LockScreen One Touch for All Given Significant Update

Not too long ago, we talked a little bit about a lock screen replacement developed by XDA Forum Member GoodAppsTeam that gave users easy access to various shortcuts, while retaining lock screen security.

As a refresher, when unlocking their phones, users are presented with a set of applications that function as your security grid. Just as in the standard pattern unlock, you simply enter in your unlock pattern as usual to unlock your phone. However, differing from the traditional pattern unlock, you land on the application that you wish to open.

Since then, the developers have not been sitting idly. Aside from a few speed improvements, additional languages, and bug fixes; LockScreen One Touch for All now features a persistent notification in your status bar. While this may seem as somewhat of an inconvenience, this is actually important for increased security, as it prevents the application from being closed when the device is low on memory.

To get started, visit the application thread.

The feature make use of the devices sensor to smartly recognize when you have left your device for an extended period. During this period, wakelocks will be minimized. However, you can still continue on receiving higher priority notifications. Needless to say, this does have a tradeoff of not having up to date syncs across...
