Screen On/Off Sound mobile app
genre  |  Utilities
os  |  Android
price  |  free
self-rating  |  E - Everyone (what is this?)

This simple app will play a sound of your choosing when the screen is turned on or off. Works great with tablets that have a cover which automatically turns the screen on or off.

I programmed this after receiving a Nexus 7 tablet as a gift, as well as a case with a magnetic flap which automatically turns the screen off (like the iPad).  However, no sound plays when this happened.  I wanted a little assurance that the screen actually did turn off, and "Screen On/Off Sound" was born!
