What's new in this version (1.55):
- Added new option to set custom screen timeout setting from app
- Minor layout bug fixes
- Other minor bug fixes
Screen on toggler is basically a replacement tool for the default search button on your android phone when you long press it. It allows you to quickly toggle your screen's timeout from always ON to your screen timeout's setting and vice versa.
Once installed, press and hold the search button on your android phone and a dialog will appear. Then select screen on toggler to toggle between always ON and your original screen timeout setting. You may also set it as the default action when you long press your search button, but it is recommended NOT to set as the default action, so that you may use it in conjunction with other search button replacement tools such as Wifi Toggler (also by me). You may clear the default setting for Screen On Toggler by going to the Manage Applications area, select screen on toggler and scroll down and click on the "Clear Defaults" button. This should restore the selection dialog when you long press the search button.
To restore the timeout setting to your original setting, you may either touch on the screen on toggler icon on your android's notification bar OR you can long press your search button and select the screen on toggler again, to toggle it. It's that simple.
Thanks to all who have given their feedback and bug reports so far, I hope the latest release (v1.43) would have fixed all the issues that you guys out there are facing. If you still encounter issues, do let me know and I'll try my best to solve it ASAP. Cheers.
Notice: If you have other similar apps or widgets that performs similar functions (that allows you to change the screen timeout, please temporarily remove them / disable them if you encounter any issues with Screen On Toggler).

Very good idea
Best app in this category, works great, does exactly what it says and doesn't use much battery power, much better and easier than screebl
No switching menus or confusion. Just hold down the button and it turns on or off. Fantastic Application! Samsung Vibrant!!
Excellent, also puts icon in notification bar for easy access
Does what it says. I seldom use it though
Excellent! HTC Hero.
Perfect. Now i can play chess and read news articles w/o touching the screen every 5 seconds
Works perfectly on my HTC Wildfire. Great stuff.
Doesn't work with search button on fascinate, but does what I need it to. Puts an icon in task bar so I don't forget when it's on!
Works great for apps such as Google maps or anything else the screen needs to stay on for. LG Optimus M
