Good! Does exactly what I need it to do with none of that extra unnecessary stuff. Issues, tho- phone unlocked after it turns back on after dying and I feel like sometimes it randomly doesn't lock? One thing I'd like is a feature that doesn't let you turn a scheduled lock off for a certain amount of time before it happens, and/or smth that has a password for being able to turn off a lock during/before it's active. I *love* the emergency call feature.

It's a great idea, just what I needed. The issue is that just now, it randomly decided to lock my phone, for 1046 minutes. I hadn't set a timer for that, and the highest time I've set it to lock for is 300 minutes. 1046 minutes is 17 hours. I had reboot protection on, so I rebooted my phone, quickly went into system settings, logged in over and over as it locked, and removed Keep Me Out as a system admin. I like this app, but if it won't work reliably every single time, I can't use it.

So far I have no complaints whatsoever about this app, it does as it states it will, flawlessly. My only request would be if you had an option to select just certain apps you wish to be kept out of, text, messenger, email, Facebook, and even the play keep you from downloading new apps as a work around. I've got several apps I would like to use, but many more I'd block. Thanks!
