Hello all, first post from a new member with a new Droid X..
I was searching for information on how to disable the automatic screen lock when running on battery (screen powers off, have to hit the home button and do a left-swipe to re-access the phone), and I found a program, err an app, called "No Lock" which purports to do the trick.
I haven't tried it yet, but whether or not it works is not the subject of my post.
Rather, why do I have to download and install an "app" to do something as simple as editing a Windows display setting on my PC, or making a registry entry change?
There are all these "apps" which do things the user should be able to do him/herself without the assistance of a computer programmer.
I don't completely understand why things need to be so complicated. Is that just the way it is with smartphones?
My theory is this: the more things are locked down, the lesser chance a user will honk up the phone - which keeps customer satisfaction high and customer service costs down. Am I right?
I can imaging the debacle if phones were like Windows PCs. I understand, but still find it incredibly annoying.
