Default LG's Knock Code

LG is coming out with a feature that's an evolution to knock on/off. it's called knock code. i like the idea. here's a youtube video they made for it. what do you guys think of the idea and implementation?

guess i have to help you. knock code is supposed to make it so instead of double taping on the center of the screen to turn it on which is how it works now, you can have multiple combinations of knocks to turn on the screen. which is what the hand was trying to show you in the video with all the different combinations. that's where they get "knock code" from. the combinations of knocks is the code.

OHHHHH, i see, all is clear now.
If I can unlock my device faster with knock code than with pattern unlock, and if it's as secure as pattern lock, I say yes please. Give it to me!!

Sometimes, not much, but sometimes my phone doesnt even answer the double knock I give it.
Adding more knocks will not be for me unless they up the sensitivity.

I agree. But still, the idea is brilliant

I thought the exact same thing. The question is also how complex the taps can be. Feels like there is a bit of a dangerous balance between having some security and actually being able to unlock the phone.

looking forward to seeing someone port this over to g2. the g pro 2 firmware(F350S) has been released and will eventually trickle down to us.. then someone should be able to port the feature.

I don't have any problems with knocking on or off and would love to see this implemented for our phones. Or, as someone else has already said, love to see a dev create or port the new app/feature for us.

Here's a link to BGR's article on it: http://bgr.com/2014/02/18/lg-g-pro-2...ck-code-works/
