Ditto! This is one of the neat features of S5 that i really like. Hopefully it comes to S4 in future updates..

BTW is there a privacy mode on Google Play which minimizes the viewing angles on the phone? I've seen some Japanese phones like from Fujitsu that have this. I guess it's just software based and it can be turned on and off.

don't know about this type of software functionality as i never heard such thing. but once i had a multi layered screen protector on my Nokia E5 which did the same thing. Only the person looking directly at the screen had a clear look.

I use pattern lock simply. Those app lock apps are buggy and vulnerable.

There're numerous times that someone want your phone and there're your private stuff and there's no need for a 3rd party app that will prompt passpword i just think this is a good move by samsung. Well done improve android

i guess it will take lot of time to move to private dpending on files size.
i use file locker app by marcin wojas from play store, it can hide any folder or files by just long tapping on it, and than hidden files dissappears from third party apps like mx player but only problem is it is visible in gallery.

Great thing . Looks much better than the apps in the GP, but one question:
Does it works with the email apps???? This is what I need most. Not to delete the account every time after checking the email.

Nice. I have been using Photo Vault...and thats works really well. So well if it gets deleted...and you have photos in the vault....your photos are still locked up. You would have to install it again. No issues with old passwords....a new one will still open them.
