ok, still in beta while testing the latest release...
1... I've added notification checks,
no notifications for "extreme mode" (never wakes up unless you say so)
every 60 mins for "way more battery life"
every 20 minute for "inbetween thanks"
i can change the values to fine tune it based on how people find these...
One more thing, to try and solve the 4.2.2 kitkat bug where Wifi locks up if you try to turn it off at the same time you switch it on.. yes you can if quick enough lock up wifi at a system level simply by quickly pressing wifi (i tried, it did, not impressed)
so i added an 800ms delay if it detects you turned the screen off or on too quickly and will add a forced delay... it might need longer, hence another reason for staying in beta...
other than that, fingers crossed, for now one fully complete working app! with wakeups to see if you have facebook/email etc notifications (but i got a feeling facebook only alerts you of them if the screen is on, since this app keeps the screen off.... who knows i can make it turn the screen on? enjoy!
Now it comes with a silly icon which android apparently gives preference to, right now (well the old ones) have a regular service, but it turns out if you give it a silly little icon, android is less likely to shut down the service, so it's either risk android killing the app and having a flat battery or have a silly little icon which means the service should only be killed off as last resort!
Improved Anti Theft/Stolen features, sending on will enable all your hardware to give precise location when used with another 3rd party app such as Where's My Droid, this app will turn on gps, modem, wifi
and do everything it can to get a GPS location either via modem or wifi and agps, once you get the address you can then send off, and it will return the phone back to it's original state until the screen goes off and then the app takes over as normal giving you huge battery savings...
It switches off all your hardware services when the screen goes off, this means huge power savings! make your battery last twice as long with light usage, survival even, if you're stuck or trapped somewhere do you really want your battery dead in 2 hours because you forgot to turn off wifi! - this could help your survival! go bed with 94% wake up with 93% depending on how old the battery is...
Remember, if you lose your phone send the sms "on" to your phone, then use where's my droid or similar get your location be lost or stolen, then send "off" without the " " to return your phone to battery saving mode.... i might add "alloff" option in the next version to force all hardware services off, for example the service may have stopped and you absolutely want to make sure you conserve all remaining battery.. If you have suggestions leave them in the comments! - thanks for trying out our app!
(Hopefully fixed this with an 800m delay)
Do not rapidly switch on and off the screen, the app works on a 3 second delay, you will clog up the screen and possibly cause the wifi service (yes android service) to get locked up stuck in either on or off (very annoying, but if you must, please do it's your phone after all!)
But, in order to do it, your phone has to be rooted sorry!
