What is Photo Time Lock?
Using a secure, timer-locking feature, this app is the instinctive, intuitive, desired, and repeatable ability of an individual to voluntarily lock up anything (via photos contain combination of a lock), for any amount of time he or she selects, from 1 minutes to 365 days; items that are damaging to her health, or a threat to his very life.
Gambling: An individual who knows that he has a gambling problem places all the “tools” of gambling (e.g. cash, checkbooks, credit cards, etc.) in a combination lockable container, scramble the combination and took a picture of the code via this app, and set a timer to lock this picture for 48 hours. Then he knows he will be out of gambling in the following two days.
Beer: A beer drinker buys a case of beer, 24 cans. At home, he puts 3 beers on the top shelf of the refrigerator and 21 in a combination lockable container. He locks the container and put it on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. He takes a picture of the randomly scramble combination via this app, and sets the timer-lock for 24 hours. Later in the day, could he go out and buy more beer? Yes, but a high percentage of individuals do not. Try it for yourself.
SECURE: The time of this app is verified via remote NTP server, thus tampering system time on the device will have absolutely no effect.
KEYHOLDER UNLOCK: a keyholder who has the passcode can unlock any individual photo anytime even the countdown timer has not been reached zero.
FLEXIBILITY: The lock time can be set from 1 minute to 365 days, in a minute interval.
