Rename “Lock Screen Button” to “Screen Off Utils”


In “Lock Screen Button v 1.2.0”, the application will be renamed from “Lock Screen Button” to “Screen Off Utils” to match the functions/features of the application.

  1. Can remove the device admin permission in the configuration of the application.
  2. Replaced “Lock Screen Button” by “Configure Lock Screen Button” in the drawer of launcher.
  3. Added Configuration: Enable/Disable the force lock, Create Shortcut, Vibration.
  4. Added shortcut entry in the “Select shortcut” of launcher.

Known Issue:
Using “Create Home Screen Shortcut” in the configure will add the shortcut to all launchers. You can ignore it if you are installed one launcher or only using the default launcher. Cannot fix as already using standard android API to add shortcut.
Work around:
Using the Add shortcut of the launcher.

Will provide screenshot on market when i am free.

This is the application and widget which can screen off your phone.

As lock screen permission is needed, it is require to enable the admin permission of the Lock Screen Button after install. (Enable admin permissions in Location & security > Select device admin > Lock Screen Button).

Also before uninstalling this application make sure to disable admin permissions in Location & security > Select device admin > Lock Screen Button.
