App Lock – Keep unwanted snoopers out!

Do you often worry about people getting a little to curious when you, being the kind soul you are, let them use your phone? I’m sure there’s not one of us out there that doesn’t have at least one text message, photo or video we’ve taken of ourselves or something else that we just may not want the world to see. (I don’t of course!)

Well the developer of App Lock – caotiantupi – has designed an application that’ll give us all a little peace of mind. With this app you can add your private applications that you wish for no one to infiltrate, to a locked app list. This can be used with any application you own. Here are a few features:

  • Three unlocking method to select: numeric password, draw pattern and cool gesture pattern.
  • Cool background picture for gesture pattern.
  • One click to add unlocked app to locked apps list.
  • One click to return locked app to unlocked app list.
  • When visitor mode, enter password to open locked apps.
  • When master mode, no need to enter password to open locked apps.

Head on over to the XDA thread and get all the info and links to download the app.

About the Author: Adam Johnson

Adam was born and raised in Florida. Once a grown man traveled around the country working as a contract 3D mechanical designer. Finally settled in Gainesville, FL doing the same work in a permanent position for a global medical device company. His interest in mobile devices started with his Motorola Q9h which sported Windows Mobile 6.1. Unfortunately he was captured by the enemy and owned an iPhone3G for a short while, but that didn't last long through some dealings with the mobile carrier at the time. Finally he found a happy secure place among the Android community, starting with his HTC EVO 4G and hasn't looked back. All during his time with these various smartphones, he's dug deep into them, hacking away to get the best performance he could, all the while making his devices unique. As new Android devices are always on the horizon, he can't say what his next device will be, but he is Android for life, and his passion for all things Google will stand fast.
