Add me on G+ if you want to discuss new ideas and join “Novum Inceptum Beta Testers” community if you want early access to upcoming features!

Small, innovative and very useful utility, allowing you to perform various actions using the proximity sensor of your device.

Users of Advanced Screen Control would recognize some of the functionality and would appreciate the cleaner UI and the additional features. This is a continuation of my efforts related to the proximity sensor utilization.

Used terms:
“Wave” means to wave (or slide) your hand (or finger) closely in front of the proximity sensor of your device, in accordance with the chosen settings.
“Hold” means to block the proximity sensor and quickly release it after feeling the vibration.

WARNING: Make sure you carefully read the this app description and each of the in-app options' descriptions before use! Some features could render your device unusable if you don't realize what they do!

Key features:
✔ Automatically wake up the device when you take it out of pocket/bag;
✔ Smart Screen On/Off – automatically turn the screen on and off based on close proximity (device is in pocket/bag) and optionally lock the device after set amount of time;
✔ Wave or Hold to:
◦ Music: Play/Pause (Android 3.0 and up), Play Next, Play Previous;
◦ Turn the screen off and lock the device;
◦ Wake up and optionally unlock the device;
◦ Toggle Auto-Rotation On/Off;
◦ Change the screen orientation, without releasing the orientation lock (Android 3.0 and up);
◦ Launch any app;
◦ Toggle the LED light On/Off (if available).
✔ Phone Call:
◦ Answer an incoming call by waving or just by putting the phone to your ear!
◦ Turn on the speaker automatically or by taking the phone away from your ear!
✔ Start/Stop service home screen shortcuts (can be used with Tasker).

NOTICE: HTC devices and low-end devices seem to have slower proximity sensors so you would have to adjust the settings and wave slower, but the app works on every device with functioning proximity sensor!

There are 8 configurable actions – 4 when screen is on and 4 when screen is off.
There are English, German, Bulgarian, Russian, Portuguese, Greek, Spanish, Danish, Dutch and Italian translations so far. Contact me if you want to help translate it to your language!

The app hardly use any battery power. You shouldn't even see it in the statistics.
TO UNINSTALL: Uncheck the “Screen Lock Permission” first!
Please understand that the store ratings are not meant for asking and receiving support! If you have any problems with the app – please email me!

AD SYSTEM: The app is ad-supported. It has a UNIQUE AD SYSTEM, showing an ad in the bottom of the screen after a use, but not more then once every 3 hours. Ads are shown for 8 seconds and have a button for immediate dismissal. By installing the app you agree to see those ads in the way they are shown. There is a “Disable the Ads” option for people who support the development otherwise. Contact me for more information!

Development support:
This app is developed solely by me, initially for personal use, as I couldn't find such anywhere. If you like my work and want to support my efforts – please give a 5 star rating and share it with your friends! You can also use the in-app Donate option! Thanks!

Most of the permissions are self-explanatory and are needed by the app's functionality.
The INTERNET and the LOCATION permissions are needed by the ads.
The ACCOUNTS permission is needed to grant ad-free use to people who support the development otherwise.
The CAMERA permission is for using the LED light.
ROOT is currently required if any ad-blocking is detected and the “Disable the Ads” option is not checked. It will also be used for some new features.
No personal information is collected or sent whatsoever!

    WOW! Thank you very much!
    It works PERFECTLY with my Kindle Fire HD
    I searched all day for a direct download of this apk file for the D-Link SharePort Mobile app to load into my Kindle Fire HD 7″. I’m using it with SharePort function of my new D-Link SharePort Go Mobile Companion Router with Rechargeable Battery ( DIR-506L ). This app is NOT available from Amazon because this app and device combo enables Kindle users to infinitely expand their local storage, Amazon hates that because they’re focused on SELLING you stuff and they’re making it very hard for us to enjoy the content we already own.  I have over 600 DVDs backed up on a storage drive and now I can take any/all of them with me, where ever I go. Thanks again!!!

  • Thanks for creating such a cool post that is admittedly o.k. written are referring plenty of friends concerning this.
