“Stay on” manual

The “Stay on” app is almost out of the testing phase, time to publish the working of the app: enter the manual.

So what is the purpose of the app?
The purpose of the app is to easily extend the screen timeout.

How does it work?
When you install the app you get one icon:

app icon

When you click the icon, it will remember your current screen timeout, and then set the screen time out to 30 minutes.
You will get a short “toast message” that this happend
toast long

And you get a notification to remind you

That was all to extend the screen timeout.
I don’t see a app screen or form?
That’s correct. Because there is no interaction with this app there is no visual screen or form. You only see the “toast messsage” and the notification.
(If you think another way would be better, please leave a comment!)

Typical usage for the app is that you only want to extend it for a limited time of use, so you want to reset the screen timeout to the old value too.
There are 2 ways to do that:
1: click the app icon again or
2: click the notification

In both cases the screen timeout will be set to the old value (which we remembered earlier) and you get a short “toast message” what the new screen timeout is.

toast short

Hope you enjoy the app, and if you have any questions please post a comment.
