FAQ

Q: Does SmartStay Ex waste battery?
A: SmartStay Ex wastes very little battery, especially when vibration notifications are disabled.

Q: Does SmartStay Ex only work if it recognises my own face?
A: SmartStay Ex does not recognise faces, it just detects them, so it will work with any face.

Q: Do camera apps work when SmartStay Ex is enabled?
A: Yes, but occasionally there could be a few second delay if SmartStay Ex is scanning.

Q: Why is continuous mode only available on Android 4.0 ICS devices?
A: Continuous mode (or live face detection) is a feature that was added in Android 4.0 and is not available in previous versions.

Q: Why does SmartStay Ex scan even if the screen is not about to turn off?
A: It is not possible for an app to detect when the screen is about to turn off so SmartStay Ex must check regularly whether a face is visible.

Not very pleased with purchase. App crashes randomly. mm-qcamera-deamon process is probably triggered by app causing battery drain.

Uninstall I was happy with this app but uninstalled after discovering this app is triggering my front camera when the screen is OFF… I understand privacy could be an issue with an app like this but this is extremely intrusive! Removed from 2 devices, not happy I paid.

Better then expected I was afraid this app would be a battery hog, to my surprise it draws less battery then Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. This is the only thing I miss about my s3. Paid
