Description:
Lets you disable the screen while playing pokemon go without triggering sleep mode or locking.

Required:
proximity sensor hardware, screen standby ROOT (flow can take you to the play store).

Usage:
while Pokémon go is in foreground, activate the proximity sensor to disable screen. Trigger again to turn it back on.

Advised setting:
* disable touch screen if you want to pocket the device (locking the phone is set up as emergency override to end standby)
* If screen pulses, you need to disable hardware overlay in dev settings
Disclaimer: screen standby is 3rd party and may not work with your device.

Attention:
while the screen is off, go will still have the gpu draw the map view. Use battery saver to rest the GPU and save more power
