an app for that, finger swipe to unlock phone

Does anyone know the name of the app for myTouch, that lets you swipe a pattern with your finger to unlock the phone? I had it on the phone, but had to reboot and lost all of my apps. (Thankfully all were free) Thank you!

Best answer: Are you referring to the built in security lock screen?

Hit menu > settings > location & security settings > setup screen lock
(I'm running 2.2 so it may be slightly different)

Yeah, that's not an app.

FYI, if you ever lose an app, you can always download it again and not pay for it the second time, as long as you use the same iTunes account.

sorry, when you said MyTouch, I thought you meant iPod touch. Disregard my comment.

Just a note about Android phones: They don't bother to tell you that there is no built-in app or data backup other than your Google contacts sync, until it's too late and you've lost everything and you think "why the hell doesn't this automatically back up!" A lady at the Verizon store recommended My Backup Pro - it's about $5 but well worth it. Backs up everything online and to SD card.

+1 for My Backup Pro.
