Thanks Vignesh for posting my app at Product Hunt. If you would like to know the story behind the app. Here it is. One of my friend lost his mobile twice to pick-pockets while traveling in the metro trains. Being an app developer, I thought of helping him out through an app. Then I created this app called Pocket Sense which uses mobile’s proximity sensor to detect whether it is in user’s pocket or not. It works as follows: 1. You need to download the app from Google Play Store at Pocket Sense - Android Apps on Google Play 2. Set a delay time for the alarm to 5/10/15 seconds. 3. Enable Pocket Sense Mode in the app before keeping it in your pocket while travelling in a public transport or passing through a crowded place where you believe the pick-pockets would steal your mobile. 4. If you take out the mobile and unlock its lock screen within the delay time, nothing will happen. 5. If someone else takes the mobile out of your pocket and didn’t unlock the mobile within the delay time (which they couldn’t do), the app will start ringing the alarm! Hope you like my app. If you come across any feedback, please let me know i comments.

Great stuff ! Is there any method or tweak where the owner of the user picks up the phone and the siren goes off , it's pretty annoying when the owner picks and the siren goes on. Thanks 😊
