Picking up your phone and turning the screen on can be a real pain in the #firstworldproblems. Who has the time for that? If you pick up your phone and hold it at a certain angle it should just know that you want the screen unlocked. Right? That is exactly what a new app called “WakeUp” does, and it doesn’t require root access.
If you’re not concerned about keeping strangers out of your phone, this is a simple way to automate unlocking your device. Simply install “WakeUp” from the Play Store, activate device administrator in the app, and then tap “Activate” and “Automatically Monitoring.” When you pick up your phone and hold it at a certain angle it will be unlocked. The sensitivity of the angle can be adjusted in the settings. The app will also automatically lock your phone when you set it down.
Apps like these are what make Android so awesome. If this sounds like something you need you can download it below for free.
