I’d rather rely on applications> development, but I can’t. This app works and is very clean, but I wish it had an option to dim the screen like the stock feature does (when it feels like it).

It works.

Love this because the Stay Awake setting is not staying enabled on a custom ROM I am using. Only problem I found is if I reboot with USB plugged in, my screen timeout changes to 10 min instead of 1 min that I have it set to. Does not occur if I reboot with USB unplugged. May be a ROM issue. Not sure.

0 star... Didn't work... In fact it changed my screen timeout and screen off from 30min to 15 sec... Quite the opposite... Running liquid smooth 4.4.4 galaxy s3 noop, ondemandplus, min and max 1836mhz. 6000 quadrant score!

Hosed my phone Would really appreciate some help here: I installed this app looking for something to keep google maps awake while driving. It didn't work... in fact it caused the opposite problem. When unplugged it would keep my screen awake, but when plugged in (as is frequently the case in my car) it would sleep in 2 seconds. Had to uninstall it. But now, after uninstalling it, my phone never sleeps unless I manually hit the power button. So I'm burning battery needlessly all the time - very frustrating. It's as if the uninstall process didn't successfully revert whatever internal power settings that were changed by the product. I'm running a Samsung Galaxy S3, Android 4.3, Verizon Wireless.
