nUnLock: Iphone Style Slide Unlock Screen For Symbian

Paying money for your mobile doesn’t assure you of an all function inclusive mobile device and Nokia 5230/5800/5233 (and other OS 9.4 phones) are no exception. The unlock key as provided in Nokia Touch phone’s isn’t the most adorable feature. Many users including me aren’t happy with the slide lock as regular use may result in its breakage and/or malfunctioning. And because of this reason i previously shared with you PocketLock (You can read about it here). There is a similar utility called nUnlock which does the same function but is one step ahead. nUnlock, a product of ThinkChange, when enabled, shows a home-screen instead of the usual default Nokia screen with an on-screen shiny unlock slider.


nUnLock Home-screen example on Nokia 5230

nUnlock is a nifty mobile application for Full touch phone’s devised to avoid the usage of physical slide lock/unlock button. nUnlock installs on phone memory and because the installation size is small, it doesn’t put a strain on the already depleting memory (as in my case). The usage is pretty basic, activate it and next time when you lock your device, a new display will be shown with a shiny unlock slider at the bottom of screen (use your finger/thumb to slide it for unlocking). As far as configuration of the application is concerned, it has a lot to offer viz. Ability to choose background, degree of transparency, text colour, Slider sensitivity, Auto start, etc. Everything is straight forward, nothing much to explain about. All in all it’s a good application if you are tired of using the side lock button and a must have for those whose mobile phone’s lock button isn’t in a working condition.

My Opinion

Though a good application but the only problem that i faced and defeated the purpose of owing this application was it’s ability to ONLY unlock the device (though there is an option to Auto Lock but not everyone uses it.) i.e there is no way/gesture to lock it using this application which makes me, as a user, still dependent on the lock button. And because of this reason, it cannot be used a replacement for the side lock button which was not in case of PocketLock. Plus, the full working version of nUnlock is paid and costs 4.99 $ . However, this being said, i would still recommend you to use this useful mobile application just because it gives a shows an appealing home-screen and if used properly with Auto Lock functionality can be of great use!
