APP Lock Android App, Secure Private & Personal Info

Posted on Feb 17, 2012 in Tools, Top Rated Apps | 6 comments

The APP Lock Android app is a simple solution for protecting some (or all) of your applications with a number passcode or lockscreen style pattern.

  • Version: 1.21
  • Size: 600KB (no apps2SD)
  • Category: Tools
  • Price: Free

When you launch APP Lock for the first time, you’ll be asked to choose a passcode or pattern that will be required to open APP Lock and any secured applications. As many of you already know, it’s best practice to use a completely unique password that would be difficult for someone to guess. Also, avoid using the same passcode or lockscreen pattern as you’ve set for the phone itself.

CloudMagic Android App: Fast, Personal Search Engine

Posted on Feb 12, 2012 in Tools, Top Rated Apps | 1 comment

The CloudMagic Android app (and browser extension) lets you search across personal data services using a single query, minimizing the time it takes to find what you’re looking for.

  • Version: 1.1.3
  • Size: 1.16MB (apps2SD enabled, removes widget)
  • Category: Tools
  • Price: Free
Currently, the CloudMagic Android app only supports the following services:
  • Gmail
  • Google Apps Email
  • Google Docs
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Contacts
  • Twitter

CloudMagic works by indexing upfront the data (e.g. email, documents, contacts) found in the services listed above.  Each individual search you place with CloudMagic combs through all of the data simultaneously and returns results separated by the type of data. For more targeted searches, make use of descriptive qualifiers like “from:” “to:” “filename:” and “tweet:”. Search results are updated instantaneously as you enter more detailed text in the search field. The search algorithm is even sophisticated enough to handle partial searches, which if you’re forgetful like me are an extremely common occurrence.
