    Don't get me wrong, I don't text and drive. But I do use Slacker and the stupid app doesn't have lockscreen controls. My phone is PIN protected and I need to keep it that way. I know the steps to take to keep the screen active/remove the PIN, but obviously that wouldn't be convenient to go through every time I get in my car (and to reverse it when I get out). So... Is there an app somewhere that will let me have a quick toggle to change from a "I'm in my car, don't lock or turn off" profile and then back to "normal/secure mode" when I'm done? Thanks.

    How about a Car Dock app?

    You can try a "Screen On" app. What it does is list all of your apps and you can check off which apps you don't want to time out. (You don't have to turn off your screen time out to use this app.) I have been using it for years and love it. I use it for certain apps that I need the screen to always stay on.
