Most of us frequently unlock our phones every time we want to see what time it is or we get a new alert (particularly those who don't enable any kind of light or sound signal). To avoid having to press buttons every time we want to check something we can download WaveUp.

Unlock your phone without even touching it

This applications uses the mobile phone's proximity sensor to allow users to unlock their phones without having to touch any buttons. Users will find a complete settings menu for enabling this unlock mode, the one called Wave, as well as the pocket mode, which opens the screen automatically when you take it out of your pocket or purse. You will also be able to turn them off whenever you want in order to avoid any accidental or undesired unlocking.

Meanwhile, this application allows screen shutdown by covering the proximity sensor for a certain length of time, a mode which can be set so that it is always on by default. By the way: this sensor is found at the top of the device, close to the speaker for listening to calls.
