Your phone must have a proximity sensor for this to work! ALL PROXIMITY SENSORS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!!! Users with a dual purpose ambient light sensor for proximity usage may have unintended bugs!

Prox is a gesture based service that allows you to control certain aspects of your phone without even touching it. You can launch applications, expand and contract your status bar, and even silence your phone. All of this is done by simply waving your hand close to the phone. Imagine the possibilities and the look of amazement on friends faces when you turn your screen off without ever touching a button or the screen :)
Prox also allows you to have several load outs. You can switch your load outs and do completely different actions.
Prox uses the proximity sensor and accelerometer on your phone to do certain actions. Current actions include:
*Expand and contract status bar
*Emulate home button
*Turn off screen
*Toggle ringer mode
*Show some text (Toast)
*Launch an application
*Play a tone
Plus more actions to come!
Prox doesn't do anything during a phone call so you don't have to worry about face gesturing. Your proximity sensor will behave normally during a call.

In order to enable turning off the screen, Prox needs administrative permission. You can still use Prox without this feature if it makes you uncomfortable to grant these permissions. To enable, go to settings and click enable admin. NOTE: IN ORDER TO UNINSTALL, ADMIN PERMISSION MUST BE DISABLED BEFORE DOING SO, OR PROX WILL NOT UNINSTALL!!!
PLEASE EXCLUDE FROM TASK KILLERS OR PROX WILL FREAK OUT!!
Note: If you are running any custom ROM, this may not work correctly. Please verify that your proximity sensor is functional before downloading this...
