Ever wanted to turn off the screen while your device keeps playing music videos, but it immediately stops playback when you lock the screen?

> This is the app you are looking for <

By turning off the screen you can save huge amounts of battery!

From now on, I'll refer to Black Screen of Life as BSoL.

BSoL is really simple to use:

1. Enable BSoL.

2. Run your app.

3. Block the proximity sensor (you can put it in your pocket, turn it face down on the table, put a piece of paper above the proximity sensor, etc).

4. BAM! Screen is off and your app is running!

When the proximity sensor becomes unblocked, the screen is automatically turned on.

Make sure you are blocking the correct sensor. Some users thought that BSoL did not work because they were blocking the camera or the light sensor. The proximity sensor is usually located near the earpiece.

#nodesignerhere, so the application is a little derpy. But since it will mostly run in the background, even if you don't like it (unlikely :P ), you won't be very bothered.

As you might have already noticed, BSoL requires a device with a proximity sensor in order to work.

How people are using BSoL:

- Play YouTube with the screen off;

- Chromecast to the TV and then turn off the smartphone's screen;

- Listen to TedTalks with the screen off;

- Turning off the screen in games with unskippable and repeated content;

- Chat in WhatsApp Web version without getting disconnected;

- Simply stop using the lock button at all (although I don't recommend this, as it may be insecure).


App ChangeLog

  • - fixed some bugs;
    - improved BSoL so that it does not get killed by the system while it is active;

Reviews From google play store

Room for improvement It would be nice to see the ability to pause bsol and not have to turn it off and on again every time you need it. Also adding a feature where you could just turn the screen off without having to use the censors would be nice. 5 stars when you add these features. (You can add the pause and turn screen off features from the notifications, if you do decide to add them)

This app has good potential. However, I keep the phone on the desk in front of me when I use it and noticed that the screen will turn back on after anywhere between 10-60 minutes or so and I'll have to re-block the proximity sensor again. Also, signing up for the premium doesn't fix it.

Only work the first time I'm not sure what happened but after restarting my phone this app no longer working. I tried enabling the compatibility mode but the problem remains. The screen either turned back on as soon as I moved my finger away from the proximity sensor or when the screen is off YouTube playback also stops.

FAN-FRIGGIN-TASTIC!! Brilliant! Never reviewed an app before but this is as perfect as it gets; does EXACTLY what it says on the tin. Definitely worth £1.49. Why my phone doesn't just do this out the box is beyond me!?. Highly recommended.

Not working Although there are only positive reviews, truth is, app is not working at all. Videos keep turning off when I turn the screen off, tried on multiple devices and it didn't work on neither of them. I don't know how everybody is using it, it seems to me these are fake reviews. Sorry, uninstalled

BSoL ... RSoA Love this app as it is extremely useful. Please don't force ad watching with a Red Screen of Annoyance. I would watch an ad simply due to the polite, occasional request. I got annoyed when I found out it is forced with the RSoA.

Could be better! Oh boy this app is great, too bad it is not compatible with S-View flip covers... also the texts are very ugly and hard to read.

Holds screen to ransom Apps stops functioning while enabled and doesn't work until you watch video ads. That would be fine say one a day? But to ask 2 - 4 times a day is terrible.

Great app! It is very useful if you want to hear those long music compilation videos on YouTube without the screen on. Needless to say, one can discover many more uses for the same. Great job.

Does Its Job Admirably Admittedly, it's a very simple job, but it's done well nonetheless. I rather like the MS-Paint UI aesthetic, it fits the tone of the application. Definitely worth the premium version though, otherwise the ads can get a little but obnoxious, but it's money well spent.

For the apps (like YouTube most notably) that shut off the sound when the screen is off, this is perfect. I use it with sleep aid apps that have the same issue. Great work!

This is a necessary app for anyone that uses YouTube for music. This app allows your phone to go to sleep while still being able to listen to music. By putting your phone to sleep, you'll be able to listen to your music and save battery without having the video playing

Does what it's supposed to. I just want to see the dev get creative with what features to add. I'm sure there is some things that the majority of his download base would want.

Intrusive Ads A pretty fussy battery saver, so love the app and its simplicity - it's a great life hack around YT not working with sleep mode. However the ads "holding the screen to ransom" like Salman already said is both un-called for and a bloody nuisance tbh. No problem as a once off but annoyed at it becoming a constant occurance. That's what cost it that fifth star for me.

Constant pop ups Will ask you to rate every time you open the app. It works perfectly other than the constant nagging to rate.

Awesome This app is the best. It definitely saves on your battery. We all know that YouTube drains your battery like crazy. Well, with this app it won't. This app is a must have!!!!

It doesn't work. Used it with youtube, and YouTube recognized it and tried to get me to pay $10 a month after pausing the video.

Great Works perfect. Just needs a pay version to get rid of the annoying popups

Chill with the Ads! Really nice app, very helpful when your too lazy to press the lock button, you can listen to YouTube videos without wasting too much battery. But the Ads.... Every other time you open it you have to look at an ad that usually doesn't even load!

Just what I've been looking for! Perfect for saving battery while (just) listening to video material such as lectures, YouTube music etc., which for me is most of the time of running videos. Chapeau to the developer for targeting this need.
