The amazing new advertisements and the tag lines that Samsung has thought for its new Galxy S3 super Android device is very eye catching and shows some really mouth watering features. The one such feature that it shows off is where the user commands the Galaxy to play the next song and automatically recognizing the command the song is changed. Or for that matter capability of running till you are awake better known as the SmartStay capability.
Most people have already given this device the tag of the best Android device ever and they are probably led by the promotion that Samsung has packed with the device. But guys – on talking to some of the Android nerds we have concluded that though the devi ce is definitely packing some awesome hardware but the software features (of which the smartstay functionality is one) are nothing new atleast for those who have been experimenting and developing with the Android ICS platform.
Today we are going to talk about porting the same smartstay functionality for the Android device on any Android phone that is running the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) or the Android 4.0 operating system, and infact there is no need to tweak your phone in any way for that. This is what you have to do just 4 simple and small steps.
- Go to the Android market and search for the app “IseeYou“
- Install the app on your Ics device and
- You are good to go now
- Run the app and select ‘Keep runing in background’ option
The functionality is a pretty handy one especislly if are an Android lover like me and like to fiddle around with your phone especially in at nights before going to sleep like reading ebooks, listening to musinc etc. Etc. ISeeYou brings the Smart Stay feature to any device rocking Ice Cream Sandwich and sporting a front facing camera, Sporting a simple interface, and even simple-sounding purpose, the app has the capacity to utilize the facial recognition feature to keep the screen awake for as long as you’re staring at it.
The app is pretty simple to use and sports only a single home screen which does not ned lengthy explanations.
You can launch the app directly upon system reboot and keep it running in the background. There are two variants of teh app available in the Google Play store the paid version of teh app is avaiable at a price of $0.63. The paid version does come with as little more functionality than the free version of the app herein you can tweak the settings to suit our needs as well.
