From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Add Some Random to Your Ring
Are you one of the many who get tired of hearing the same old ring tone every time? Want to add some randomness to your phone. Well with the work of user howdykeith and his app Mr. Tones now you can! You can use this new app to not only make your ring tone random every time your phone rings, but you can also make the text message and email tones random too! Add a little random to your phone and confuse the heck out of your friends with your always changing tones!
Here you will find an app to set a group of sounds for each ring type; New email/SMS or phone ringer.
You can set up to 256 directories of sound files for each ring type, although you probably won’t be needing so many directories. In each folder you can have as many sound files as you want. I could remove the 256 folder limit if we need me to…
When it is activated, you will hear the captain say “Energized”. Then after the sounds will be switched automatically each time you get a new call/email/sms.
