requires following permissions on your android device.

read battery statistics
Allows an application to read the current low-level battery use data. May allow the application to find out detailed information about which apps you use.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

modify system settings
Allows the app to modify the system's settings data. Malicious apps may corrupt your system's configuration.

    Minute timeouts when Multi tapping the widget are inconsistent. The timeout order whether single, double or triple tapping is different every time. It doesn't matter how I sort the timeouts in settings either.

    Not bad in principle, but it shows "no license" in the quick settings tile when I am logged into my secondary Google account. The devs have to sort this out, it's not so hard for the app to know that I do have a license. If that is fixed, I can give 5 stars. Edit after developer's reply: it is Google's policy that people need separate accounts for different countries. Devs need to act accordingly - and in all other purchased apps this works flawlessly. There's no excuse it doesn't work here.

  3. Vincent Zalzal-avatar

    Exactly what I was looking for, no more, no less: a way to disable screen timeout from the quick settings. I also was pleasantly surprised to see an option to revert back to original settings when screen is turned off, so I just have to use the quick settings once, a minimal number of steps. Thanks!

  4. RadicalRick-avatar

    Yes Yes Yes Yes Wow Wow Wow Love this very simple yet powerful in keeping my screen always open when I need it to be and close when I need it to be Wow Wow worth every penny of it and then some. Wish all apps were this simple! Thank You Guys for a well designed App that cater to my and pretty much everyone else's when they try it for themselves.

    Quick toggle seems to have an issue. When toggle is off (grey 2min shown), notification with fwd, pause, back is shown. When quick toggle is enabled (highlighted blue), no notification is shown.

  6. Aura-avatar

    Hello, This app is looking great, so far, but I'd love to know why the Notification is a media player and why you need network permissions. 5 stars if I can get some information on this, thanks. Reply: Yes I do know that the notification doesn't play Media, but it is a media player notification, I was just wondering about why you chose to use a media player notification. Ah I see, I just wasn't sure as to trust an app that wants my network access that also has some control over the screen.

  7. Tom Husband-avatar

    Tried a lot of these kind of apps but Keep Screen Awake appears to be the best for me. Really like how you can put it in Quick Settings. Nice job!

  8. Gabe Romero-avatar

    Excellent app for keeping screen awake with just one swipe and accessing it from the status bar. No more having to go into display settings to do so. Just what I needed!

  9. Sagi Ronen-avatar

    Works on my LGv30 while other applications didn't. Excellent job and implementation. Love the pull down.

  10. Jay C-avatar

    A favorite from day one! Before finding this gem I had settled with compromising my phones security by setting it's screen shut off time to 30 mins. Nothing worse than your screen going off when you're trying to do something.... Now with this guy I no longer have to worry about someone finding/stealing my phone with the screen on. Highly recommend to anyone tired of their screen shutting off at inopportune times and/or anyone looking to vastly improve their Android's security.

  11. A Google user-avatar

    Pretty nice except that the widget's tap action is a bit inconsistent. Don't understand purpose of latest update. UPDATE: +1 star for developer's responsiveness to inquires.

    Working ok! The notification sound was disturbing but you can turn this off via notification settings (importance to medium : no sound)! Good job! Thanks!

    I absolutely hate it when my screen goes dark when I'm talking on the phone. There are other things I can do while I'm talking on the phone but I have to keep turning the screen back on. So I love this app.

    Didn't work.

  37. Bob Chapman-avatar

    Relatively overpriced for what it does IMO, but it reliably performs a useful function. Would have felt better had it been on sale for $0.99 lol. In any event, this app is definitely a keeper that I anticipate using frequently.

    Great widget for my needs.The only annoyance is license checks.Why disabling internet causes no license on widget? What stats are you collecting guys?

  46. Raymond Smith-avatar

    Settings - display - screen timeout. This app is redundant.

    It worked well on my phone WHEN it was working. Since my phone updated to android 8.1 I get the no license error constantly. On my tablet with android 5.1.1 it works as advertised. Please fix.

  50. AKSHAY BHOPANI-avatar

    This app works like a charm. Earlier was having licence issue but after few hours of setting the app it worked. Problem was connection issue to the server. The app developers replied and sorted my issue.

    Great now that I figured out. Needs better instructions!

  52. Sunny Singh-avatar

    Love the release notes even for small updates. Let's me know what is changing

  53. Arbaz Khan-avatar

    Please provide this feature as an icon in notification panel. I don't know why the android OS has removed this feature but just toggling the timeout period makes life easy alot!

  54. Сергей-avatar

    То, что искал. Спасибо!

  55. Thomas Cowley-avatar

    When I clicked on the widget, nothing happened. Completely useless and won't be installing again.
