    Turn of the screen by shutting your case!

    Hello everyone! Id like to present my new app - Killswitch.

    It uses the proximity, acceleration and light sensors to put your device to sleep just by shutting the case.

    Similar to ipad 2 Smartcover... very simple and useful, and not just on tablets!

    Get it here:

    Thanks,
    fulltime

    Love this idea!

    Question, Due the the way they constructed the portfolio case I bought at verizon, will it be dark enough for it to register?

    Yes it works with the portfolio case -- just downloaded and tested this... but it doesn't seem to wake the xoom on case opening, like the ipad works. It turns it off fine, but apparently not "on"??

    though simply disabling the lock and avoiding that step (wake with press of the power button alone) is useful.

    $2.75 does sort of seem like a lot to charge for this though -- just saying... may change my mind after a few days though! Good idea for an app!

    I saw this too, and decide to try it a few days agao. It made me wish the XOOM had a proximity sensor. That would make it much more accurate. Works better on my phone than it does on the tablet IMO.
