Wakey is an app thought for people that 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.

The app has several features that will make your life even easier:
• AutoWake (premium feature)
AutoWake 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 AutoWake.
Let's say you chose the browser app and news reading app, whenever you use those apps, Autowake 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.
• CpuWake (premium feature)
