Yanc received a useful update this week.
Now, instead of dimming, YANC Pro will switch off your phone and, with a wave of your hand, turn it back on again to see the time. After a few seconds it will turn off again.
This is a huge battery saver which means you can leave YANC Pro running in the background, even when you have no external power connected.
Furthermore, it resolves the odd complaint that it’s too bright and the other favourite the buttons don’t dim. Sorted.
This new feature requires a device with a proximity sensor to work. Some devices, such as the Nexus 7, do not have proximity sensors.
You can find YANC Pro on the Google Play site.
