Completely unstable app on Note 3. Wish it worked! I tried many settings trying to get this to work on my Note 3 and ran into two major issues. The app reset my device several times when trying to use the 'two-touch'. The other couple of times I couldn't get my device to unlock. When I turned the display on it would show the lock screen for a second, but wouldn't let me unlock it. Then it immediately showed the notification bar but wouldn't let me do anything. Just a really buggy app overall and I tried many different settings to get it to work but it kept crashing.... Too bad because I can't seem to find another like it. I'll just have to keep my brightness set at zero until this app gets a major overhaul or I find another solution.

Hangs when checking BusyBox on SGS5 App hangs during wizard just after it checked for root access (which was approved). Works when I skip the wizard.

Crashes and gets stuck, do not install! Does not work at all on HTC one m8. Gets stuck with black screen, with no other option but to do a hard boot (power button and volume up button). May change rating if the dev gets their act together.

Completely unstable app on Note 3. Wish it worked! I tried many settings trying to get this to work on my Note 3 and ran into two major issues. The app reset my device several times when trying to use the 'two-touch' mode, which is the only real, convenient way to use the app for something like streaming Netflix or Youtube to a TV. The other couple of times I couldn't get my device to unlock. When I turned the display on it would show the lock screen for a second, but wouldn't let me unlock it. Then it immediately showed the notification bar but wouldn't let me do anything. Just a really buggy app overall and I tried many different settings to get it to work but it kept crashing....
