 Projects-TO BE UPDATED

DynPin Beta
Highly Ranked

Nov 2011 - Jul 2012

The application which receieved a 70K downloads and reached position 147 in the top free charts of the Google Play Store. A security-based mobile application which enabled users to have a dynamic pin to unlock their devices. The pin would simply be the time and users have an option to use a modifier to change the pin. For example, time = 12:45 the pin would be 1245. Using modifiers the pin could be
    5421 (reverse)
    1246 (number +1)
    12455421 (mirror image)
and much more. Used AndroidDeviceManager API to change the pin by making the call every minute. Decreased battery consumption by 37% by making service calls when the display was on.

Newsensus
