What’s this?

Last month I bought myself a Nexus 7 tablet to learn more about Android. I’ve been really enjoying it (I’ll write more about it soon), but honestly I haven’t found too much in the way of software that’s unique to the platform.

There has been one gem, though: SkipLock, a nifty utility that does something I’ve wanted on iOS for a long time: it lets you identify trusted wi-fi networks and, when the device is on those networks, it allows you to bypass the password screen. I use a pretty lengthy and complicated password, so being able to modify the default behavior in this way makes life much easier. SkipLock also provides similar behavior when your device is paired with a Bluetooth device; as soon as the device is out of range, it automatically locks.

If you have an Android phone or tablet, get SkipLock here.
