Smart Lock Released in the Android Market

I recently launched Smart Lock in the Android Market.

Smart Lock allows you to do the following:

  • Child Lock any App
  • Increases general security
  • Makes the lock screen less annoying
  • Boots the camera faster on older phones

Smart Lock runs in the background and lets you use one application* without seeing the lock screen.

Smart Lock has two modes: Everyday Mode and Child Lock Mode. The main feature is the Child Lock Mode. Child Lock Mode allows you to give your phone to your child and not worry about them deleting info on your phone, changing your settings or viewing inappropriate material. You can limit there access to only one application*.

Everyday Mode is for personal use. Everyday Mode is great for anyone that likes to keep their phone secure, but finds it annoying to enter the unlock pattern every time they turn the screen on. I use it at the gym when  listening to music. It allows me change songs easily without compromising security.
Smart Lock also dramatically speeds up camera boot time on older Android phones. Because it bypasses the lock screen you don't have to wait for the screen to orient into landscape mode before taking pictures. The camera goes from screen off to taking pictures almost instantly.

I am currently offering a Early Adopter sale for Smart Lock for only 99 cents.  The price will go up soon so get it while I am offering such a great deal.  It's listed as "Smart Lock with Child Lock" in the Android Market. You can scan the barcode above or just search the Market for "Smart Lock".

* -  Smart Lock blocks the user from viewing the home screen when an App is Smart Locked. If an app links to another app, that link will still work.
