SoftLocker FREE

SoftLocker FREE


When activated, SoftLocker maintains a screen-only lock by holding a partial wake lock on the system, thus DISABLING deep sleep.

** Note: **
As of v0.9.1 This version has the same functionality as the DONATE version of SoftLocker, but does not have a widget.

If you find this app useful, please consider purchasing the DONATE version of SoftLocker. Thank you for your consideration!

On to the details!
------------------
SoftLocker is useful for Android tablets only, it is pretty useless on phones! This app was originally tested on the Pandigital Novel, now on the NOOK Color, but *should* work on any tablet (like the Archos, Augen, Viewsonic, or other Android tablets).

When SoftLocker is enabled and the screen is locked, the device remains FULLY ALIVE except for the screen. Don't kill the service with an app killer! It consumes almost zero system resources.

Contact the dev with problems!

User reviews of SoftLocker FREE
Fixes SGS Plus screen wakeup lag. On the downside, the app does sap a lot of battery. My battery usage says 12% for this app which puts it in the third place of battery consumers, right after display (32%) and Android System (16%). I hope this can be fixed/tweaked in the future versions

Works great on my Archos 101. A widget would be nice.

It works but... It drained all my Note 2 battery overnight... from 100% to 11% in just six hours and I was not even using my phone... it's just a pity for such a great app! Update: l'm using the app a while and things got better as about the battery. Not so much battery burning.

issue with Android 4.3 it seems the app doesn't always wake the device although it's running.
