Safe Slideshow

Hi guys :)
Taking a lot of pictures during my holidays I had an idea for an app and this is the final result

Description
hVV3L0kV_v2hzEOJoNry00Fsb7hGagq8MrlIj7l0dAPAjU0_X7wOUbRiG6C8yknfpw=h310


Very often we shoot amazing photos with our smartphone on holidays, special days, birthdays, and much more.
Then, when we want to show them to our friends we have no alternative except leave our device in their hands without so much control.
Even if you not have nothing to keep secret or to worry about, it's not so appropriate to leave all our data (like Whatsapp, Facebook, photos, etc.) accessible to anyone.

With Safe Slideshow you can avoid all these problems. You can choose which photos show to your friends, start the slideshow and sitdown. The app will lock your screen (like when you press the power button on the device side) and then show a scrollable slideshow with photos you chose. When someone close the slideshow device require your PIN or Pattern to unlock, so your data are safe.
