Description

Awake your phone by tilt only, using G-sensor!

The idea:
To read new text message, without a single touch of the screen or a button.
No need to press a button,
No need to unlock the phone typing pin code or swiping symbols,
No need to drag down notification bar,
No need to click messaging apps or any notifications.

The app uses the G-sensor to determine actual tilt of the phone and if is in a preset position, turns the screen on, unlocks the phone and displays new text message (if any). The app displays only one message at a time (the most recent unread message).

If there is no new text messages the app turns on the screen and unlocks it only. You can use it to display any other app or screen previously left opened. You can even disable the feature to display new text message after automated turn on.

Unlocking the phone by tilt only is potentially unsafe. From that reason the app is able to work in selected areas only (using Wi-Fi networks). You can define which Wi-Fi network is allowed and/or which is denied. So, the app may work only in a specified location or except specified location.

Aside of the G-sensor, the app can use proximity sensor to prevent from accidental unlocks (i.e. while the phone is in a pocket)

Unlock position is fully configurable as long as the tolerance of that position.

To perform successful unlock, the phone must be IN the unlock position for at least half second, and its previous position should be OTHER than the unlock position for at least half second. If proximity sensor is in use, the phone can not be covered during unlocking by tilt. Additionally, the currently used Wi-Fi network cannot be denied.

The proximity sensor can be used also to lock the screen back after successful unlock (touchless lock option). This feature allows you to pull the phone out of pocket, read new text message (or watch other apps) then push the phone back to pocket. All without a single touch of the screen or button, using one hand only!

Limitations:
New – “Power efficient – continuous mode” added in version 1.4. Read more bellow.
Because of battery lifetime impact the app is armed only for a given time from the last phone activity. This time is called “Sensors standby time” and is restored every time you turn screen off pressing power button manually or receiving a text message.
If your last activity with the phone (or last text message) was 2 hours ago, and the “Sensors standby time” is set to 1 hour only, the app will NOT be able to turn the screen on and unlock it because sensors are no longer powered and your phone is in a sleep mode saving battery lifetime.

The app is a background service which must be started by the user. It will not start itself (i.e. when rebooting the phone)

Occasionally you may experience some unwanted screen locks (for example when pressing HOME button after successful unlock). This is because 3rd party application can not perform full unlock of the phone programmatically (as you can do manually, swiping symbol or typing pin code).

The differences between full and free version are:
– Free version works for 12 hours then disable the Tilt & Read service and displays “Purchase” dialog. The service can be re-enabled easily and the app can work for another 12 hours. There are no limitations in the number of times the service was re-enabled but purchasing full version is strongly recommended.
– Full version requires license, if not licensed then works as free version. Full version do not display any “purchase” buttons, “free” labels and can work indefinitely.

The “Power efficient – continuous mode” is available at the end of “Standby time” scale. It allows you to use the app 24/7 with a minimal impact to the battery lifetime!

    Timesheet sounds to be an interesting application! Time tracking tools that will hopefully save our time, money and increase our efficiency. Tracking our daily activities with a time management software helps to achieve more productivity.
    I have been using Replicon software for time recording. This software for making instant payments and generating invoices. It is also efficient at making time sheets and tracking your performance.

    Hmm… GoToMyPC is a good remote support software. Additionally, tools like RHUB remote support servers can also be used for remotely accessing computers. It works well.

    This app works great, I have been using it for two weeks with no problem to my Z 10. I opened this site on my blackberry’s browser, down loaded directly to my phone. I opened it under my downloads and hit run. It installed itself correctly to my phone and also works with or without the Square card reader.

    I have had people ask me to clarify using this app. I opened Good eReader ‘s on my BB Z10 browser. Hit download under the Square app. Then simply opened it under my Downloads on my BB Z10. It literally installed itself. I have been using it daily for months. It does work on my BB Z-1. I installed the new version a few days ago. It is even better and has the new Square features the old app didn’t.
