With this app, you no longer have to turn on the screen and look for the camera app just when you really need it!

This application allows you to shake your phone in order to trigger various actions! Even if your screen is off, you can still shake it, and it'll work!

The possible actions are:

• Run any application like Gmail, Facebook, Whatsapp and more.
• Turn flashlight on / off.
• Control music player: skip track, start the player etc.
• Call a contact
• Show recent used apps.
• Change ringer mode - ring / vibrate / silent.
• Expand the status bar.
• Turn screen on.
• Turn 3G on / off.

• Turn auto rotate on / off.
• Turn auto brightness on / off.
• Turn speaker on / off (during a call).
• Turn flight mode on / off.
• Turn bluetooth on / off.
• Turn GPS on / off.

You can shake your phone horizontally or vertically, each can be set to trigger a different action.


• Control the shake sensor sensitivity level.
• The shake can work even when the screen is off.
• You can choose to start the application's service at phone startup.
• Choose your favorite shake mode: simple, advance or pro
• Available vibration feedback for the shake.


Q: How much battery Shake is consuming?
A: If you enable the "battery saving mode" option then the battery consumption is very low. If you enable "Active when screen is off" option then the consumption is high. Note the restrictions that appear when you enable these options.

Q: How can I avoid opening something by an accidental shake?
A: You can set the Shake service to work only when screen is on, you can also control the sensitivity of the shake.

Q: I have a problem that sometimes the shake works and sometimes not.
A: You need to set the sensor sensitivity higher. Also make sure the app's service is running.

Q: How can I hide the notification icon on the status bar?
A: Pull down the notification bar. Long press the notification until a box appears. Hit the box that says, “App Info.” Uncheck the box for “Show Notifications.”

Q: How to make the "control music player" action to work on my custom music player?
A: This feature is only working with the default music player

Not satisfactory I installed this app but still i have to use power button to ON my handset is micomax canvas A77

Jose Sevilla

Saved my phone My power button broke so I had to set my phone screen to never sleep. This would kill my battery and perhaps call people by accident. I set this shake to low setting ( 11 ) and this does the trick. Heck I would pay for this app. Thanks guys.

Aseer Awsaf

Good Enough I use it to wake up the screen and it works great on one phone. But on another phone, there is a slight delay when it takes me to the lock scree, like it hangs for about two seconds or so. And I had a question BTW, does it put too much pressure on the G sensors? Is that harmful?

Samulel J. Sungthir

Still spamming me with ads. :-( Is there some secret trick to remove the ads as promised? This looks like a really cool idea, but ad spamming me, and sucking up my expensive bandwidth are my pet peeves.

Mohamed Quniby

Good but .. Its rly good app but would be better if u add some options like when u shake device go to home and some thing like that not just downloaded app gj keep it up

Mike Wilson

Really? I tried the app today, set the sensitivity all the way up and down, never worked tried different apps. bummer!

Anubhav Srivastava

Doesn't work on my samsung galaxy ace Hey i got a problem i need this app on my phone but its not working what should i do . Hey what's the problem is it a loss of some sensors . Change settings to everything that it should be like the high sensitivity and it should even work when screen is off .

Adrian Santesteban

Triggers accidentally Would be great if it worked as it should. I've already tried adjusting sensitivity to no avail.

Matthew Sutton

Lock screen delay. The app does work but there is a delay in showing the lock screen. When I shake my device it goes to my home screen then 3-4 seconds later the lock screen shows! How can I avoid this without deactivating the lock screen. It would be ok if there was no delay and the lock screen was shown after shaking. With the delay it takes the same amount of time to get to my home screen witch make this app kind of redundant.

Sarath Sathyaseelan

Life saver!! I've been searching for a screen unlock app like this ever since I bought my mobile n I'm really glad u guys hv created this app!! It does the job perfectly widout any flaw! Exactly wt I and a million others like me were looking for! Now I never hv to touch my power button :-D thank u soo much developers :-) keep up the good work! This app doesn't deserve anything less than 5 stars * * * * * :-D adding one more point! This is a lot better than the other shake- screen off app by android dev team...

