The default password is the top left dot (just click on it). Once you have setted your own pattern (you can do that by tap&hold and then select change pattern) it's stored on a file called lockcode.txt in the app folder.
WOW! This app is amazing, especially for the first beta. Honestly, I'd use this as is with no changes. I think I'm going to skin it later this weekend to see how it looks. Therer were a few things I noticed however.
If you enter the wrong pattern, "again" is spelled "aggain".
The load time took about 5-6 seconds on my touch.
That was really all that I noticed with it. Works very smooth and and I really like the transparent affect on it!
Just a few suggestions:
Please keep it simple like it is, too much extra will just slow it down.
The option to overlap existing lines in the pattern would give some extra security.
Making it full screen with an extra row of dots.
Sorry to sound like a pain, but I really like this development and would like to see this grow a lot.
Omgawd. Alfonso. I love you. You always come out with the things i need at exactly the right time I was looking for something like the iPhone S2U. I know A_C almost perfected it, but i really wanted a passcode thing. I'm going to double lock my phone now, Throttle Lock under my S2U2.
