    Screen Control is an app that will turn the screen on or off using the proximity sensor.

    - The screen will automatically turn off when it detects being inside a pocket or face down on a table. It will also automatically turn back on when removed from these conditions.
    - You can wave your hand over the sensor to turn on and off as well.
    - Sensor is deactivated when the phone is in landscape mode to prevent accidental reads.
    - Widget (Only turns off the screen and must have device admin enabled)
    - Simple UI
    - Simple setup
    - No ads
    - Small file size

    To uninstall this application, you HAVE to remove the device admin.

    i like the idea but am not sure what to use it for...
    could you give me some suggestions on where and how it wold be useful?
    Instead of having to press the power button to wake the phone, you can just shake it. With the newer version you can also turn off the screen by an icon.

    I know when you have a case on your device, it makes it hard to press down on the power button at times. This app just makes this process much simpler.
