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?
Cloudsend Introduces New UI with Update
XDA previously introduced an app called CloudSend, which allows users to upload files from their Android device to cloud storage and then provides a file link which can be shared. The developers behind CloudSend, including XDA Forum Member AMPElement, have recently launched the ‘Finally it’s here’ update. This update brings the introduction of a new user interface and Google’s standard Holo theme, among various other improvements.
Improvements brought on with CloudSend’s new update include a refreshed tutorial, ability to re-share previously uploaded files, and improvements to upload speed and responsiveness. However, it is CloudSend’s introduction of a user interface (and more functionality), that is most notable. The application now allows the management of uploaded files, and provides the various options of sharing selected uploads.
Aesthetically, the UI has been revamped in concordance with Google’s standardized application theme, Holo UI. Widespread adoption of Holo UI has given Android users with an eye for design reason to celebrate, as they are now able to enjoy increasingly consistent interfaces and aesthetics ever since the introduction of Google application design guidelines. It is important for app developers to adopt Google’s design guidelines as Android grows, as this provides a more consistent experience to end users. Find out how you can implement Google’s Holo UI into your apps.
