    The developer is very responsive and updates it all the time. Let him know what issues you are having and Im sure he will make the changes.

    I don't use the patern lock. Did you disable your old slide lock? Also make sure you go to options and have it override the old droid lock.

    I saw this thread and was hopeful that what the tool did was have a better phone lock (a numeric pin entry) than the security swipe that it comes with (iPhone like or not). Not to derail the thread, but if anyone has seen a solution with a numeric entry, please let me know. . . I haven't found any on the market that works (at all, let alone well).

    This one does have a nice, simple but complete user interface and I always like to hear that the developer is responsive and focused on developing tweaks and new features.

    This is why these apps are nothing but useless.

    This app is more for on call issues and not made to lock someone off the phone. It locks the screen and you will not hit mute or dial buttons with your cheeks.

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks everyone, we are ecstatic that our app is appreciated by the community :icon_ banana:

    As I shared with Eddie earlier, our original design included a password lock screen. But as we got to implementing we found out that the Android engineers made it impossible for 3rd party apps to have a truly secure lock, so we opted to not implement this as it would be misleading to users. Instead, we provided the "quick" shortcut to enabling the stock pattern unlock.

    Hey Shadez, double unlocks are typically a result of some interaction by another app. If you have a task killer or anti-virus app, add the Screen Suite to the ignore list and it should take care of the double unlocks.
    There may be few cases where the Android will not honor our request to replace its lock screen, but we have mechanisms in our code to self-correct against this.

    Its the only app out that keeps you from pressing buttons while on your phone.

    What is not great about it?
