Hold Screen ON: Face detection

Hold Screen ON: Face detection


This application act as service and use front camera of your phone for face detection. When the face is detected, the application will prevent the locking of phone's screen. Just keep the screen on while you are looking on it.
By other words, this app works like a Samsung Galaxy S3 Smart Stay feature but can detects eyes too.

KEY FEATURES:

* Compatibility mode: can run on almost all android devices
* Run in background
* Face detection
* Eyes detection
* Do not runs when screen goes off
* Application binding: you can choose behaviour for individual application

PLEASE NOTE:

* When service or preview window is active, you can see a single dot (which can have different color and brightness) at the top right corner of the desktop, just behind the time. It is normal. It is a one and only possible one way to grab content from the camera of some android devices (like HTC One, Galaxy Nexus etc).

* If your front camera have low resolution or small viewing angle, try to use eyes detection instead of face detection.

* This application uses your phone's camera only during the face scanning. By default, it is 3 frame every 5 seconds. Between these intervals, you can run any other application which can lock and use the camera. Use application binding and App Launch Widget to run selected camera-dependent app.

Recent changes:
* Important changes: "Notifications" is gone from the options menu. The notification icon now will be always visible when the service is activated. This is due to a changes in Android policy (since 4.3) related to foreground services. If foreground service is running - it should display an icon.

* Main window UI was changed: now you can swipe views.

* Launching widget design was changed.

* Many medium and low-critical bugs was fixed.

Perfect!! Before this I used Smartstay EX and find it is much more inferior (most of the time cannot recognize my face) to Samsung Smart Stay which I used before I use custom rom for my S4. And finally I found this app! It works perfectly just like Samsung Smart Stay! Hats off to Developer. Keep up the great job!

Works great! Using it on my Motorola G2, worksn great and did not eat battery life any more than usual, which was surprising. For those who read the JW app a lot, this is a must have. Keeps your screen alive for all your reading needs.

So great. Really the only one that works for me on my Nexus 5. This is fantastic. That preview tab is so neat as well. Very good app. Well worth it.
