What's new in this version (1.2):

Updated app icon.

Description

Completely dim the screen without locking the phone with Screen Off. Go dark and wake up with one touch! Let Screen Off save you on number of clicks/touches as well as save your phone battery.

Here's a likely scenario for Screen Off use:
Leave your music player screen up in the foreground and still go completely dark without locking the phone with the power button or having it lock on you automatically. This makes it super easy to get back to that music player with just a single tap of the screen, without having to hit the power button and unlock the phone, all while saving your battery life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
How can I activate Screen Off while keeping the other app in the foreground?

A:
Run Screen Off once and you'll see it added to your Notification bar. Now whenever you are using another app (be it a music player or Facebook, etc.) you can go to your Notification bar and select Screen Off to go dark.


Q:
That's great, but how do I close down Screen Off completely now?

A:
Run Screen Off, hit Menu and select Exit. This will remove it from the Notification bar and exit the app completely.


Q:
The screen remains back-lit and/or the buttons stay lit. Can you fix this?

A:
Unfortunately, no. The problem is that there is no way to completely turn off the screen while keeping its touch event handling enabled. The app attempts to emulate the turning off of the screen by adjusting the brightness setting by taking it down to zero. On some phones this works great. However, on others it still keeps the screen back-lit. This is a function of the device and there isn't much I can do about it. Sorry.. :(
