CaseSensor for Tablets


CaseSensor offers Smart Cover functionality for Android Tablets. It makes waking up and closing the screen easy by just closing and opening your tablet's case. CaseSensor can automatically dim your screen when you close your tablet's case and turn the screen back on when you open it. This is accomplished by monitoring the light sensor levels of the tablet. When the light sensor is covered by the tablet's case, the device goes to sleep and when the case uncovers the tablet the device wakes up*. Moreover, CaseSensor gives you the option to remove the tablet's lock screen features that is enabled by default so you don't need to unlock your tablet each time you want to use it, just let CaseSensor do it! Simply start CaseSensor, follow the on-screen instructions on the calibration wizard and you are good to go. If you are looking for a more tailored experience just head to the settings page and customize it to you heart's content. If you are living a busy life, CaseSensor comes with a handy widget that allows you to easily control it right from your home screen or the android notifications area.

CaseSensor has been tested on Motorola XOOM, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Acer Iconia Tab

Waste of money This app seemed to be the app that would make the galaxy tab 3 work perfectly like a s4 with a flipcase but it is so buggy it enables its self when sleep hours are active.... Would like a refund since it isn't working as described.

Does not work and no support This does not function on my Toshiba tablet, sent 2 reports to developer for assistance and received zero response and zero help. Pretty obvious why they don't offer a version to test before buying - they would never sell anything. Software that has issues doesn't bother me as much as really poor or no customer support.

Requires constant calibration for differening light levels when you change rooms. Very unreliable.
