How to turn on Android Device Screen with a Wave from your hand – Wave2Wake Android App

Most of the Android device start button gets wear down over a time. Main reason is continuous use as every time the screen goes out you have to press the start button to again see the display screen. Most of the touchscreen smartphones comes with a single button which is a turn on/off button. Sometimes this causes malfunctioning of the start button and you need to press the button really hard to get your phone working. I am also facing the same problem and try to get it repaired. But after repairing also, the button lasts for only 2 months which is not acceptable. For some time I am searching for an App to allow me turn on the machine without using the start button. Recently I found a wonderful Android App, after which I can turn on the device by just waving my hand in front of the mobile screen. In this post I am going to review Wave2Wake Android App.

Wave2Wake App – Turn on Android Device Screen with a wave

Wave2Wake is a very simple to use Android App that uses the proximity sensor on the device to detect the hand gesture. The thing that I like most about the App is that it works even with Non Rooted Android Smartphones. Not only a hand wave can turn on the device but if you are using a flip cover then open of flip cover also turn on the device. There are several reasons to use the app and some of them are as follows:

  • Helps in reducing wear and tear of power on off button

  • Get Magical touch free experience
