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?
VR Tunnel Live Wallpaper
If you remember the VR holographic demo app that was floating around for winmo devices back in the day when the HTC Diamond was brand new, then you’ll like this.
It’s VR tunnel Live Wallpaper for Android devices developed by XDA forum member chopsui.
It’s a pretty detailed LWP, with options to change the colour of the cubes – all one colour or you have the option to select various colours together, the speed and direction of the cubes, the tunnel colour and lots more.
The LWP is currently in testing and as such has not been released to the Market, but is posted in the application thread where chopsui is looking for testers. Confirmed to be working on the Google Nexus One, chopsui needs testers for other devices such as a Milestone, Droid, or Galaxy S.
The thumbnail here doesn’t really do it justice so drop by the application thread to view the youtube vid of VR Tunnel in action and to help out with the testing.
