I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 with Jelly Bean. I would like, for, my screen to lock if proximity sensor is covered (for instance, when it is in my pocket).

How can I do that?

I am searching for an app as I have not found anything within the standard menu.

  • Does the proximity sensor (assuming NFC) work on pockets? I thought it only worked with other NFC capable objects.

Have a look at Smart Cover, Cover Lock, Simple Cover Lock [Beta] and others on Google Play. You can probably find other apps that maybe are better for you by just looking at the 'similar' apps section on Google Play.

  • Simple Cover Lock [Beta] does the job. And it's free.
