The crabby tabby Garfield now has his own Lock Screen App!
IconLogin Limited in association with Bare Tree Media and Paws Inc are delighted to announce the release of a Garfield branded Lock Screen App based on the IconLogin mobile platform.
This picture password based Android app uses Garfield and other characters that feature in his storylines, including Jon – his owner, Odie – a dog that is the butt of his brutality, and lots of lasagna.
The IconLogin app platform is more secure than traditional keypads since the characters appear in a different order each time, instead of a static layout like almost all other keypads.
When initially downloaded, a free keypad of 12 Garfield characters is presented, allowing the user to choose their own Picture Password sequence based on four of the picture buttons. Each time the phone wakes up the user’s Android device the same 12 Garfield based picture buttons appear on the keypad, but in a randomised order. When the correct four characters are chosen in the same order the device is unlocked. Users have the option to purchase additional premium Garfield themed lock screens as well.
The App is available from the Google Play Store by searching “Garfield Lock Screen” or by using the link here.
“The Garfield Lock Screen is fun to use and perfect for offering ongoing content releases to generate new revenue opportunities for the Garfield brand,” says Bob Ferrari, CEO at Bare Tree Media and the master digital licensee for Garfield. “Now Odie’s phone is safe from Garfield snooping around”, says Jim Davis, The creator of Garfield.
“We are delighted that Bare Tree Media and Paws Inc have allowed us to incorporate Garfield characters in this innovative App. It will allow us to support their storylines by producing regular keypads for fans to stay up to date as well as keeping their devices secure,” says Schehrezade Davidson of IconLogin®.
