AppLock from Do Mobile does exactly what its name says, and that is lock apps on your Android device. Once the app has been installed it will display a list of all the apps that it can lock. With a simple toggle of the slider, you can lock the apps, but there are a few more helpful functions built in.
AppLock also allows you to lock other features on your device such as installing or uninstalling apps, calls, access to the settings and more. You can also use the buttons to search for apps on your mobile or toggle the settings on or off. There’s also a tray where you can get to the Unlock Settings and change the pattern lock or the PIN.
Once an app is locked, a login prompt screen appears when you try to use it. You can still go to the navigation tray and home screen, but it does the job as far as locking the app is concerned. AppLock also lets you adjust which programs are locked on the fly. There is also support for profiles. During the locking up process, you will receive instructions so you understand what is happening.
The setup is particularly well designed, which is essential for a security app like this one. The locking procedure works as well as advertised, and the procedures are a no-brainer. What AppLock does is provide you with a method for sharing apps and your device without being completely public. Bottom line, AppLock is a very useful app.
