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?
TrackMe for Google Earth & Maps Now in Windows Phone 7
If you come from the golden age of Windows Mobile, sure you`ll remember the tracking tool TrackMe, a GPS tracker that according to it`s creator, uses the location services on your phone to retrieve your current position. The information can be used for displaying tracks in real time or pre-recorded with Google Earth, Maps, or similar tools where you can also export your data to other formats. XDA member _LEM_ now presents the Windows Phone 7 version, which while it does not come with all the features WM used to have, it is very stable and functional according to members using the app. If the dev finds people interested in this app, he will continue to develop it to get the missing functionality from the WM version.
Get it for free in the usual place and if you like it, please leave your feedback.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
TrackMe uploads your data to a server. If you don’t have an internet connection or you prefer not to use it while you are tracking, you can store your data locally on your phone and upload it later when an internet connection is available. You can use my server (free of charge) for uploading your data. TrackMe is already configured to use this server by default.
HOW CAN I VIEW MY DATA?
Once your data is uploaded you can view it by going to http://luisespinosa.com/trackme and using the web viewer for Google Maps developed by the community. You can also export your data to a KML or GPX file and use Google Earth or any other tool that accepts that format. Remember that you cannot view or export your data until is has been uploaded to the server.
