Just missing a single thing... Needs a 'first time only' option, so that it will only perform an action on a change in environment. Examples: If you move into a dark environment, it will turn off, but if you manually wake it up after it's turned off, it will stay awake. And visa-versa, if it's in a light environment and the screen times out, it won't wake it back up.

Sam Note

Love the functionality when it works I have 10" tablet and magnetic flip cover which has magnets at the back side and at the lower front of the flip cover (Landscape position) and the sensor itself is near the top left of the phone, so the magnetic sensor doesn't seem to get values from them.. so for that reason i have taped a very small magnet on the flip cover in a way that when i close the flip cover it comes closer to sensor and hence sensor value goes very high (more than 1200, as measured by this app itself) and when opened value gets lesser .....BUT The problem its that after some time of usage the functionality gets reversed i.e it shows more value when it should show less, hence malfunction (opposite functionality)....i doubt it is caused by the inbuilt magnets inside the flip is there anyway to overcome this? So that it only takes value from the magnet which i have taped (hint: always consider higher value, as the inbuilt magnet will always have less value), i don't know if i m talking is rubbish,,,but if you could do something about it, gonna be really awesome for tablet users,,, Galaxy note 10.1 n8000 Omni rom kitkat 4.4.2

Nishit Patel

Very hard to understand! Well I installed it, selected the sensor, the Proximity sensor was working though doesn't do anything... I flipped it, kept in pocket but nothing; instead of that the apps opened up due to no locking when kept in pocket.

Siddharth Singh

Speechless Works beautifully on my nexus 4.... The proximity flip cover mode is off the charts... Nothing could be better....a little suggestion here... Give users an option to change voice of the "call out the name on unlock"thing... Not too bad on the battery either... Well done akshay.... Definitely going for full version B-)

Sam Robbins

Cannot lock Unfortunately if you press the lock button on your phone it will instantly unlock again, other than that a very good app

Rizwan Siddiqui

Disappointment Light sensor not working everytime on dell venue 8 3840 LTE currently on KITKAT. Would b great if developer fix it. Cannot use proximity as it does not have 1.

Dan Epstein

I gave it 4 stars in the past It used to work reasonably well when I was running Kitkat. I upgraded to Lollipop and it is unlocking screen by proximity sensor maybe one out of ten times. I have the AT&T Galaxy S4.

Ajay Meena

Some functions are confusing...but very feature rich app Intelligently coded...needs bit refining...overall liked it...

Bang Nguyen

Great app and works except the Ignore App List doesn't seem to work I set the Lock/Unlock to Proximity sensor, and no matter what I do the apps in Ignore App List doesn't seem to have an effect. Same with Night Mode - as if these two functions are being ignored being set. Please fix! Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747M on JellyBean 4.3 Stock.

Tumesh Kakkar

Not working with my device There should be setting for -ve magnetic field , i.e. it only locks when magnetic field is more 10 where I needed it to be less than 10, in normal conditions it shows 40+ field, that I will use set unlock threshold. So just add a scaling protocol. Best is to provide a scaling range (min and max threshold each for locking and unlock) . Updated: can you please release an update with above features.

Tyrone Josephs

Need to get it off This is the worst app ever doesn't work for me one bit can somebody tell me how to uninstall it?

Pranav Jindal

works quite perfect with my flip cover Been using it for a day, I can say it works perfect. Doesn't get auto killed, auto starts on boot, doesn't kills battery ( I use proximity only) I've tried many but this worked great. Thumbs up. Con: A lot of options are overwhelming for a novice user.

Martin Giger

Can't calibrate it Calibrating the magnet sensor especially for the lock value is pretty hard. Actualy impossible, as the cover is laying on the device at the point you want the app to lock the phone. Some kind of wizzard who does the calibration automatically (vibrate when calibration for locking is done) would be nice. Further I can' access the Padfine Station's light sensor through the app. It only reads the primary light sensor which is of course covered up as the phone is resting in the back of the station.

Alex Bigham

Does not work It unlocks my screen only once out of 10 tries..

Jitendra Kumar

Almost flawless performance. Till now except for a few times when I needed to manually start it, I almost forgot that this app is there and is working continuously in background.

Mark James Rose

Brilliant! Works perfectly for me (which is great, because lots of apps of this type don't work consistently).

Kerim Karlyyev

Galaxy S5 Locks pefectly but never unlocks, maybe I'm doing something wrong

Javed Ahmed

Night mode does not work Other stuff Works well

Sachin Rastogi

Not system persistent It shuts down by itself. Happened in my samsyng galaxy mega 5.8 and grand 1. The active icon always shows but it doesn't work always. Gesture failure. Worked good in Intex mobiles.

Arun Baboolall

Best lock app Rilly z best one... z app n its options..

Kevin P

Brilliant app ! This app works almost perfectly on my Sony Z Ultra Kitkat 4.4.4 stock. Using less battery is what I hope for upcoming updates. You might have to go through lots of trials and errors to get best setting for your devices. "Save/Restore Settings" is what this app missing so far, as I've spent a lot of times to find my best setting and don't want to lose it if reinstalling the app is required.

Harshit Singh

Only night mode can't work

Aileen de Leon-Mendoza

Best Locker App so far! After trying several other apps, so far this free app works best for my device Nexus 5 . But it still has some issues that must be addressed. Sometimes it has to be restarted because for no apparent reason it would just stop working. Other than that I would have rated it 5 ★.

Stuart Thompson

Great app Really love this app, makes my phone feel alive. Just wakes up when I need it or goes off with a sweep of my hand.

