    New Storm/Iphone-esque Lock/Unlock app

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, theres a new free app that locks and unlocks the storm like the Iphone... neat, but it doesnt activate with the lock button at the top(must open the app - could reconfigure a side key to activate it)... also, back to .75, clicking the screen will light it back up while "locked" oh and it basically doesnt lock the phone(can still make calls, switch apps etc while it is open... but if youre that into having the iphone slide option(works unlike stormlock - must slide the actual button)
    anyway, what do you guys think? Here it is: OTA d/l

    hmmm. I am quite fond of my convenience key set up as it right now. Don't think that I would like to change that up. Sure would be cool to be able to use the lock key. i am guessing tho you could put the icon for the app on the homescreen and have it work too?

    WILL DL and check it out.
    i will report back

    Personally I wasn't a fan of this app, as I was able to unlock by pressing in the right side of the slider bar w/out sliding my finger.

    Oh, and it made my BlackBerry look like an iPhone

    So after a couple days of trying out the slide lock, here's what I found.

    The application does what it is supposed to. Clears the screen and puts a wallpaper up eliminating the possibility of selecting any programs or folders on the main screen. But that is it. All other buttons still operate as usual (send, end, menu, and convienece keys)

    A couple things that would be nice to improve this app.
    a) select your own wallpaper from your pictures.
    b) clock that does not count to 100 (12:75, instead 1:15)
    c) lock out all phone functions all buttons.

    Thanks.
    regards

    even though I did not create the app, since I posted it - I will respond. Apparently he says theres no way to prevent the use of the call and end keys, he is going to allow for the changing of wallpapers, and I think has already fixed the timer problem
