Gravity Screen for Android is a free app for Android devices which automatically turns off your screen when you place your device onto the table or put your device inside your pocket. It works the other way around as well; the display will get activated automatically when you take your phone out of the pocket or pick it from the table.

Starting with Gravity Screen for Android:
Gravity Screen for Android tries to automate the process of turning on or off the screen depending on the inputs from different sensors. It detects or estimates the placement of the device and acts accordingly.

Different sensors in Gravity Screen for Android:
Gravity Screen for Android basically does two things – turns on the display and turns off the display depending upon the input of the sensors. So I will discuss each of these ways of turning off and on the display in this post. You can enable or disable each of these individually.
Pocket Sensor and Table Sensor:
Gravity Screen automatically recognizes if the phone is in your pocket. After the phone goes below a set angle, the device gets ready to be tuned off. This is the first option in the app and you can customize the angle according to your needs. Also it allows turning off the display in any angle.
In table sensor, the app detects if the phone is lying on the table faced down and then it switches it off. Gravity Screen for Android allows you to set the angle threshold as seen here. In this section you also get the ability to switch off the screen when the device is placed on the table while facing upwards.
Here the Gravity Screen for Android monitors the proximity sensor for activity. Turns off and on the display by taking into account the proximity sensor. This gives the app the ability to wake phone with a swipe over the sensor and more. Proximity is used in conjunction with other sensors for best results.
When motion is detected, the screen in turned on, and is kept ON when in motion. When this is enabled all you have to do is pick up a device and it will be turned on automatically and kept on until in placed somewhere. Here you get the option to individually control turn on screen by motion and keep screen on by motion. You can also adjust the sensitivity and timeout.
Other feature, such as behavior during call, vibration, notifications, priority, headphone support, and more can be managed from here.
Gravity Screen for Android is a nice app which automates the task of turning the screen on or off. This is a cleaver app which does things quite nicely but you might have to customize the sensitivity or other settings in such a manner that the app works according to your likes. Automate the process of turning on and off the screen with Gravity Screen.
