#1. Adguard

Using adblocker might not the best idea because it affects the earning of a developer. So, I suggest you not to use very often but sometimes you need to use that to get rid of irritating ads from browser and apps. for that Adguard is the best solution. This app is not available on playstore because it violates terms and condition of Google. So, you can download it from their website or XDA Store. It's also available for PC. This app is free to use but you can always pay them to get some extra slices of an app.

#3. Proximity Service

Proximity Service uses your device's proximity sensor to control the screen on/off state. Simply covering the sensor will turn the screen off whilst keeping the device awake - perfect for games that need to be running in the foreground but don't need your continuous attention. Flip your phone on a table, place it in your pocket, or use any other means to cover the proximity sensor. As soon as the sensor is uncovered, the screen will come back on.
