Save Time While Staying Secure with Delayed Lock

"Adding a PIN, password, or pattern to your phone's lock screen can be great for security, but really annoying if you unlock your phone frequently. Delayed Lock turns off your pattern for a few minutes, so you don't have to swipe it every time you check your phone."

This app could be a great little time saver. If you use a secure lock screen and find it annoying when you need to unlock often you should really check out Delayed Lock by J4velin. It is very configurable and will let you set an amount of time that it will wait after the screen is locked before requiring your password or pattern to be entered. It has other options too, even letting you delay the password/pattern based on your location. Their is a free trial available but the full version is only $1.45. If you have an HTC device with Sense you already have some of its features. It apparently has a check box for you if you have Sense so it can extend your built in features. If this app helps you please let us know!

No Lock For Android Does Just That

"My Android device has a tiny power button, and it's usually in a holster. Really, what are the odds of me turning it on accidentally?"

Here is a little something that quite a few Android users might find useful. Usually I want my device to lock when I turn the screen off but there are times when having to unlock the device every time I turn the screen on is a real pain. Ever try to take notes during a meeting? For me the slide lock isn't too big of a deal but there are times when it might be nice to not have to deal with it. For those times there is No Lock. That is all No Lock does. It is a simple one button program that enables or disables the auto lock feature on your device. It even has a widget you can place on any home screen to quickly toggle the auto lock state. Does this program make a blip on anyone's "that's just what I needed" radar?
