Smart Lock V1.2.4
----------------------------------------
DOWNLOAD http://db.tt/kBtgcx6N

- PIN unlock automatic now. (No longer need to tap the tic)

-Delay timer Seconds slider

- 1.2.2 bigger PIN keypad

- improved screen state detection should use less ram and cause less battery drain.

Welcome to Smart Lock... The Security of a PIN lock and convenience of swipe combined
----------------------------------------

----------------------------------------
>>> #1 FEATURES & QUICK START GUIDE
----------------------------------------
The App UI is VERY simple to use:

#1 Set your PIN, screen off delay & global state.

#2 Thats it! if you turn your screen on before the set delay you get normal Android lock screen. After you get Smart Lock PIN guard immediately after.

if you forget your PIN at any time simply wipe Smart Lock app data to reset to the default PIN '0000' and chose a new one next time you launch the app.

Since the min delay is 1min, you will always be able to do this after a reboot. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to use thie app in combination with a sim PIN lock to block entry upon reboot and you are secure.

The rest is so easy i wont bother insulting your intelligence explaining it.

The lock screen this app uses is independent from Android and will appear after you unlock with any Android lock method.

----------------------------------------
>>> #2 THE CONCEPT:
----------------------------------------
The idea behind Smart Lock is to combine the convenience of the Android swipe Lock screen with the security of a protected lock screen (either pattern or PIN).

This is achieved by using a secondary independent PIN guard blocking overlay which will block access to the Android UI without a successful PIN entry.

This PIN activated system guard can be set to block access to the touch screen. A user selectable delay once the screen switches off will activate it.

Combined this with a sim lock on boot, together they will protect your phone from theft or prying eyes while AT THE SAME TIME saving you from needing to enter your PIN every time you check your phone during instant message sessions or any other sort of frequent use.

The app can easily be reverted to a default PIN by wiping the app data ANY TIME. Since the min PIN activation delay is 1 minute from Screen off there is no danger of locking yourself out of your phone since a simple reboot and app data wipe will clear a forgotten or unknown PIN...

So how can this possibly be secure I hear you ask?

Well its quite simple: With a SIM PIN in place a user will need to know this to get into Andriod after a reboot. without this Smart Lock app data can't be wiped to reset the PIN...

So you have day a 15 minute delay on Smart Lock. Your phone gets stolen and likely the Smart Lock PIN has activated by the time someone tries to use it. They then reboot the phone and your SIM block PIN prevents them getting in!! Meanwhile you are enjoying the convenience of a simple swipe lock screen most of the time not to mention Android 4.2.2 lock screen widgets!

Thumbs up
Hi rlorange,

Thanks for that bright idea, finally we have a way to have widgets AND a decent security on 4.2.2 !
May I ask you if you plan to add new features to your neat app, as there is some improvement I see that would make it even better

I am Dev to if your source code is on GIT then post the link.

Hope, more devs will contribute to make life easier with high security.

Note :- I am not forcing you to post the GIT or other stuff just an suggestion if you want take it else let it flow.

Thanks! V1.1 is better! I'm going to focus on improving stability and keep it simple for now. I'm still getting the monitor fail on me and not bring the PIN up occasionally. I'll tweak the task system for now
