Wakey is an app for people who want to use their devices without the hassle of the screen turning off constantly.
Devices have a screen timeout that is used to prevent screens from using all your battery while you're not using your device. This is quite useful, but often it can interfere with the usability of the device and turn off your screen while you're using it.
Wakey will keep your screen awake when you need it the most, allowing you to have a smooth experience while using your phone or tablet.
-- Note: Want early access to new releases? I'm looking for beta testers! Go to https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.doublep.wakey and click "Become a Tester" to get releases before everyone else. --
The app has several features that will make your life even easier:
• AppWake (premium feature)
AppWake is the most popular feature in Wakey, it helps you automate the process
of keeping the screen awake. You just have to choose which apps should keep your screen awake and enable AppWake.
Let's say you chose the browser app and news reading app, whenever you use those apps, AppWake will enable Wakey and your screen will stay on while using those apps, as soon as you leave the app your screen will restore it's default screen timeout.
• ChargeWake (premium feature)
ChargeWake will keep your phone awake when it's charging.
• CPU Mode
CPU Mode will keep only your CPU awake (not the screen), this is useful when downloading large files or performing some background work, when you finish the task turn it off or the CPU will stay on and use battery.
• Dimmable Mode
Dimmable Mode will keep your screen awake, but will enable dimming as defined in your display settings. This allows you to see your screen while reducing battery impact.
• Darkest Mode
Darkest Mode will keep your screen awake, and will dim the screen as much as possible, plus will default to a all-black screen. This allows you to interact with the device, yet still see your notifications and alerts, and interact with your phone - all while minimizing battery impact.
• Full Bright Mode
Full Bright Mode will keep your screen awake, and will set the screen to be as bright as possible. This mode is great for watching videos or looking at family photos - but watch out, leaving your screen on full brightness for long will cause your battery to discharge rapidly!
Wakey is memory and battery friendly - it will keep the screen awake only when you need it. When you don't need it any more just tap the bulb, or turn it off from the notification. You can also enable and disable it from the widget.WARNING!:
Wakey might misbehave with task killers or if you swipe it away from the recent apps. If you experience problems please email me.
Keep your screen on with Wakey.
Premium users can now opt to have a persistent notification - off by default, but it's there if you want it.
Updated licensing: let me know ([email protected]
) if you are a premium user but not seeing the premium version; there may be bugs. (Note - in the past couple releases, I've fixed a few, and now I'm confident it's working well.)
I've had to kill the option to hide "AppWake" notification: it's is required to keep AppWake alive.
Fixed a bug where ChargeWake wasn't active after a restart.
