Proximity sensor smartphone is able to detect the presence of objects in close proximity to the display without any physical contact. Thus, iOS can lock the touch screen of the iPhone to prevent accidental taps during a call when the phone is close to your ear, and also to save battery power.
Developer Stilldabomb wondered – is it possible to use the proximity sensor for other purposes. So a tweak ProximityActivator. It gives the user control of the proximity sensor of the iPhone. It can be used to enable and disable operating system features a simple wave of the hand over a smartphone.
In what situations is useful ProximityActivator? For example, during an active SMS correspondence or communication in Vkontakte. You do not need every time to unlock the device to read or reply to a message – you just get the smartphone out of your pocket and the screen of the iPhone can automatically turn on. Just as it goes off when you put the phone in your pocket. Or, for example, you can assign ProximityActivator call multitasking panel and open it holding his hand over the iPhone.
ProximityActivator works in conjunction with Activator tweak Ryan Petrich. It’s free and available in the default BigBoss repository.
