Hi. Does anyone know of any way to access any of the apps on and iPhone which has a password to lock the screen? We have an emergency SOS tracking app with a touch panic button but when the screen is password locked, and under duress, a user may not be able to activate the panic button. Ideally I’d like a Bluetooth device tethered to the iPhone which when pressed would automatically activate the panic app.
Thanks

Not without jailbreaking. There is a jailbreak right around the corner if you're interested in doing that. You have a couple options. There are alternate passcode locks (Android LockXT or Stride) that allow you to connect dots or draw a pattern instead of inputting numbers. This makes unlocking the device faster and easier. Another option is to use an app (CleverPin or AutoProtect) that disables the passcode while you're on your home WiFi. Of course, it won't help you when you're not home, but I think it's still worth mentioning.

Thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate your input. HAGW, Colin.