Joshua Hilton

Very helpful app There are a wide range of customisations, the sensitivity adjust is great and the range of different 'shakes' is also surprising. Sometimes when I drop my phone the status bar drops down because I have it set to drop it on simple shake, and as such it could use a sliding section of shake, i.e. the ability to define an upper limit to shake sensitivity. Otherwise, really great app, highly recommend.

Kamei Senja Diktazi

HTC ONE I think that this app was the worst app in the playstore. '' Why? ''. Because this is such a rubbish. Don't waste your time by download/install this PIECE OF CRAP.

Fakhrul Aiman

I will rate 5 star if you can fix the service can only happen to me once,i can shake once after i exit the'll make more work to do....thank for the app.please fix it.

Ascar Omarov

It is good. One request I read in the FAQ that icons for foreground services may not be hidden. Can you at least remove the entry from the notification area?

stevan perry

Thank you! I don't rate apps. After dropping my phone for the 100th time I lost my power button. This app is just what I needed. Sensitivity at 12 and my sleep setting at 30 secs. I'm set! Plus I can shake it the other way to turn on flashlight. Super awesomeness!! Way to go dev!! Oh ya, no pop up screen begging me to rate the app! Actually took me a second to find out how lol

Bharat Singh

Useful A app which I use frequently starts with a shake. No need to press unlock button, slide to unlock and click app to open. Just Shake!

Абдулла Абдуллаев

HTC Desire X I use the app for turning display and flashlight on and for dialing numbers. The app works even the screen is locked, but this app doesn't take much energy. Great.

Sreenivasula Reddy Chinthakunta

Not working I turned service status to on but still not working. Please help. Will give good rating if it works

Jaret Winterberry

Help Good app. Does what it says. But is there anyway to keep the app working even after closing running apps and clearing ram without reopening the app and rechecking *service state* again?

Melove Lynn

Very nice but sometimes wont start I use this when im in a hurry to start my camera app or the voice search app. I have had a few problems with apps not starting unless i shake the phone overly hard, and then Ive come vwry close to dropping it. Other than that its great to start an app without having to look for it.

Shrikanth Srinivas

Great! However, when I do a horizontal shake it sometimes senses it as a vertical one. I toggled with the settings but I couldn't fix it.

david hedayati

Battery consumption It sucks bc I like this app but it drains a lot of battery on my gs3. And this is with the battery saving mode on. The process shouldn't be running while my screen off, right?

Ahmed Abd elghany

Rare I really rare to review an app but all what i can say for this app., perfect work .keep going on and up .

Rohan Mehta

Good app How do I unlock/lock my phone using the shake feature Not in the options ..

Erik Tedja

Skip Lockscreen i agree with Ëh San, would be nice if we have 2 separate option to : 1. simply Turn ON Screen 2.Unlock screen

my Tong

Good, worked. But app continue to regenerate & run even I stopped it. Always occupy 3Mb in background. Now no use, uninstall, may install again in future.

A Google User

Ok, but The app works well, but the home screen appears after shaking, then the passcode entry screen. It takes a few seconds for the unlock sequence. Using Xperia Z1. I'm uninstalling for now.


Turn screen on doesn't work On note2 turn on screen doesnt work even if I checked 'active when screen off' . I installed this only escape to using buttons. But it doesnt work. It would be good if added turn screen off.

Norms OnASUS

Works well, but eats battery. Is there a way to stop the app and have an Alarm clock start it with Service state on before the next time I want to use it (normally first thing in the morning). Thanks.

