How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description

App Lock helps protects the security of your Android device. This app locks applications such as e-mails and text messages. You set the password for specific applications after altering the initial password "1234". So the next time someone picks up your phone to snoop around your private business, App Lock will block their access to sensitive information.

You can also set up a password hint to help you remember your password. The password hint is displayed when you open the app, and you have the option to shut this feature off. App Lock comes in five different themes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lock? April 18, 2012
By Jason
I can't get this thing to lock anything. I changed the password, added apps to the lock, but everything still opens with nothing. Maybe its cause I have android 4.0? I like the app it just does nothing for me....

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't change initial password January 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
The app is useless unless one can change the password from the one displayed. There are no instructions and can find nothing in settings to do this.
