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?
Simplify Your Music Experience in Android with Just Music
Music players have evolved through the years, and their user interfaces with them. The UI in some of these has gotten overly complex as they have controls that will allow users to do more than just play music. XDA member mrodlies decided that it was time to roll this complexity back a few notches and came up with this simplistic (almost Zune look-alike) music player concept for Android. The app’s name is still being thought of, but it matches the concept of the player rather well as it is very light and more focused on the music than on the UI itself.
The player is still under development, but if you like the idea and think that you can help bring this concept to life, please drop by the thread and talk to the dev.
I’ve tried so many music apps for android, yet I keep running back to my Zune80 to play music. I do this because it is just a better experience for playing music. The problem with this is I have to carry both my Vibrant and my Zune. So I started working on a simplistic music app called Just Music(working name, not final).
