*NOT FOR ICS 4.0*
*NOT For tablets or the Galaxy Note...I said this earlier down in my description but it appears the Galaxy Note users who gave the app 1 star failed to read the entire description.

NEW LOCK SCREEN REPLACEMENT! INFINITE COMBINATIONS! PATTERN DISAPPEARS ONCE iLockit Lock Screen IS SET. THE USER WILL ONLY SEE A PICTURE.
PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PRIOR TO PURCHASING THE APPLICATION AND WE WILL RESPOND ASAP
If you are veer locked out of device by inputting the incorrect password, you will be prompted to input the username and pin you inputted when you first set your recovery information when you use the application for the first time.
iLockit Lock Screen is a replacement lock screen that utilizes personal images and hidden patterns as a method for unlocking your phone.
This application allows the user to select from their gallery of images. Next the user can create any pattern they can imagine by using iLockit’s 4 pattern tools by placing them on the image.
1. TAP – Tap any point on the image to unlock your phone
2. HOLD – Hold any point on the image for a predetermined amount of time to unlock your phone
3. TRIP – Draw a line on the image and “trip” or “cut” the line to unlock the phone. ( YOU DO NOT TRACE THE TRIP LINE. YOU CUT IT)
4. MULTI – Press two different points on the image to unlock the phone
Once the tools are placed onto the image, and the lock screen is saved and enabled, the pattern tools disappear and all that is left is your picture. All of the tools above can be used to create a one touch or trip line lock screen for quick access or a complicated pattern with multiple steps to prevent unwanted guests.
The greatest thing about iLockit is that you can use something of yours that you can graphically relate to, and actually not forget, to set as your lock screen. For example, my son loves to ride his tricycle. So the other day I took a picture of him on his tricycle and loaded it into the application as the base image. I placed a tap location over the left wheel, then the right wheel, and finally a hold over his face. Now when I unlock my phone, I tap the left wheel, the right and hold my finger over his face for two seconds and I am in.
WHY DO YOU LOCK YOUR PHONE? TO AVOID POCKET DIALING?
SAME FUNCTIONALITY, SAME MOTION, ADDED SECURITY.
Pocket dialers don't want to be inconvenienced with having to input a long password or pattern sequence when trying to unlock their device. They only want to complete one motion or one step to bypass the Lock Screen. Traditionally this could be accomplished several different ways. The important thing to recognize is that all of these ways that are used to access the phone do not in any way act as a security function or as a deterrent. With iLockit Lock Screen, you now have both.
You can setup your device to be accessed by inputting only one motion or step. The difference is that the motion or step is completely hidden from everyone. Only the person who defined the step or motion knows how to access their device. Basically iLockit Lock screen allows the user to keep the simplicity of unlocking the device with one motion or step, but adds a level of security that the user previously never had.
**you must remove the "tap to unlock" button from the lock screen by unchecking it in the options page.
WARNING! iLockit is ADDICTIVE!
Once you unlock your phone with one pattern, you start to see your pictures differently. “Maybe I can tap the head of my friend, then my dog, then swipe through my brothers leg, because I wish he could use only one leg growing up because he was always faster.”
