Po Poslední aktualizaci Aplikace Locus Pro nepotlačuje softwarový zámek obrazovky.


Zdravím, systém byl změněn kvůli problémům na různých zařízeních a nyní funguje tak jak je oficiálně povoleno na všech Android zařízeních a jak je i uvedeno v popisu této funkce - tedy pouze na NEzabezpečený zámek, tedy jen "slide to unlock". Díky za pochopení.


The new icon set doesn't match symbols of the old. I used to have a kayak for kayaking which now is an rowing boat. Not wrong with this boat also but I think it symbols something else then the old symbol set.


Good day Johan, I'm sorry, it is possible. I was checking combination of all icons, if they are close to what they were before and if I remember, I decided that kayak and boat are close enough :).

There are now three icons close to "water" so feel free to pick manually icon you like from new pack.
