This thread should be used for support and feature requests:

If you become locked out, shut your device down, turn it back on and the first unlock should be your default PIN


TimePIN is a security and ease of use enhancing application. TimePIN sets your lockscreen PIN code to the current time resulting in an ever changing PIN that can not be shoulder surfed or repeated due to fingerprints on the screen. Modifiers allow you to morph the PIN, to further enhance security.
12hour and 24hour clocks are both supported.
(If no modifier is applied, and the time is 9:12, your PIN will be 0912)
Reverse - reverses the PIN. If the time is 11:24, your PIN will be 4211
Mirror - mirrors the PIN. If the time is 8:34, your PIN will be 08344380
Double - Doubles the PIN. If the time is 12:34, your PIN will be 12341234
Offset - Applies a user chosen offset to the PIN. If the time is 10:43, and your offset is -121, your PIN will be 0922.
The reverse modifier is free, and no purchase is needed to use the application. The additional modifiers are available for purchase for $1.99, for all, for life.
For all non lockscreen purposes, and the first unlock after turning a device on, a user selected default PIN is used.
TimePIN is NOT currently compatible with encrypted devices, but an update is coming!
Future features:
Additional modifiers
Support for encrypted devices*
Support for alphanumerical passwords
Support for pattern password*
*Starred future features may require root access

Each time I try to unlock the phone after waking it up it says wrong pin even if it is the time. I just enter it again and it works its just annoying to have to do it twice.

@eisenbathb I am getting that too. When you first go to enter your pin, default pin works and time does not. Anytime after that, time works, and the default doesn't. The app is only working after the first attempt

2x PIN
I like the cconcept of this app. Pretty cool idea. I just updated to 1.08 and I still have the issue of having to enter the code twice. I'm running the 1/20/14 nightly of AOKP on a Galaxy S3.

Ok so original problem fixed! But now after about 5-10 unlocks it stops working completely. The default and the time. I have had to restart phone like 3 times now. Thanks

Ok, ok. Try this: reboot the device. For me, after that all works flawless.
