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?
Pinch to Zoom for Any Device Available Soon
Are you jealous that the only WM device that can replicate the multi-touch ability of the iPhone is the HD2? Do you have issues while trying to zoom in on your favorite pictures while using HTC Album? XDA member OndraSter brings us the answer to your prayers. Although it isn’t yet released (but will be soon), this app/driver will enable multi-touch capability on pretty much any WM device with a touchscreen. The dev is currently ironing out a few kinks left and even though he will release it sometime next week, he has released a video showing that this is very much the real thing (no camera tricks, no gimmicks).
Testing and developing device is being used TMOUS HTC Touch Pro 2. No, this isn’t fake using zoombar, this is real thing. Oh and I used Opera 9.7 from TMOUS LEO 2.13 ROM I think .
It should work in theory in any application. It took me about 4 hours to fixup Opera in order to find out, that Album uses different stuff, with Album and other apps I’ll play later this week.
I will provide download and all other support later this week once I fix up last few things. But main functionality is up and running quite fine.
Thanks for watching and let me create one more free post for some stuff (list of supported apps, …)
You can find more information on the development thread.
