This app's target is to provide a cool way to lock the device along with some security. For that purpose the device CANNOT be unlocked without the correct code. It's really important to remember the pattern you entered at it's startup. I recomend performin a backup before installing this app. This app is provided 'As Is' and I take no responsibility of possible harm or lost of data derived from it's use.

Please, this page contains important information. Take some time reading it before using the app. You can also use the forum to share your experience, find skins and ask for support.
- WM 5 / 6 / 6.1/ 6.5. Device.
- Net.CF 2.0 or 3.5 installed
- 1 MB of storage space.
- 2 MB of free mem.
- Will work on any device screen! It's tested to work in qVGA, wqVGA,VGA and wVGA.

Copy the CAB file to your device and execute it from there ;). Then softreset. You will see some new shortcuts in Start Menu > Programs
Important: install to device memory! The instalation process will ask you to select where to install the application... only device memory is supported on this version. Any other storage will make the application crash.
There's a tool called "ThrottleLock Settings" at StartMenu > Programs where you can configure how ThrottleLock works.
The most important ones are the lock automatically and Idle time before lock that will make the device lock when ever you turnoff the device and the timeout is reached.
The app is fully skinable. You can easyly develop new skins by copying the Default skin to another folder inside the skins folder and replacing the png graphics with the ones you like. You can also change font's and spacings by modifying skin.xml file.
Also the app suports multilanguaje. Spanish, English, French, German and Swedish translations are included (though the configuration tool is only available in english at the moment)... To translate the app to your languaje just copy the texts.txt file to a file called texts_XXX.txt where XXX is the 3 chars ISO code for your languaje and then translate the texts inclued in that file. Respect the line orders and cariage returns, also take care to keep the UTC16 encoding. If you have a translation file and want to share it don't heistate posting it at the forum! I will include it in further releases.
Please find and share skins in the themes section.
