I'm a big fan of keeping my device locked, but I prefer a much quicker way to access it over the standard lock button or password lock -- for this I love PatternLock. PatternLock, the third party device locking app for BlackBerry, has finally been updated for BlackBerry 7 touchscreen devices. The app lets you set a simple pattern on your device that allows you to easily secure your BlackBerry while giving you quick access via the touchscreen.
