There are more than 250 App Locks in the Google Play marketplace. How is this one different, all the features seem to be the same in each of the app.
We developed an app that would solve one of the biggest issues with app lockers. When I use app lock on my phone, it does not mean that I can keep the home scree of the phone unlocked. Therefore, when I want to you use a protected app (protected by any app locker from the market), I would first need to unlock the home screen and then unlock the app. This two step process becomes too tedious when a user has to use any app frequently. For example, in case you are chatting with a person, the replies do not come soon enough that you are chatting on run time basis, so the app and the screen get locked. You would need to open both of them in order to reply to the chat message.... More Info »
We came up with a solution that is combination of an app lock as well as a home screen lock. The user can select all the apps that he wants to keep locked and private. The user then creates a master password/ PIN/ Pattern and a Guest Password/PIN/Pattern. When the home screen is unlocked using the master password, all the protected apps get automatically unlocked along with the home screen. So when you are using your own phone, you do not have to input two passwords.
In case someone borrows your phone, or want to just have a look at it or make a small call; give them your Guest Password/ PIN/ Pattern. The home screen will open with this Guest Password, but all your protected apps continue to be locked.
We believe that such a combination is not available on any of the apps that are marketed. Therefore, we went ahead and filed a patent on it as well.
