Differences between Pro and Free versions?

- Set the dimmed and touched screen dimness
- Set the dimmed and touched text colour
- Option to show Seconds as well as Hours and Minutes.
- Stay awake option on battery and power.
- Option to show the status bar when the screen is touched (to see/check your notifications)
- Option to pop YANC Pro to the front when power is connected, after a certain time.
- Long-press the time to toggle between an always on 'day mode' and the normal night clock. Note that day mode will dim with your normal Android screen dimming settings.
- Do Not Disturb option to mute Ringer and Notification. An icon is shown in the display when this is enabled

Some Notes about Stay Awake
===========================

The Stay Awake option will allow YANC to keep running, when it is on battery. A battery level indicator, shown next to the date, indicates that you have Stay Awake enabled.

If you are on battery and the battery level drops below 25%, then the device will remove the wake lock and it should switch off after the normal screen timeout.

Please test this feature, at a non-critical time, to ensure that this works on your device. Whilst we've taken every precaution to ensure this works, we cannot be held responsible if you leave this running and it drains your battery making you late for your wedding/work/lottery purchase/Mother-in-Law visit (*)

* Delete as appropriate or replace with worst case scenario.

HTC Sensation + ICS + Button Dimming

There is no easy solution for this as HTC appear to have hardwired the light sensor to the buttons. However, there are some things you can do to work around this if you want button dimming:

1) You can't use 'Auto' light sensor. So turn this off in the Settings->Display.
2) You can't start YANC in the dark and have button dimming. Start YANC in a normally lit room and let it timeout. The buttons should dim too. You can now turn off the lights, sleep tight. However, if you touch the screen in the dark, the buttons will remain lit.

If the button dimming isn't working, even in the light, then start YANC and press the power button to switch off the phone. It should go to the lock screen and you can then navigate back to YANC. Button dimming should now work.

Permissions

It needs to be able to read and write Settings to turn off Auto-Brightness otherwise it will not dim the screen.

The ability to turn off the screen requires a Device Administrator permission.

It uses a Wake Lock to keep the screen on.

5* if the button dimming can be fixed Great app. I upgraded from HTC desire to One S to find they removed the night clock. Don't know why but this app is a perfect substitute. Please fix the button dimming though!

Exactly what I wanted, especially after upgrading Exactly what I wanted, especially after upgrading from Desire to Sensation, now have a night clock again. Unfortunately since HTC Sensation upgraded to ICS the buttons (Home, Settings, Return etc) no longer dim when YANC is active.
