Throttle Lock Updated to Version 0.8
One of the first Android-like apps for WM was one that resembled the OS’ locker. This app, created by XDA member APBilbo, has evolved through the years and it has turned out to be quite a useful lock screen replacement for WM. For those of you not familiar with Throttle Lock, it is a pattern-based lock screen in which you have to trace a path through a set of dots on the screen to unlock the device. This app is very simple to use and easily customizable (that includes theming as well). The new update addresses various bugs present in the previous version and seems to be far more stable than earlier releases.
Finally!! I’ve found some time to work in ThrottleLock this days and I’ve been able to solve the issues that the previous had including:
– Problems with autolock
– Problems with uninstalation
– Double locking on WM6.5
And some more improvements!
Please give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
You can find more information as well as a link to the dev’s website in the application thread.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year. Not too long ago we featured a...
HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
