What's new in this version (1.2):

v1.2 - Added an option to switch the ringer mode (e.g., to vibrate) when phone is holstered.

v1.1 - Should now turn off screen even when phone is locked.

v1.0 - Initial Release


Turns off the screen when you put your phone in a car dock. Also, can switch to alternate ringer mode (e.g., vibrate) at the same time.


So you can put a magnet on your holster, fool your phone into thinking it's in a car dock, and automatically shut off your screen (and change your ringer mode) when you holster your phone.

Note: To access ringer mode settings, start Holster Snooze from the launcher (the screen should blank) and then press the menu key.

Note: You need to make Holster Snooze your default Car Dock application for this to work. If you change your mind later, this default can be cleared in Home Settings > Applications > Manage applications.

Here's what happened:

I ran into a friend a few days ago. He told me how his BlackBerry had died and Verizon replaced it with a Droid 2 Global. Overall, he was happy, but his BlackBerry used to automatically shut off the screen when he holstered it, and his Droid 2 Global didn't. This resulted in his phone battery charge not lasting all day.

I said: I can fix that!

The result is this app. Reasoning that other people might want to do the same as my friend, I offer it here in the market.

Note: I only had my original Droid to test this app. I assume that this app is likely more hardware dependent than others. Please let me know what your device is and whether it works or not for you.
