Anyway, Apple people - What are the choices for iPhone users?
So far I've only found one that requires JB - There must be something else available for standard iPhones?

A question again about Lockwatch?

I have installed it. I haven't been asked for any payment...NOR have I been asked for a passcode?

(And you will guess I am a bit panicky now...don't want to close phone down...and then find I can't get into it...Any help please?)

NB I did say this may happen. If I do something technical and it doesn't follow what I have been told...then I get stuck

You set your lockscreen in Menu >Settings >Security >Lock screen.
Choose PIN and it will ask you to enter a min 4 digit pin and the confirm it.
Next time you lock phone it will ask for the pin to unlock it - It is only when this pin is entered incorrectly 4 times that it then sends an email to the address that you have specified in the app settings.
Payment is only required for the premium version that has a few extra features - You can use the free version if you're happy with it as is or upgrade it at any time.

Pre-empting any questions...

Went into phone opened up Playstore...searched for app...read all about it and clicked install button..

It just installed...it is now sitting on my home screen...but no questions asked.

I presume I installed the free version...but would have thought I should have been asked for a lock code

Yes, it will just sit there doing nothing unless you set a lock screen pin or pattern....
