This app works with the proximity sensor on your device and sensors are very different on the different devices. If you need help using the app or have any issues at all - please email me instead of posting a bad rating. Chances are your issue is not caused by the app itself but I could be able to help you anyway. You can see that thousands of people are happily using the app. Give it the benefit of the doubt and contact me by email or G+ if you need help. Please understand that I CAN NOT help you if you just post a comment in the store! Thank you!

"Proximity Actions" is a small, innovative and very useful utility, allowing you to perform various actions using the proximity sensor of your device.

Users of Advanced Screen Control would recognize some of the functionality and would appreciate the cleaner UI and the additional features. This is a continuation of my efforts related to the proximity sensor utilization.

Used terms:
"Wave" means to wave (or slide) your hand (or finger) closely in front of the proximity sensor of your device, in accordance with the chosen settings.
"Hold" means to block the proximity sensor and quickly release it after feeling the vibration.

IMPORTANT: Using this app requires some level of technical awareness and understanding of what the proximity sensor is, where it is and how it works! Make sure you carefully read the this app description and each of the in-app options' description before use!

Key features:
✔ Music: Play/Pause (Android 3.0 and up), Play Next, Play Previous;
✔ Lock the device;
✔ Wake up and optionally unlock the device;
✔ Toggle Auto-Rotation On/Off;
✔ Change the screen orientation, without releasing the orientation lock (Android 3.0 and up);
✔ Launch any app;
✔ Launch any shortcut (direct dial, direct message, etc.);
✔ Toggle the LED light On/Off (if available).
✔ Home screen shortcuts for starting or stopping service (can be used with Tasker)

DISCLAIMER: Some devices seem to have slower proximity sensors so you would have to adjust the settings and wave slower, but the app works on every device with functioning proximity sensor!

The app hardly use any battery power. You shouldn't even see it in the statistics.

AD SYSTEM: The app is ad-supported. You have full control on when and if to view the ads, but please do so if you want to support the development. Read more on the ad system here - .

Development support:
This app is developed solely by me, initially for personal use, as I couldn't find such anywhere. If you like my work and want to support my efforts - please give a 5 star rating and share it with your friends!

PLEASE READ: The status bar notification is put there because Google made it so! Otherwise the app service might be killed by the system and the app would stop working!

TO UNINSTALL: Use the "Uninstall" option in the app!
