Lock Screen App

Available in :
'Lock Screen App' can lock your device easily.

## ↓↓Scroll down↓↓ for Notes on Uninstall. ##

Do you feel inconvenient to lock your device using the power button?

Are your afraid of wearing out the power button? (My n1 was repaired coz of that :< )

'Lock Screen App' is a tiny app that can help you lock easily (without power button).

Features :
•Lock device with one touch
(Same effect as pressing the power button)
•Not a widget so it does not run as service in the background
•Auto-kill itself after locking to save your Battery & Memory
•Tiny in size (<50k)

Features (Donation Version Only):
•Lock by long-pressing search button   **not work on xpad/apad and device without search key**
•Get updates earlier

★★ Please buy the donation version to support the dev! ★★
(You could find it using 'View more applications'/ the link in the app's settings page)
Thank you! :D


@@Compatibility Issues@@
The developer has tried to test the app on Nexus One and Android Simulators (2.2 & 2.3)
However, the dev cannot guarantee that it could run / uninstall on all devices [coz I don't have all the devices].

FYI, some users reported that the app MAY NOT work on:
APad, Evo, LG Vortex, XPad (but some said ok)

Reported OK: Arc, Atrix, Desire, Desire HD, Droid 2 (rooted 2.2), Galaxy S, Incredible, Ideos, myTouch 4G, Nexus S, Optimus One, Optimus S, Optimus V, Streak, Tab

Please let me know your device name if the latest version could/couldn't work/uninstall on your device.
(I would then update the above list for other users' reference. Thanks.)

### How to uninstall? ###
This app uses device administration function in Android 2.2 or later, so you must deactivate it *BEFORE* uninstall to avoid error during uninstall.

To do this:
•Go to "Lock Screen Settings" (in launcher) -> "Remove Device Administrator"
~See screenshots~
Alternatively, you may do it via
•Go to Settings -> Location & security (or Security) -> Select device administrators -> Uncheck this app.

[To use other hardware keys to unlock your device, try 'Widget Locker' / 'No Lock' app (not developed by me)]

Also download FixBrokenPowerButton. Activate this app first, activate FixBrokenPowerButton second to make them work together.
