Requirements: Android 1.6+
Overview: Not using any pattern-, PIN- or password-lock is a huge security problem, but reentering your PIN a hundred times a day can also be annoying. DelayedLock is a solution to this problem: After unlocking your phone, it will turn the lock screen off for a user defined amount of time.
You can turn your phone off and on as often as you want without entering your password/PIN/pattern again. After a certain time, it will automatically reactivate your lockscreen, so no stranger can access your personal data.
Additionally, there is also a notification in the Android status bar and a widget to immediately reenable the lock screen.
DOES NOT WORK IF EXCHANGE REQUIRES A PIN!
Free trial version is available to test the app with your phone (search for 'DelayedLock Trial'). PLEASE TEST IT BEFORE BUYING!
