WaveUp is an app that 
 - switches the screen on - when you 
 over the proximity sensor.nnI have developed this app because I wanted to avoid pressing the power button just to take a look at the watch - which I happen to do a lot on my phone. There are already other apps that do exactly this - and even more. I was inspired by Gravity Screen OnOff, which is a 
 app. However, I am a huge fan of open source software and try to install free software (free as in freedom, not only free as in free beer) on my phone if possible. I wasn't able to find an open source app that did this so I just did it myself. If you're interested, you can take a look at the code:nhttps:gitlab.comjuanitobananaswave-upnnJust wave your hand over the proximity sensor of your phone to turn the screen on. This is called 
 and can be disabled in the settings screen in order to avoid accidental switching on of your screen.nnIt will also turn on the screen when you take your smartphone out of your pocket or purse. This is 
 and can also be disabled in the settings screen.nnBoth of these modes are enabled by default.nnIt also locks your phone and turns off the screen if you cover the proximity sensor for one second (or a specified time). This does not have a special name but can nonetheless be changed in the settings screen too. This is not enabled by default.nnFor those who have never heard proximity sensor before: it is a small thingie that is somewhere near where you put your ear when you speak on the phone. You practically can't see it and it is responsible for telling your phone to switch off the screen when you're on a call.nn
nnThis app uses the Device Administrator permission. Therefore you cannot uninstall WaveUp 'normally'.nnTo uninstall it, just open it and use the 'Uninstall WaveUp' button at the bottom of the menu.nn
nnUnfortunately, some smartphones let the CPU on while listening to the proximity sensor. This is called a 
 and causes considerable battery drain. This isn't my fault and I cannot do anything to change this. Other phones will "go to sleep" when the screen is turned off while still listening to the proximity sensor. In this case, the battery drain is practically zero.nn
nn▸ WAKE_LOCK to turn on the screenn▸ RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED to automatically startup on boot if selectedn▸ READ_PHONE_STATE to suspend WaveUp while on a calln▸ BLUETOOTH (or BLUETOOTH_CONNECT for Android 10 and abve) to detect bluetooth headsets while on a call and not suspend WaveUpn▸ REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS, FOREGROUND_SERVICE and FOREGROUND_SERVICE_SPECIAL_USE to keep running in the background (which is vital for WaveUp in order to always listen to the proximity sensor)n▸ USES_POLICY_FORCE_LOCK to lock the device for Android 8 and below (this forces the user to use a pattern or pin if set)n▸ BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE (Accessibility API) to turn off the screen for Android 9 and above.n▸ REQUEST_DELETE_PACKAGES to uninstall itself (if USES_POLICY_FORCE_LOCK was used)nn
nnThis is the first Android app I have ever written, so beware!nnThis is also my first small contribution to the open source world. Finally!nnI would love if you could give me feedback of any kind or contribute in any way!nnThanks for reading!nnOpen source rocks!!!nn
nnIt would be really cool if you could help translate WaveUp to your language (even the English version could probably be revised).nIt's available for translation as two projects on Transifex: https:www.transifex.comjuanitobananaswaveup and https:www.transifex.comjuanitobananaslibcommon.nn

App ChangeLog

  • New in 3.2.17
  • ★ Remove 'Excluded apps' option from Google Play store versions. F-Droid ones remain fully functional. I'm sorry, but Google doesn't allow WaveUp to read list of installed apps, which is necessary for this.
  • ★ Update German and Russian translations.
  • ★ Add bluetooth permission request for Android 14 and above (needed to know if a headset is connected during a call).

    If it would consistently work, it would be exactly what I want. Sometimes the pocket mode works, other times no. Sometimes the 1 wave works, other times no. I'll be the 1st to admit I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'd be curious to find out if others have experienced same issues. I have Android 10 on the Moto2052. If it makes a difference, I'm using the wallet style case cover to simulate the pocket. I really do like this app & thank you for your work.

    I was looking for something to replace KinScreen ( which replaced GravityScreen ). THIS is the one. So far, so good. What I REALLY like, it's not trying to do too much. The developer mentions it's his first attempt creating an app. It shows, because it's a jem. Well polished and put together, I was really impressed with the excluded apps section.There's another app I have that works hand in hand with this one, "pickRingStop". The ringing goes silent as you pull your phone from your pocket.

    Installed this on my 6yr old Lenovo A850 that still runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Waving my hand on the sensor to wake the screen are mostly hit and miss. Mostly miss. It works for 1-2 attempts, then it won't work anymore if I leave the phone and then try to wake it later on. Pinning the app to always run in the background doesn't help too, but using the same method to turn off the screen works 100% btw. I'm still giving you 5 star for the efforts. Thanks devs!

    Great app! Worked great on my Sony Xperia and works even better on my new LG. Simple to use and all other manufacture installed wake up functions such as double tap on/off and finger print sensor still working flawlessly!

    Very good app 👍. But as you said in description '.... free beer', I should tell you that finally beer is not good, either free or paid. So stay away from consuming alcohol. Ok.
