  • AndroidLock: Lock/Unlock your iPhone, Android Style


    An Android phone features a unique lockscreen, where you have to connect various dots to unlock your phone rather than enter in a passcode or slide to unlock. There are 9 dots in total, and gives a little extra security just incase your friend happens to look over while you punch in your numbered code.

    Just released to Rock and Cydia, comes AndroidLock, available now for free. This iPhone and iPod tweak will transform your iPhone lockscreen into an Android styled lockscreen where you connect dots in the same manner to unlock your phone. Simply draw the pattern to unlock.

    After installing it, go to Settings > AndroidLock, to set the pattern. Requires 4 or more dots to be used.
    On a side note, there were many discussions about the androids security flaws in their lockscreen method being hackable by a certain combination, however, my guess is there will be some sort of issue here, some way to get around it. We'll soon find out.

      Needs a few things though:

      -Needs to work like the passcode screen. After you slide to unlock it should slide up, then when you're done swiping your code, it should slide back down.

      -It is easy to get around when you have BiteSMS installed. (just press the volume rocker up, tap for quick compose, then press open. That unlocks the phone and brings you to the SMS app).

      -On/off option

      -Different skins would be cool as well.
      Nah! I'll pass on this one. It doesn't convince me. It covers my background screen. They should design a cool theme for this. I'll wait till it's properly done.

      So would it work with LockScreen 2.0? Or will they conflict?

      I second this. Without the slide to unlock it just covers up my background and lockinfo. On/off would be great too.

      Fix for if you have calanderlock
      on bottom where the slide to unlock would be touch between the dots and slide your finger up to the dot that would start your unlock... be careful not to select any of the other dots or you will have to start over.

      this worked for me then i uninstalled calanderlock
