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?
CommandCenter – Automate Your Most Commonly Used Terminal Commands
If you’re tired of having to fiddle around with a terminal emulator or ADB to perform commands that you use on a regular basis, then XDA member chamonix has developed an app that you might want to check out.
In the developer’s own words;
“Here comes CommandCenter, a generic app for grouping all your favorite commands.”
The command sets are stored on the sdcard in the app’s private folder (/sdcard/Android/data/com.asksven.commandcenter/files) in the form of json files. On load the files are parsed and each file (Command Set) shown as a tab. A single click on a Command displays its details, a long click pops up a dialog from where you can run the command.”
The app is free (with ads) from the market and is also fully open source.
It comes with a preconfigured set of commands for logging/diagnosis and certainly looks like a very promising tool for automating some of those important, yet sometimes arduous tasks. It is however, at a very early stage so there may still be some bugs to iron out.
