Delayed Lock turns off your pattern for a few minutes, so you don't have to swipe it every time you check your phone."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1308016249.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>This app could be a great little time saver.&nbsp; If you use a secure lock screen and find it annoying when you need to unlock often you should really check out <a href="https://market.android.com/details?id=de.j4velin.delayedlock2" target="_blank">Delayed Lock by J4velin</a>.&nbsp; It is very configurable and will let you set an amount of time that it will wait after the screen is locked before requiring your password or pattern to be entered.&nbsp; It has other options too, even letting you delay the password/pattern based on your location.&nbsp; Their is a free trial available but the full version is only $1.45.&nbsp; If you have an HTC device with Sense you already have some of its features.&nbsp; It apparently has a check box for you if you have Sense so it can extend your built in features.&nbsp; If this app helps you please let us know!</p>
