I have admittedly been mostly uninterested in most 3rd party applications most of the years that I have been a BlackBerry user, but recently I have found a hunger for finding new applications that bring either function or fun to my BlackBerry experience.  I would say that this change is mostly due to my purchase of the BlackBerry Torch 9800.  I admit that the impotent processor of the Torch definitely shows its weakness when adding some applications but having a large screen and the fact that the 9800 finally brings a normal touch screen experience to BlackBerry, definitely makes using applications more enjoyable.  So in my newly discovered hunger for apps, I have been hunting for interesting BlackBerry Applications both new and old to test and review for the other app hungry users out there.

Today’s BlackBerry Application is App Lock by Ajani InfoTech Private Limited is the kind of application that I have been wondering about for quite some time, its a simple yet genius application.  I believe there are lots of people who have "select" data or files on their BlackBerry that they would like to protect but have no desire to password protect their entire OS, because requiring a password every time you use your phone can be a royal pain in the ass.  However,  you may have nude pics that you took to send to your boyfriend or want to keep your mom out of your addressbook or don’t want your friends to get into your text messages when you fall asleep.  There are literally thousands of reasons that you could want to protect select information on your phone.  This is exactly what App Lock does, it allows you to a password to lock one or many files or applications on your BlackBerry(3rd party apps too!).  The other feature that I really appreciate is the fact that you can choose to have it lock all the time, every time you lock your phone, when the backlight turns off, or manually lock it when you decide.

***NOTE:  Torch users will not be able to install OTA because the vendor has not updated the browser recognition to support the Webkit Browser, you will have to install via Desktop Manager***

Store Description:

Prevent accidental Deletion or unauthorized viewing of sensitive documents on BlackBerry!

AppLock allows you to password protect specific application, emails and folders on BlackBerry without locking down the entire device. For ex, you can prevent accidental or unauthorized reading of private Emails, SMS and viewing of files, pictures, videos etc while leaving the device available to other usage like Phone or Internet Browsing.

The default BlackBerry password protection requires you to type in a password everytime you want to use the device. This is cumbersome and an annoyance to you only.

AppLock is far more efficient and non-intrusive – it only protects those apps that you really want to protect without locking down the whole device. Power in YOUR hands!