Muhammad Isha

Automatic turn off! GT I8550 I have the option enabled where the app is supposed to be on after start up. But it is automatically turning off even when I didn't switch off or reboot the phone! Plz fix.

deeptej foto

This will hopefully save my power button from getting used again and again

Malakai Thomas

Is there a way for their to be screenshots also, its a great app but the only reason I really got it was for sceenshot because my home? button is broken

Medyaremania Riddle Al Ghiffary

SUPERBBB..!! Really works and simple UI for use. I will rate 5 stars if ad-free. LoL..! Thanks,

Xingbin Chen

It is very good tool for me. Could you add a option for turning screen on without unlock? Thanks.

Anirudh Jaswal

Quite a handy app.. Must for all. Using this on my nexus 6. It runs like a charm. One star less coz we get only 3 gestures to play with i.e. hori shake, vertical and forward. Cant u guys make it like horizontal left and right vertical down and up and forward and back separate, it will really give 3 extra gestures to play around.

Rickster Luna

Wow this is great! Needs some tweaking but it's spot on! The motoX for other phones! Hehe

Vicky Chijwani

Doesn't work with Google Play Music Please fix this! The only reason I installed this app in the first place was to control Google Play Music.

Ahmad Kamil

Asus zenfone 5 + lenovo s880 It doesnt work on my asus zenfone 5, but it works on my lenovo s880. Please fix it. Ty.

Akoda Ali Bey

almost perfect is perfect the only problem with this app is if you set the app to turn on your screen when you shake it. I wish it went back to home your screen when you shake it and turn it on

Robinson Hooi Wai Kit

Tried a few apps and this is the best, unfortunately the icon on status bar can't be removed.

Anton Stolov

Incredible app, very useful and very simple. Thanks u.

Sergey Chapenko

Need action "shake to answer call". Thank you.

Gunar Alibeyli

Super Super. Thanks!!!

Arshanskiy Sergey

The Best but it could be better...)) ...if it start shooting just after shaking. But now it just start camera app and i must find a shoot button and check a mode (shot or video)

Иван Иванов

Thanx! Great ability of turning on flashlight by shaking the phone, without turning on screen. Thanx, worth installing!

Zach Morey

Power button replacement Its nice that I no longer have to pull my battery but you should include a screenshot option.

Marius Peter

Note 4 lollipop 5.0.1 user Does not work on note 4 ! It would've been a great deal to me for the led flash to turn it on /off with a simple shake when the screen is off. But unfortunately it doesn't work ! I would pay for it no matter what if you can fix it ! Hope you do !

A Google User

Ok, but The app works well, but the home screen appears after shaking, then the passcode entry screen. It takes a few seconds for the unlock sequence. Using Xperia Z1. I'm uninstalling for now.

Chris Serrao

Lag in execution After you shake to unlock found that you can see the app before the lock screen appears. Also cannot answer calls for like 3-5 sec's after installing the app

Tsai Jason

Great app, very handy 1 little problem, some time it kill by the system, if you can fix this problem would be great

Ganesh Subramanian

Works and seems to be reliable Been playing with this for quite sometime now and surprisingly it delivers what it promises which I didn't see in other Shake apps. The music players in my device didn't respond to the headphones buttons and I badly needed some way to switch to the next and previous tracks. This fits my bill perfectly. Only downside is it seems to work only with the stock media player and not Google player that I generally use. But still is switch to the stick mp for this reason. Pl make it work for other players as well.

Good program I like the fact that I am able to shake the phone to activate the camera or Google now. Works great. Took a while to get the sensitivity just right though. Sometimes it does go off when I don't want it to though. That is the only issue that I don't like however. The only reason I didn't give it a five.

Enamuelpogi Basanes

The app is good. Let me ask something My power button does not work tried to install this app and hell! It works awesome now i can light up my screen. Here's my another Q. How to do a shake to screen shot effect

Tracy-Lee BDH

Tracylee I have a samsung galaxy tab. My power button stopped working and i have downloaded many apps, none of which worked for me. SHAKE was the only app that has enabled me to be able to use my tab again! I have been using it for a couple of days now with no problems at all. Thanx so much for this app without it my tab would still be lying in the draw!

