ScreenDimmer has been updated with support for the proximity sensor.
If your device has a proximity sensor you can use it to turn the display off/on. This feature will for example turn the display off if you put the device in your pocket or place it on your desk with the display facing down.
PS: Thanks go out to limneos who figured out how to use the proximity sensor from inside SpringBoard.
if you don’t know about ScreenDimmer:
ScreenDimmer can help you to save battery life by automatically dimming your device’s screen after a pre-defined time; or if you wish by turning the backlight off.
Most users suffer unnecessary battery drain while having their iPhone not on standby. Setting auto-lock to a short time makes it better, but is an inconvenience most of the time due to permanent locking and unlocking while waiting for something.
ScreenDimmer is the solution for this problem: Save battery life by reducing the backlight to a minimum if the device hasn’t been used for a pre-defined time and reduce the waste of the most energy consuming component, the backlight, of the iPhone or iPod.
Free yourself from worrying about locking your device
