Question or Wanted: a true 'disable screenlock' tool

1 post in this topic


When out of the house, a pin code or pattern lock is of course very very useful.

But when I'm home, I get tired of entering the unlock code 30 times a night.

Removing the lock every night and later putting it back on is too cumbersome.

Now there are apps like these:



And they both work fine, until... I select something from the Notification pulldown, which then causes the Pin or Pattern screen to appear!

It would seem like the Notification Bar has it's own "view" of whether the phone is locked or not, and bypassing the lock using the apps above is apparantly out of its sight.

In other words, the Notification Bar seems to think the phone is still in lock mode, and orders me to unlock it before it can proceed.

It also appears that this isn't even general Android behaviour:

- on my Nexus 7 (2013) it behaves exactly as described.

- on my Samsung Galaxy S3 the above "disable lock"-apps do nothing if there is a Pin or Pattern active.

Now my question: is there a "disable screenlock" app that ALSO manages to do it's magic for the Notification Bar? Even if only for the Nexus 7 :-)

Or is it something that one of you great developers out there could try to fabricate?

Ideally it should have simple toggle behaviour, like the apps that I linked to, only a bit better or smarter.

Thanks! Peter
