Locks by Breakout EDU
By James Sanders
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
LOCKS is the companion app for Breakout EDU.
Use LOCKS to create digital locks that can be used with Breakout EDU games.
You can create a number, text, color, shape, and directional locks.
You can also run these locks with a countdown timer.
Any locks you create can be saved for use again and again.
The app contains several preloaded puzzles for some of the most popular Breakout EDU games.

- Database backups
- Bug fixes
- Added secure connection for school access
The first issue I have is that it doesn't allow you to use multiple locks. You can only use one lock at a time. So unless you use multiple devices and share the app or purchase it each time, it's not really worth purchasing.
Next issue is the URL doesn't work in the reveal. I have tried multiple URLs and none of them will load. That defeats putting it as the reveal.
I found that I had to use backup locks, QR codes, etc. to make certain the game progressed. I still absolutely love BEDU but this app for what it offers should be free.
This is an amazing app that can be used with any escape room. It provides a number of reusable locks that are totally customizable. When a lock is unlocked you can. To an image text or a URL. This is a great inexpensive lock option for those with iPad! Highly recommended!
Love, but want one change
This app prevents any frustrations with wrong lock combinations, missing letters, or other mechanical malfunctions of traditional locks in a breakout, but I would LOVE the ability to reset the lock once it is solved without having to enter the facilitator password.
