[App] G-Sensor Based touchscreen Locker

After a month and a half with the TP, I really wanted a better locker. One that would if the phone were in a given position would lock the phone if I forgot to. I can't count the number of times that I made "Case calls" becuase my phone resumed while in my belt pouch. This application works much better for me than the others out there.


I am still working on the UI (it's a bit plain Jane at the moment, but before I clean up the look I'd really like to get some feedback on the application and Ideas for the final "look" of the application.

Here is version 0.1.0.10. the First stable public Beta.

Once G-Locker is loaded, if you turn the phone in a specific direction the locker will engage. Then with a "flick" of the wrist in the correct direction, it will unlock.

The initial defaults are:
To Lock: Turn the phone with either long side facing down (or gently flick to the side).
To Unlock: "Flick" the phone in a side to side direction.

To adjust the settings lock the phone then press the Settings Button (You have access to the button for 5 seconds before it disables)

Available settings:
Locking Direction
Unlocking Gesture
Locking Sensitivity (gives some control over phone angle required to lock)
Unlocking Sensitivity (Controls the acceleration force required to unlock)
Number of Seconds to wait before checking to relock the phone
Options to:
Lock the Phone on Suspend
Check if the phone should be locked on Resume
AutoStart (NOT IMPLEMENT AT THIS TIME)
Lock the Panel when Starting G-Locker

Re: [App] G-Sensor Based touchscreen Locker

will this drain my battery? Does it constantly monitor the sensor?

Re: [App] G-Sensor Based touchscreen Locker

2 problems with this program...

1. only works when it wants too it was working fine for 2 min then it just stopped..

2. you need to get it to work when you turn off the screen instead of having to start the program before we turn the screen off... other than that looks like your off to a good start

i like this program more than the s2u2 the only problem is that its still glitchy...

Re: [App] G-Sensor Based touchscreen Locker

Actually the Old adage "he who hesitates is lost" fits real well here. I started this project about 7 weeks ago (when I couldn't find anything on google regarding a sensor based locker). Unfortunately it sat on the back burner for the past 5 weeks while I worked on hunting down the power and heating issues I was having. Then I never really bothered to do another Google search (until today) seems there are a number of these out there.

At this point though I'm inclined to drop this project unless I really can't find something else that works (no need reinventing the wheel any further!)


Should I decide to resume development, I'll post here then. Thanks for those that took a look at it.
