# Getting Started
Thanks for installing Caffeine. This page shows you how to use it.
Keeping screen on for long periods may damage your screen.
# How to use
Caffeine provides you with several ways to use it. You can decide how to use it by circumstances.
# Using tile
Caffeine is mainly a tile-based app. You can activate or deactivate it by clicking Caffeine tile. Following steps show you how to add Caffeine tile:

# Resolving compatibility issues

# Support development
I spent lots of time on Caffeine, but I didn't add any ads or in-app purchases to Caffeine and didn't get paid. If you like Caffeine, please consider supporting me.
You can support me by installing my new app Monochrome (opens new window). It's a handy app that allows you to scan and store your frequently used barcodes.
I'm deeply grateful for all supports!