Pranjal Pawar

Ok ok Ignore app list is not working on xiaomi mi3

Srivathsan Jayaraman

Beautiful It works. That alone sets it apart from everything

Nisar Qasmi

Excellent... The only app needed by any flip-coverer. Can you make the status bar icon in round shaped? It will match will popular apps and will look more beautiful. Thanks a lit for the app. Kindly add donate option...

Sergioe Segura

Lock instantly The application is great! I can lock my screen just covering the light sensor, and reactivate it whenever I want. Wonderful! I will wait the time of trial.

david piekuss

Wow Really like this app wanted the knock knock feature to come out on my z1 but couldn't wait around and have a flip case and a small button to turn screen on and this app solves all my problems great app well worth buying

Yug Patel

! Works really nice dev! Will check battery usage after a usage of a few days! Just one suggestion: can you add a feature in which it skips the lockscreen? Because I really find that convenient and i have to disable my lock screen for that.. Also, Some voice commands or claps or something would be great.. Using My snapdragon 800's low power voice control would be great for umlocking

Faisal Alghaim

It's the best app ever thanks It's the best app I have ever downloaded thank you so much for your effort


Awesome app At the time when I have installed this app I don't have to use power button... Really amazing app

muhammad riaz

Good one Lesser usage of power button that's appealing

whodini mcgee

TRIAL ware in title so I wouldn't waste my time

Timitri Whiteside

Alatel Pop Icon Pretty cool locking app.

Hans Cappelle

Not working well on nexus 7 and hard to understand Configuration is not so easy. I had good results on nexus 4 and 5 but doesn't work well on nexus 7 where I had to configure it for using the light sensor instead of proximity.

Ilyas Idris

The best Simply the best, after install-uninstall similar app. Just need more option to auto start after rebooting.

Alexander Laxgang

Yay it's working ? I love it! It saves me lot of time and it's easy to use. There aren't any adds and nothing other like that, so it's simply, free and just working. :)

Renee Atkinson

Awesome Works really well. Its very convenient

Sergey Yegres

Ugly translated and buggy (stops too often). Reports sent. Also it takes "calibrated" magnetic sensor data instead of "uncalibrated" (Samsung devices). As a result, magnetic lock is unusable. :(

Andy Ruzhella

Great Pls add function so we can unlock the screen by tapping twice/triple the screen. Thx dev

Juxy Lofty

Works flawlessly! The best app of its kind in playstore. Tried the rest but these similar apps always has some bugs. This one works flawlessly on my phone. You won't even notice that it's activated after sometime. My only advise is not to play with its default settings. I chose other sensors but it cause my screen to timeout almost immediately. Couldn't access the app again to undo my changes. Had to manually remove battery to force a reboot to undo my changes. Be warned! Otherwise the best for me. Thks developer.

Arvids Kivkucans

Cozy features, that saves the hassle Enhances sensory features for battery consumption and time saving user friendly experience.

Ira name

Great App! It works very well. It does the job, plus it has a wide range of settings.

Mohammad Muzammil

Dont work when It doesn't work when I clean the ram of my mobile. Kindly add a function to auto start after cleaning the ram. Otherwise it's working awesomely!

Mạc Thanh Tùng

Will it be possible to use smoothly on android 5.0.2 ? Please !

Vince S

Not quite configurable enough for me I need a locker that locks when the flip cover has been closed for more than 5s (to prevent it locking if I briefly have my hand over it while playing a game) then unlocks instantly when the cover is opened. This app looks nice for what it is but it looks like I need to find another or use Tasker.

Mono Lourembam

Very very good.. Dude, this one is the one i've been waiting 4. Damn good. 5 star, if only the status bar sign is different, instead of 2nd bracket sign.

Eddie Tan

I'm using go locker for my lock screen and sometime when I try to unlock the screen just blackout by itself. I only love the vibrate function of this app when the phone lock by itself.

Kapil Verma

Great work!!!! Hey can you come up with something like s view window option As I am using s view cover (china made single window s view same like note3) but have to use with a "smart view cover" app which is not battery friendly.


App has potential but... 1. App was last updated on Feb 19, 2014? 2. Does not work on my LG G3 with Android v.6.0 3. More of that it insanely consumes battery around 40mA 4. Light sensor cannot be configured at all, I assume that my phone does not have it 5. Shake sensor works sporadically, sometimes does not work 6. Magnetic does not work too 7. The only one that works is proximate sensor, but it eats battery like a crazy 8. And the last - the mode of what sensors are working does not show in any way, so the user cannot clearly define and see what sensor is active what is not. Sorry, but this app appeared not very user friendly and configurable for me. Uninstalled and went to look for better lock/unlock application.

William Fong

Kitkat not stable Not stable on kitkat ,listening messages in whatsapp lock the screen even its under exception list!!!

Josh Sutterfield

Horrendous Uninstalled but my regular lockscreen no longer locks even after reboot. Menu had no clarity in words or even logic. Could not even tell what settings were set. Tutorials not tutorials.

Aman Sharma

Does what it says...great app..but would have been better if I did not had to keep it on my notification bar..please do something regarding this if you can..and thank you for prwsenting such a great app..

Makarand Joshi

Unreliable It's always a hot or miss. Very unreliable. Especially the unlock function. Lock works well.

Vex Veximus

Great app Finally my LG L Fino always wake up instant! Tnx

Nigar Sultana

Nice App! I like the creative thoughts! Need some innovative frature addition at notification bar like clean master, Battery Doctor, etc. not just "automaton locker" otherwise waste of space...

Kurtis Knobel

Only one that works Tried others with no success. Only one that works every time
