Skip lock screen when at home Description

Tired of entering your password every time you turn on your phone? Unlock With WiFi™ unlocks your phone when you're connected to your home WiFi network. When you're at home, or work, you don't need to worry about losing your phone, so why should you have to enter your password?Unlock With WiFi is the leading password convenience app on the market. It's focus is on reliability, quality, and a great user experience. The setup wizard makes it easy to setup, and helpful dialogs are displayed if something isn't quite right.How it works:When you get home and connect to your WiFi network, your device will unlock. Then when you leave, and the WiFi disconnects, the device will lock again. You have to enter your password the first time after you connect to your WiFi network. This is so that if someone steals or finds your phone, they can't just bring it to your house to unlock it. After you enter your password once while connected to your WiFi network, you won't have to enter it again until you leave/disconnect. This is great for SMS texting!Additional Features:You can also set a lock delay, for when you're not at home. The default delay is set to 5 seconds (you can adjust it), so when you turn the screen off, the device won't lock until 5 seconds have passed. That way, if you remember something you forgot to do, you can turn it back on without entering your password. This feature is considered experimental at this time. It works on most devices, but isn't guaranteed to work on all devices.There are also battery saving options to: Turn off WiFi when you leave home
Turn on Bluetooth when you leave home
Turn off Bluetooth when you get home
Turn off Auto Sync when you leave home
Turn on Auto Sync when you get home

Sprint Note 2 (SPH-L900) WorkingMust have app to keep your device somewhat secure yet still convenient. So far it's working well with SPH-L900 aka Sprint's version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running 4.1.1 (stock rom and unrooted). I'll update this review if I encounter issues.

SG Note 4.0.4 Stock --- Very PleasedIts great when you find a programme that does just what you wanted. Have been using for 3 days and works well. Takes blood pressure down a notch ;-). At home with wifi on: no PIN hassle; away from home: no forgetting to secure your device. Bliss. ... John

Wonderful... until you get ICSI don't understand the developer's comment: "Patterns and face unlock are not supported. This is a limitation of ICS, not UWW. There's nothing I can do about this." There are at least two other, similar applications which support pattern lock (and I've used them), so how is this not a UWW problem? The only ubiquitous problem seems to be the passwd/pattern prompting when opening a status bar notification.
