Review Hola Screen Lock

Brandon Girod
Intuitive interface, very simple to use
You must install the Hola launcher to use, the app is useless if you have no free space on your home screen
Hola Screen Lock for Android gives users a false impression that this is a full fledged lockscreen that can be used in conjunction with the separate Hola Launcher. Well, unfortunately it’s not. It’s an app that simply lets users turn off their display with a single gesture.
Perhaps the most perplexing thing about the app is why it needs to be downloaded separately from the launcher in the first place. You have to download the Hola Launcher to use it. If you don’t have the app then you’ll be prompted to download it every time you try and use it. It seems silly because the app is a feature and not standalone in any way.
Believe it or not, there is an actual options screen that lets you select enable two options: enabling quick screen lock and enabling auto cleanup. The first option is literally the app and lets you simply double-click on an empty part of your home screen to turn off your display and the second allows you to remove apps from memory when you use the app. Additionally, you can choose to whitelist some apps from being turned off.
Hola Screen Lock seems like it should be a feature built into the launcher because it enables you to perform exactly one action that doesn’t need to be a separate app. I also find it to be somewhat useless because while it’s quicker to turn off your display if you happen to be on your home screen, it’s slower if you’re not. And 9 times out of 10 I’m not.
