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?
Save your Battery While Enjoying a Beat with HoloMusic
There are various uses for our beloved devices. They can be used as personal assistants, to help you keep track of your morning work out, to remind you of important events, play the latest games, to enjoy movies while on the go, oh, and they can also be used to call people. (Go figure!) That said, one of the most widely used features of any mobile device over the past 20 years or so has been to play music. The Walkman, the CD player, and even the MP3 player have all brought us the joy of music while waiting for life to happen, but they all share one common problem: power management and fast battery drain. Our phones are no different.
XDA Forum Member HoloApps has been hard at work to try and tackle the issue, and has been able to come up with a pseudo solution. Yes, your phone will still eventually drain its battery, but at least it should last much longer. HoloMusic is a player that also has the built in ability to adjust your power settings to try and optimize the battery consumption. This makes HoloMusic ideal if you want to have music going for long periods but refuse to give in to the idea of not being able to use your phone afterwards.
The dev is asking for feedback on issues, bugs, and overall performance, as well as asking for feature suggestions. Please leave as many as you can.
