SmartWake is a gesture-based app that tweaks the behaviour of your smartphone’s screen lock and unlock feature. When the phone is in the trouser pocket, for example, the app prevents accidental screen wake-ups. Similarly, when it’s drawn out of the pocket or lifted off a desk, the screen lights up automatically.

While the app is free to download and use, you can upgrade to the Pro version with a one-time payment of Rs.110, which adds a battery-saver mode by preventing apps from switching on the phone’s display (notifications, for example) when the phone is kept face-down.
