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.
