CaseSensor offers Smart Cover functionality for Android Tablets. It makes waking up and closing the screen easy by just closing and opening your tablet’s case. CaseSensor can automatically dim your screen when you close your tablet’s case and turn the screen back on when you open it. This is accomplished by monitoring the light sensor levels of the tablet. When the light sensor is covered by the tablet’s case, the device goes to sleep and when the case uncovers the tablet the device wakes up*. Moreover, CaseSensor gives you the option to remove the tablet’s lock screen features that is enabled by default so you don’t need to unlock your tablet each time you want to use it, just let CaseSensor do it! Simply start CaseSensor, follow the on-screen instructions on the calibration wizard and you are good to go. If you are looking for a more tailored experience just head to the settings page and customize it to you heart’s content. If you are living a busy life, CaseSensor comes with a handy widget that allows you to easily control it right from your home screen or the android notifications area.
CaseSensor has been tested on Motorola XOOM, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Acer Iconia Tab
