When it comes to apps and tweaks, we get the access to test and install them in our iDevices. We have the luxury to download the apps from the Cydia Store.
There are plenty of rooms for apps and tweaks on super charge gigabytes size of memory, and one of them is the RecognizeMe tweak which has been available for jailbroken devices. It gives us a taste of the facial recognition feature. Above all, Android gets the hits when it comes to this biometric recognition, having the rights over iOS devices.
It wasn?t easy for this lad, after the multiple App Store rejections, FaceVault app developer Robert Neagu finally made it on the scene. His FaceVault app has been approved by Apple, and now it is made available for sale on iOS App Store.
FaceVault app is a version of Android?s Ice Cream Sandwich feature called Face Unlock. Apple doesn?t want its developers to take control of the lock screen. This app works slightly in a way that just like the Face Unlock in Android, in its simplest form it allows you to import photos into the new albums hosted within the app and provides protection using a biometric security through facial recognition.
FaceVault app post installation requires users to follow through a setup process which will train the device to recognize your facial characteristics.
That?s not all! The FaceVault app in the smartest way has a contingency method in case it fails on the detection process. You will draw an unlock pattern for you to access the app and photos.
Behind FaceVault app, Face.com powers the app for the facial recognition system. This means, if you want the trained facial image to be uploaded to the server, your device must have an active connection via the internet.
FaceVault?s user interface is easy to navigate, proving it is worth using to protect your device. In case you?re in low-light places, it has the contingency method onto pattern recognition, and the ability to create unlimited albums with photos you can import from your device?s Camera Roll.
What?s awesome about FaceVault ? if someone tries to access the app through the facial recognition system, (stranger or anyone) it will take an image of that person. Amazing, isn?t it?
You can download FaceVault from the App Store for a dollar, and it is compatible with iOS 5 + firmware version.
