Great App! I've used this successfully past 2 days in long conf calls (where I must quickly toggle mute or access number pad) and for passing phone around to share pics. I will likely buy the inexpensive paid version to eliminate the add. Of the MANY choices in apps that would appear do about the same thing (some confusingly having the same names; I wish Google could manage that), this one is refreshingly simple, effective, and has a recent release date. I prefer its straight-forward approach of manual control (via easy-to-access service notification icon), as opposed to the complexity and failure points of automated triggers for specific apps, motion gestures or face detection. There are a few small improvements that I would appreciate: 1. The ability to have it automatically load as service with each reboot, with a default state of "system settings". Then I could get the icon off my home screen. 2. Provide the option of 90 & 120 minute timeouts. 3. Come up with a unique app name, and shorten the icon text so it fits. Nice job!
