Android Lollipop has been around for users for a few days, and if your device still hasn’t received an update, we know exactly how you feel. Check and read the new features of Lollipop until you get the update. Pinching screens is a very little replicated new feature in Lollipop, and not much has been said about it, but it’s really useful, especially if you have an Android tablet instead of a phone. Pin screens allow you to “pin” the app to the screen, and no intentional swipe or button press will allow the app to exist unless you remove it first. If you’ve enabled a PIN or password on your device, you can set it to require a password to unlock the app.

Enable mounting

You can’t just pin an app from a bat once you’ve upgraded to Lollipop. Go to Settings> Security and look for Screen Capture. Tap it and tap the switch to enable the mount. You will also see instructions for attaching and opening the application.

activate the application PIN

Attach and detach applications

Launch the app you want to pin, or if it’s already running, show it once to make it the last active app you use. Press the “Preview”, ie the Multitasking button and display the application. You will see a floating pin button in the lower right corner of the app preview. Tap it and confirm that you want to pin the app.

attach the application

If your device has an activated passcode or PIN, you can activate its entry to open the application. To disconnect the application, press and hold the multifunction key until “Display disconnected” is displayed.

PIN display access code

A reasonable warning to anyone who thinks this is a great way to show someone a photo on your phone and you don’t have to worry about him or her swiping left or right over other photos. this feature attaches the app (even if the feature mentions a screen name) so you can navigate in any app, the screen actually changes, but only within that app. This means that if you open a photo on your phone and pin the photo screen, you can still swipe right or left to see the next and / or previous one. Proceed with caution.
