★★★★★ "Best Ever!
This app saved my phone! My power button wasn't working anymore, so I couldn't unlock or lock my phone, but now I can. It's simple and easy. A life saver." - Franchesca, LGE LG-LS855 (LS855)
★★★★★ "Most useful app ever!
I have been using this for several weeks and can't imagine how I've done before that! It is incredibly useful and very easy to get used to. I use a hard case for my Galaxy Tab 7.7 and its difficult to press the power button, so this is just what I needed! Also the screen rotation saves me so much trouble of constantly enabling and disabling the auto rotation.... AMAZING!" - Chris, Galaxy Tab 7.7 (P-6800)
...for what I wanted. I use NoLED for notifications and didn't want it to accidentally close itself while in my pocket. It's important because my lockscreen is just a fullscreen picture plus a time and date widget. Not even a status/notification bar. The sliders are invisible. Now I can reliably take my phone out my pocket to see if I have any notifications without needing to press a thing. Plus my lockscreen still looks clean and slick. Thanks :-)" - Chris, Samsung Nexus S
The app is optimized to use very little battery power.
This app is developed by a single independent developer to enable fellow Android users to get the most out of their devices. It's development has and will continue to take a lot of time and efforts. Unfortunately Google does not support my country for releasing paid apps, so I am forced to using ads. However, once configured, the app runs as a background service, without any visible UI. Therefore, I have developed a unique, non–intrusive, banner popup ad system, which will not interfere with what you are doing, will NOT add any status bar notifications and is based on how frequent you actually use features of the app. I think this is the fair way to do it. I know some people would prefer an ad–free version and I will release such as soon as Google allows me to. There is also a Donate button for those who would like to support my development. Any proceeds will go towards developing more features, as well as providing support for more devices! Another way to help is to rate the app with 5 stars and share it with your friends. Thank you for your support!
Support: Posting low rating is not the way to get your problem resolved, as I just can't contact you! Please use the email if you need help!
