We all know the feeling of reading a news article or rather long document, when our screen suddenly turns off after a minute or two. This can be extremely annoying when you’ve found yourself a perfectly comfortable position while lying in bed. You’re then forced to stretch out that finger to reach the power button and unlock your device. Of course, you can change the sleep settings to a longer period of time, but this is hardly an effective solution.

In situations like these, a suitable remedy may be KeepItOn by XDA Senior Member Fredericosilva. Designed especially for these scenarios, it aims to prevent screens from turning off by detecting any small movements and consequently increasing the time the screen stays on for a little longer. Furthermore, if the screen does turn off, you can also conveniently turn it back on by shaking your device for a short time period set by yourself. And by “shaking”, you simply have to move the device a little.

KeepItOn definitely has its uses, especially for those who enjoy watching lengthy videos or reading ebooks or other documents on their Android device. If you would like to check this out, head over to the KeepItOn application thread for more information.
