  4. Hi Prahallad,

    A good app, though as I'm using CM11, it doesn't add that much to my phone, as there is already a "Go To Sleep" function in the Apps Drawer. However, I'm sure it's very useful to many OEM Android users, and I'd like to make a couple of suggestions that would improve it even for me.

    One thing I have never understood is why Android has so long used the Horrible, Old, Retro, CRT turning off animation (since Gingerbread, I think.) I hated that when it came out, and I still do. Why do we need to use something so OLD and crummy, on a modern, state-of-the-art piece of technology?

    I don't really love any of the sample animations provided with your app, except Fade Out, which CM11 also provides (and is part of Froyo). Most of them are too complex, or feature a double animation when one is better - like "Zoom out bounce", "Lines Crossed" (misspelled, BTW), "Line Darkness". Could you make some of these simpler by separating them into two simple animations, please?

    For example, convert "Zoom out bounce" to simply "Zoom out", "Lines Crossed" to simply "Horizontal Lines" which are just black lines coming from Left and Right over the existing image, and as they meet, the screen becomes Black, rather than the turning white first, then lines crossing, then fading out? It's all too much as it is, in my view. If the black lines simply come across as they do now but maybe more slowly, it will look like two sets of shutters closing. I prefer simplicity!

    Also, for "Line Darkness", could you make a new animation and call it simply "Nightfall", please? So, from "Line Darkness", remove the Black Lines that go up the screen, and simply have the Black Fade fall from the top of the screen. I think "Nightfall" is the ideal name for this.

    A couple of new suggestions I'd like to offer are:
    1. A new animation called "Black Hole", which simply starts with a Black dot at the centre of the screen, and gets bigger and bigger until it Blacks out the whole screen.

    You could get fancy with that and create various options, so that rather than the black dot just getting bigger, the centre of the screen could be sucked into the hole like water going down a plug hole. It could form a vortex, or it could simply pull the nearest parts in, then, working outwards, the next nearest, and so on.

    2. Another idea could be "SuperNova", where a bright spot expands outwards from the centre "burning" everything on the screen as it goes, and leaving Black once it has passed.

    3. "Curtains" - two black shutters that close from the sides

    4. "Camera Shutter" - curved, pivoting, black shutters that close to a single central point from pivots located on a circle outside of the screen rectangle.

    5. "Free Fall" where you Zoom In to the screen until all that's left to see is a single "pixel" which fills the whole screen with whatever colour it is, then fades to black.

    6. "Detonate" where the screen image explodes outwards in many pieces.

    7. "Shattered" where the screen image shatters and falls down

    8. "Dematerialise" where (pseudo-)random pixels turn black until the whole screen is black. This could also be done by numerous non-random algorithms, such as spirals - either inward or outward, or scanning, back and forth down the screen like an eraser, etc.

    9. "Decolourise" where the screen slowly turns to Black and White, then Black.

    Hope these ideas provide food for thought.

    1. Hello AI Can,

      Thanks, for such a good explanation and suggestions. I will sourly try to implement those thoughts. Not all are possible, but will try to do it.

      Happy appling,

  5. Is it possible to lock screen with power button instead of widget

    1. No it's not possible at moment. If some day I find a way to do it without rooting I will do that for scour.

  6. I have a Google pixel, if you lock it from the widget, it disables the thumbprint reader, is there a way around this?

  7. How can i unstill this app from my device pls help me..
