Green icon) or disables (Red icon) the service for the current call.
Alternatively you can use notification on the status bar instead of the control button.
Please note that when disabling the service it will turn off the speaker.

Furthermore, the speaker button of the dialer may not indicate the current status of the speaker (on\off), nevertheless the status is changed.

IMPORTANT:
Some devices may need to be calibrated for the app to work correctly.
See 'Calibration' option in settings if needed.

Features:
- Set default service status.
- Disable the service when phone is set to silent or vibrate (optional).
- On each call, you can change the service status for that specific call (It does not change your dialer).
Using it will turn the speaker on if service is enabled, and off if service is disabled.
- Set the speaker status when call starts.
- When changing to speaker, set the volume to maximum (configurable).
- Keep the screen on when speaker and/or headset is in used (optional).
- Control for speaker on\off delay (separate delay for on and off).
- Select between using control button or notification on status bar.
- Custom location of the control button.
- Custom transparency of control button.

Default setting is to turn off the speaker quickly when putting it near the ear, but a longer delay to turn it off.
This way if you just move the phone for a second from the ear it will not turn it on.

This is an app I so want to give FIVE stars to, but as of right now I cannot. First off, the developer is great and is working with me to solve my random issues of not turning on every time I receive or make a call. I'd say it works about 75% of the time...the others, I have to manually turn the speaker phone on. I spend a LOT of time driving and need to be as safe as possible. When this app works it truly is a life saver! I have a Galaxy S6 Edge...which is about as powerful as you can get so I know it is not my hardware, but something is causing it to not always activate. I have a sneaky suspicion it is something with the memory as it seems to work great at the beginning of the day when I haven't had many apps running, but when I am using Maps and have had lots of apps running, it is less accurate. I hope we can fix this issue as it is a brilliant app! Worth trying as if you are not a power user it may work perfect.

Note 4 osv.4.4.4 on T-mobile Flawless! Tested 2 weeks. This app operates perfectly!! . . . Fully *USER-Controlled* Settings!! . . . Seriously, Thank God for the (RARE) Engineering “Style” of coders who 'get:IT'™ . . . '•F√nction over Fash!on•'™ . . . ALWAYS provide fine-grained ∗USER∗+∗CONTROL∗!! (I constantly see Usability Destroyed by some !diot's personal desire that a Computer - is/or should be - “HUMAN” & understand context - which it will/should NOT!!) :::coughfukingmactardscough:::
