SMS Screen is a utility for the Android platform that allows you to have your screen turn on when you get a text message. This is another utility that adds a function to what the Android platform already does, allowing you to customize your phone to your liking.
Normally, when you receive a text message, your phone simply blinks and notifies you through vibrating, a notification sound, both, or nothing. Unfortunately, the screen doesn't do anything to let you know that you've received a message. While that might seem unimportant, you may find it catches your attention enough to be worth having.
SMS Screen allows you to set the amount of time that your phones screen stays lit to tell you that you've received a text message. The default for the app is 9 seconds, but you can mess around with it for however long you like. This is another great utility for people to use on their Android phone, so definitely check it out.
