[REQUEST] Check proximity sensor

[REQUEST] Check proximity sensor

Postby peterpan » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:50 pm

Hey, I got a little feature request that might improve touch control a lot.

Problem: Phone gets unlocked sometimes when in pocket.

Solution: Check the phones proximity sensor! If a object is detected, the phone is propably in your pocket and you don't want it to get unlocked. If nothing is nearby and a specified gesture ist detected, unlock that phone!

Please make this at least an option in the app. I love double tap to wake, but this is really bugging me. Paid twice for your app (PGM & TC). :)

I'm going to try adding this when I finish TC2

Thanks, I'm really looking forward to this feature.

What do you mean with TC2? Are you developing a new app? Do we need to pay again for the same features?

No it's going to be a new version of the same app. No need to purchase again. I'm rewriting it completely and adding much much more features. It's actually almost ready. I need just a couple of days to finish it but I don't have my PC yet.

Can I ask for an ETA on TC2? Really looking forward to this and a few days seem to be over by now. ;)

Never ever ask for ETA. Also it's actually almost done. It's working on N4 I'm gathering translations and fixing small bugs on the go.

Thanks for your reply, sorry for asking. It's just impossible to use double tap to wake for me now. The phone gets unlocked in my pocket every time. I hope you implemented the proximity sensor check in TC2.

Do you have any plans on using the play store beta channel for future releases your app?

I didn't implement proximity sensor yet but there is a different option that might prevent it from happening. Also I am using beta for new releases. Check Paranoid.me community on google+