Luke Baranouskas

Indespensible for quick app access I absolutely love using this app for on-the-run access to my camera & Google voice search and it had been highly effective. The shake sensitivity level function has helped me use this well at work where my phone gets a lot of different types of shaking.

Tylrr Dean

Very Good Exactly what I was looking for. 3 directions of shaking and 3 actions. The front back shake seems more sensitive than the up down our side top side. Still, I would pay for this if it wasn't free.

Edward Cheong

Awesome! I love it This app save the life of your button if you're one of those who used to on - off - on your phone rapidly. Now you can set to on the screen by shaking it. 2 Thumbs up!

Chaz Miller

Unstable like all of the rest. It does appear to work sometimes, but like all other shake unlock apps, sometimes not. After trying a dozen of these, I've come to the conclusion none are 100% effective. This particular one is the least mediocre of them all, hence the 3-stars.

Mary Keith

Needs updated Things are starting to get weird. First off, the notification icon disappeared. I couldn't figure out how to get it to come back, so I uninstalled and reinstalled. It came back but only for a very short time. When I went to set up what I want shake to control, the control actions were all mixed up. One action was doing what another action was set to do. This app is still functional if you work around these newly hatched bugs, but it wasn't like this a few days ago.

Dax Wijnveldt

Nice! I use it to play/pause music while it is in my inside pocket of my jacket. But the shake thing is not that handy that way. I already use the forward shake, but it reacts to slow movements when on high sensitivity and not at all at lower sensitivity. Is it possible to add a 'tap' function? So you can enable things with a short hit or tap to the phone? This would be ideal!

MA Milián

App Grade: D- This app lacks the permissions to wake the phone up from a locked state. Therefore, this app is nearly useless.

Renan Pineros

It works acceptably from time to time Not always works. It is a work in progress // I'm sorry.. my bad... I had another app in conflict so I uninstalled it and the Shake app worked great

Jennifer Franco

Great app. But the icon in the notification bar is ugly. Is there a way to remove the icon in the notification bar? It's really annoying.

Somanath Moharana

GOOD... Good response at shake. All is well... But it wake up screen and play music at a little shake while walking or by accidentally. Should be a option to skip to next track only when music is playing.

Graham Strother

Neat idea Poor execution when the wakelock process for Shake is using *20%* of device battery on any given day. Thought I needed to buy a new battery!

Nacho Mayorga

Great app! Works perfectly! The only drawbacks are battery consumption and the range of available actions, but they're not that big an issue.

Claus Beeck

Note2 Great app. I tried several shake apps. No big difference. They work pretty much the same way. But this is stable and I really like the original icons displayed in the settings page.

cyrus bhandari

Stops sometimes Great app really helpful but it stops working sometimes.... Maybe it's my sensors or whatever ,please fix this in the next update ASAP.

Ryan D'souza

Good app The service stops after a while when the screen is off my handset is gt-s5830i,galaxy ace Android 2.3.6

Esmaeel Gholami

Issue with camera Works great; but the device failes to start and initialize the camera. Unlocking the screen brings phone to app control center. Won't use it any more!

Shashank Gowda

Awesome My main power button was not working...!! I just searched for this kind of app and I got it. Now I don't need to use the power button to turn on the screen, I just need to shhhhhhaaaakkkkeeee :*


Get benefit with lovly app. I used it first time and good experiance with the amzing features . you can call any number in urgent if your are in problem jst shake it..

Robert Diamond

Does what is says Only just installed this app, but has 3 shake modes. I have a waterproof case, without access to the power or volume buttons. This app works great with it! A lot better then other, similar apps, with too many ads.

Алексей Михальченко

Absolutely awesome! What the other similar apps surely don't have is such a high sensitivity settings. I love that any tiny movement turns the screen on. Great job!
