Users set PINs and patterns to unlock lockscreen not because that's fun. Actually, it's quite annoying but that's the price we all have to pay to keep our phones "safe". There are some apps that try to offer solutions such as automatically switch off lockscreen when the phone is closed to a location (often using GPS). Skip Lock Screen is different: it only disables lockscreen when you are connected to "known" and "allowed" WiFi networks.
Thus, after downloading the app you must set your "home" or "work" or whatever network you consider safe. After adding it to the app, you'll be able to use your phone with no need to unlock it all the time. However, first time you connect to any of those network, you'll have to input the security code you have previously set. That's to avoid anyone approaching your home and connecting to your network after stealing your phone.
In addition, other battery saving options can be performed automatically after connecting/disconnecting our "known" networks such as: turn off WiFi when leaving home, turn on/off bluetooth, turn on/off auto sync or set a lock delay (experimental).
