Hey guys
I just published my first serious app on the android market and would like to give some of you the opportunity to test it for free. edit: sorry, i cant give away any more test licenses. but i released a trial app, so everyone can now test it for free

The app is called Delayed Lock and simply delays the activation of the secure lockscreen for a user definied amount of time or while connected to WiFi/Bluetooth. You can choose to start the activation timer whether on the last successful unlock or on display off time and immediately reenable the lockscreen through a notification in the status bar or a widget.

Main Features:
  • Delayes the requirement to enter pattern/PIN/password again after succesfully unlocked once
  • No lockscreen while connected to certain WiFi network or Bluetooth devices
  • Time delay since "Screen off" or since "Last unlock"
  • Quickly re-enable the lock through the Android notification bar or a widget
  • Widgets & Shortcuts: Toggle Lock, Screen off, Screen off & Lock, Enable / Disable DelayedLock
  • Free plugins: Disable lockscreen while at certain locations or use the Tasker app to control the lockscreen
  • automatically wipe the device after several failed unlocks
  • auto disable USB-debugging on rooted devices (on 4.0 - 4.2.1, not necessary on 4.2.2+)


General limitations:
  • Does not work if your Exchange policy requires a PIN! (might work if your device is rooted though)
  • Pattern lock & FaceUnlock require root on Android 4.0+
  • Does not work on all devices, see section Device incompatibility
  • Requires root if full device encryption is enabled
  • Incompatible with NoLED, No Lock & some other apps
  • Please use the "Uninstall" option from within the app to uninstall it

Device incompatibility:
  • Some HTC devices: Pattern lock might not work
  • Some Samung devices: Notification bar might be accessable even in locked state
  • Samsung Galaxy S5: User reported that after 3 days, the device does not accept the PIN/password any more. Make sure you enable the "Android Device Manager" to remotely change your password in case this happens! Also try to disable the fingerprint feature before setting up Delayed Lock

This thread is supposed to be a support thread, so dont hesitate to post any (positive or negative) feedback or feature requests

The app the QR code points to is a paid app. There is no free version.

Thanks, but it is not because of the half buck you want for your app, it is not even about commercial apps - I have no problems with them.

But I will have problems with this forum if it (or parts of it) turns into a support forum for commercial apps. And your app qualifies as commercial, since, as things stand now, it is not available in another form.

oh I'm sorry, it didnt want to violate the board rules. i was just looking for some guys who would like to help me test my app on more acutal devices (emulator kinda sucks on lockscreen stuff) and didnt know where to find them except here ^^

i dont think i'm able to delete the thread, but if a moderator reads this...

Yes, one of the prerequisites for having a thread here is that there must be at least a free/crippled version for the members to test. Having a sorely paid or individually selected sent app is not allowed iirc.

Really annoying how the trial version displays that screen after unlocking. But it did get me to buy the app Good price too.
