Face Unlock app created for iOS

0. phoneArena 10 Jan 2012, 11:28 posted on

This is why we love developers. Face Unlock is a cool feature on Android 4.0 (though it does have debatable value because of security flaws), and we don't have to wait for Apple to implement its own solution because...

Ok i say this once, third party developpers are not the same as apple's software developpers.

This is why i this was an Apple Ad " Although Face Unlock on Android is pretty gimmicky too, so maybe this app falls in line with what to expect right now. With luck, Apple's solution will be a bit more elegant than this"

WHy didnt the writer say, hopefully Android will work on it, to make it more elegant, or something like, let's hope with the new update, it'll be more elegant, why say "Apple's solution will be a bit more elegant than this"?

Just an example:

next article: Nokia got a (dunno) new software proggram

Someone says: I'm certain apple will sue them for this

Next article: Sony reveals PS4

Someone says: ah apple should sue them!!!

You are blind if you don't notice it.

Apple will take this app off the app store,rehash it as the 'new ground breaking feature' in the iphone 5 to try con ifans again and claim they are changing everything again again. Apple nuts will buy into the pr guff in droves and then attack android fans saying android never had or never will have something as revolutionary as siri....cough cough i mean face unlock

Well this is just an app that someone made, Apple didn't incorporate it into its OS, yet. That will be in the next iOS update I'm sure.

What's next, widgets?

Ok sure The_Miz. Apple will always copy but the original is STILL better meaning Android. Can we say Apple's half baked notification pull down? If the face unlock is anything like Apple's notification pull down on the iPhone then it's going to suck. lol

Ohh & ZING!

I agree with Miz... Siri is better than Google voice or whatever is called... Safari as a browser is a top browser that comes on any Apple device no need to download is already in the deviuce as in Android ( dolphin, firefox, etc).... have to dowloaded.... I can give you more but want you to digest those first....

C’mon Safari is weak, my Android ICS 4.0 browser on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus is faster than Safari even WITH FLASH running. Please get your facts right. Siri is a gimmick & just so you know Santa has been making the gift run on Christmas Eve for many, many years! He most certainly doesn’t use Siri.

I have never needed another browser ever. Just so you know those browsers are on the Apple AppStore so again get your facts right.

I can ALSO give you more but it looks like you need to digest your regurgitation there. lol

i doubt that your browser w/flash is faster than my iphone 4s.. and will only use 800 mhz.. how is that... and yes Santa has been making gift runs leaving many good kids witout x-mas.. but now thanks to Siri.. no kid left behind..lol...

lol That was funny, I will give you that. Santa only misses the kids on the naughty list NEVER the good kids. You & I know that. Siri must be malfunctioning if Santa is giving gifts to kids he is not supposed to. lol

gallitoking I have an iPhone 4S (which I didn’t buy, long story) & I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, trust me I know. With 4G on it's no contest but with 3G only the Samsung Galaxy Nexus wins hands down. Sorry but again you are wrong!

The only thing that's "better" about Siri is that it's centralized and has a gimmicky, fake personality. Google's voice actions work just fine.

Safari lacks flash, which is pretty damn important still. Android's default browser comes with Flash capability, no need to go into Android Market and download it.

Each OS has its strengths and weaknesses. To say that the iPhone is better at everything, though, would just be a total lie.

Sniggly..sniggly sniggly... you know what Siri told me when I asked if she was a gimmick? (using my foreign accent).. she said that she is not... ok... honestly everything is a gimmick,.. you are .. gallitoking... is... nohing wrong with that... it work for Charlie Sheen...

Safari sucks big time! It's cool as long as your device is new and aren't close to you 16, 32, or 64GB limit. But once you get too close, Safari and everything else force closes like you wouldn't believe.

Maybe I shouldn't say it sucks, because when it works...it works great! I'm just really frustrated that I can't just surf the web without a force close or switch tabs without the old page refreshing. It's not bad, it's just temperamental.

There was an app for android that came out about this time last year i suppose that wasn't in the market but you could google the apk and it was a facial unlock app. It worked really well and it was free. The name started with a V but I can't remember what it is now. I used it to lock my phone when at work. It worked by taking a picture of your face and scanned the image. After that anytime you turned on your phone the app would scan your face but you had to hold the camera in the same angle you took the picture otherwise it didn't recognize you.
