The Galaxy S III is a true flagship phone in every sense – right from its hardware to its software. Samsung has not only equipped the Galaxy S III with killer hardware, it has also managed to add some unique software tweaks to it. One such feature introduced by Samsung in the Galaxy S III is Smart Stay.
Using the front camera, Smart Stay makes sure that the phone’s screen does not turn off if the user is in front of the phone reading or viewing something. Useful right? While owners of many Android handsets expected that Smart Stay will soon be ported to their phone, it is technically not possible since the feature depends on TouchWIZ’s framework.
Thankfully, a new application – ISeeYou – from developer, Marco Roccagli, brings Samsung’s Smart Stay feature to all Android devices with a front camera. Like Smart Stay, the application will make sure that your phone’s screen does not turn off if you are in front of the phone reading an article.
The lite version of the app is pretty basic, with no options to customize the face scan interval. The pro version of the app, which is pretty cheap (INR 35), comes with a couple of needed options like after how many seconds should the app scan for the user’s face and the maximum scan time.
Keep in mind that since the app uses the front-camera for scanning your face after every x seconds, it will have a negative impact on your phone’s battery life. Download the Lite version of the app from here or support the developer by purchasing the Pro version.
