Used to be far better Used to love this app on my Samsung Stratosphere, but since I got a new phone, the Verizon GS3, the app will turn the screen off, then after two seconds it will pop back on. Also, when I went to remove it as an administrator and uninstall, my phone wouldn't allow my the option. I had to go through my root browser and delete the apk file. Which isn't really much of a hassle, but for people without a rooted device, it may be. Also, Google still thinks I have this app installed...
Very Useful App One press of the button and the screen turns off and locks automatically. I use it literally hundreds of times per day instead of waiting for the screen to turn off or physically pressing the power button. Great app and I've had no problems with it what so ever. TO THOSE WHO SAY IT IS USELESS, READ THE NAME OF THE APP. THATS WHAT IT DOES.
5 WORKS! 1st READ!!! DIRECTED TO THOSE WHO CAN'T UNINSTALL! 2nd I rate it a 5. It does what's described. It didn't do what I was looking for: Screen lock and unlock so that I wouldn't continue wearing out the top button. I FOLLOWED THE UNINSTALL PROCEDURE IN THERE DESCRIPTION AND HAD NO PROBLEMS.
Cannot uninstall on Optimus phones The idea of a lock screen widget could be helpful to someone. For me, I downloaded it thinking it was something else. So, when I went to uninstall it, I couldn't. So I checked it out online and saw I had to remove it as a device administrator. So I did, and when I unchecked it it never came unchecked. It just refuses to get off of my phone. Someone has to fix this, we ought to have complete control of what's on our phones. Thanks.
The first thing I install on a new Android ...either a tablet or a phone. Add the widget, push the button-like icon, see the screen locking. I had no problem on Samsung S3,Samsung J5,HTC Desire C or Vonino tablet, nor did I hear complaints from my friends who are using it.
This Sucks! This app sucks! It's crap. I wanted a totally new look for my lock screen. All it does is lock your screen. My power button is fine, I don't need a widget to lock my phone. On top of that, it won't uninstall. It keeps telling me to deactivate it and I did but it still says deactivate and not uninstall.
Door screen lock is an amazing, stylish and secure locker for your device.
