If there’s one thing that annoys us about lock screens and Android it’s that we can grow tired of the process pretty quickly. Case in point – playing Wordfeud or any other turn-based game. It becomes aggravating to constantly unlock the phone over and over just to play a word. That’s why I am a big fan of Unlock With WiFi. Today sees the developer Ben Hirashima releasing a 2.0 update into the Android Market, with a couple of user-requested features.
Unlock With WiFi lets users bypass the pesky lock screen based on defined Wi-Fi connections. In other words, once you tell the app which Wi-Fi zones are your home or work connections then you can hop right into the home screen. In addition to that, users can toggle settings to automatically turn on/off GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AutoSync based on the Wi-Fi connection.
A new Device Admin mode maintains the slide-to-unlock screen when passwords are turned turned off and also prevents volume buttons from turning display on.
Unlock With Wifi only runs a one-time $4.00 purchase and works on phones and tablets running Android 2.1 or higher.
