    READ THE INFORMATION INSIDE THE APPLICATION FIRST. 



    DESCRIPTION : 



    This application allows to virtually disable the proximity sensor while in call, made and received and to re enable at will. This application allows the user to make and receive calls directly with speakerphone powered thus the proximity sensor will not power the screen down. This application also allows the user to select the proximity sensor to control the screen. The screen can be selected to be always powered or not. 



    When the speaker when in call is chosen, all calls made and received will be made with a powered speakerphone and the proximity sensor will not power the screen down when a call is made or received. The volume of the speaker can be adjusted to preserve battery energy. The device can be put in a zip bag and run while in the zip bag without taken out. This is great for wet weather and in a dusty and unfriendly environment. This also is a great health and personal hygiene option as the device will not be contaminated by ear wax and other sources of contamination and bacteria. 



    When proximity sensor control is chosen, the screen of the phone powers down when there is an object close to the proximity sensor. Thus, the screen will automatically power down when the phone is put in the pocket or put screen down on the table. This works regardless whether the user has chosen to keep the screen to be always powered  or whether the screen is normally controlled by the OS. When the phone is away from and object, the screen powers automatically unless the screen has previously been powered down not by the proximity sensor but by other means, such as the OS or a press on the Power Button. 



    When the screen has been chosen to be always powered, the user can use the phone as a flash light which can easily be turned on by, say, placing the phone close to the chest. This way, the user can shine light for a while to see around, then, quickly stop the light and then, whenever needed, to quickly turn the light on again with just a movement of one hand and not by the power button although the power button will also 

work as set up. This way, the user would save battery energy as compared to constantly flashing light which may not be needed. The power button still works but the proximity sensor, when used as a switch, is easier to use than the power button.

    More information is available in the application.

I announce version 3.0 of the application is available at the same places for download and install.

Version 3.0 allows to really or virtually disable the proximity sensor while in calls, made and received and to re enable at will with a click of a button and without restarts. This application does not require any third party software in general. However, only one menu selection, which really disallows the proximity sensor when in calls, made or received, requires XDA Framework and Xposed Installer and Xposed Jar. The application will work without these too.

I announce a new Version 4.0 of the application for Android : Proximity Sensor Accelerometer.

READ THE INFORMATION INSIDE THE APPLICATION FIRST.

Really or virtually disable the proximity sensor while in calls, made and received. Keep the proximity sensor disabled more permanently. Enable at will with a click and without restarts. Use a shaker control of the screen. Use proximity sensor control of the screen.

PLEASE, NOTE, SOME MENU SELECTIONS CONSUME BATTERY ENERGY OTHERS DO NOT. ALL THESE ARE EXPLAINED IN THE INFORMATION IN THE APPLICATION. USE THE MENU SELECTIONS WHICH CONSUME ENERGY TEMPORARILY OR WHEN THE DEVICE IS POWERED BY AN EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE.

This application does not require any third party software in general. However, only two menu selections, which really disallows the proximity sensor require XDA Framework and Xposed Installer and Xposed Jar. THERE ARE EQUIVALENT MENU SELECTIONS WHICH DO SIMILAR ACTIONS WITHOUT THE NEED TO INSTALL THESE NOR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE.

This application allows the user to make and receive calls with proximity sensor disabled. Also with speaker powered automatically thus the proximity sensor does not power the screen down. This application allows the user to select the accelerometer or the proximity sensor to control the screen. Also to keep the screen always powered.

When the speaker when in call is chosen, all calls made and received will be made with a powered speaker and the proximity sensor will not power the screen down when a call is made or received. The volume of the speaker can be adjusted to preserve battery energy. The standard speaker click can be used to power the speaker down. The device can be put in a zip bag and run while in the zip bag without taken out. This is great for wet weather and in a dusty and unfriendly environment. This also is a great health and personal hygiene option as the device will not be contaminated by ear wax and other sources of contamination and bacteria.

When proximity sensor control of the screen is chosen, the screen of the phone powers down when there is an object close to the proximity sensor. Thus, the screen will automatically power down when the phone is put in the pocket or put screen down on the table. This works regardless whether the user has chosen to keep the screen to be always powered or whether the screen is normally controlled by the OS. When the phone is away from and object, the screen powers automatically unless the screen has previously been powered down not by the proximity sensor but by other means, such as the OS or a press on the Power Button. When, in addition, the screen has been chosen to be always powered, the user can use the phone as a flash light which can easily be turned on by, say, placing the phone close to the chest. This way, the user can shine light for a while to see around, then, quickly stop the light and then, whenever needed, to quickly turn the light on again with just a movement of one hand and not by the power button although the power button will also work as set up. This way, the user would save battery energy as compared to constantly flashing light which may not be needed. The power button still works but the proximity sensor, when used
as a switch, is easier to use than the power button.

When accelerometer sensor control of the screen is chosen, the device works as a shaker : shake to power the screen down and shake again to power the screen up. The shake parameters, such as amplitude, peak count, measurement period, etcetera, can be adjusted to prevent accidental power up or down in most or all environments.

More information is available in the application.
