Only works on first use If you need to install this on a new phone, you're going to have a bad time. Stick to third party apps. Also with the new version it seems you're also unable to reset your password. Yay for DRM on a unlocking app?

Great Update I always had trouble with this app and stuck to the developer's paid app. The latest update makes it easy to use with all my bugs squashed.

Works fine, minor bugs, UI not clear enough Locks and unlocks pretty well! Has some trouble recognizing the ring on about 1/40 uses. Should be able to set vibration on all the time, the little chime is annoying. Also had trouble with the timers, had them all deactivated, unfortunately.

Wasted Useless app, full of bugs. This company cannot be trusted, I would not let the security of my phone in their hands! Shame on you John and others! I backed your project and you turned my money into waste

Still lacks pattern backup option Update: I submitted this review back when this app first came out and it's still not fixed. When I don't have my NFC ring on me, I really need to be able to set a pattern backup for unlocking. I won't be using the ring/app until then as it's just too much effort until then.
