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?
Multi-Window Complete Control v2 for Verizon Galaxy Note II
One of the flagship features of Samsung’s Galaxy Note line is Multi-Window, which offers true on-screen multitasking by allowing you to simultaneously open two apps on the screen. Due to its popularity, it has even made its way officially to the Galaxy S III in the latest firmware updates, and unofficially ported to the good ole’ Galaxy S II right here at XDA.
While the feature is quite useful as it comes, our developer community isn’t exactly known for being content with stock features. As proof, we have seen several mods that extent the feature to support almost any app. XDA Recognized Developer LegendK95 has taken it one step further and released MultiWindow Complete Control for the Verizon Galaxy Note 2.
As the name implies, this mod grants you full control over the MultiWindow bar, allowing you to easily add or remove applications, sort them in alphabetical order, and even control Samsung’s predefined applications in the MultiWindow view. Do note that the mod is available for devices running a deodexed ROM based on the VRALJB firmware.
You can find more information, the download link, and installation instructions in the forum thread.
