New app gives Android smartphone Apple iPhone 5S-like finger-scanning unlock feature.
The ICE Unlock Fingerprint Secure adds camera-powered fingerprint scanning to Android's lock screen and instead of real-time sensors; it relies on matching images of the finger to unlock the phone.
According to Cnet, the free app initially 'enrolls' a person's fingerprint by taking two photos of a finger and every time one needs to unlock the phone, they need to place the finger exactly the same way within an onscreen oval, and wait for the app to match it with the 'enrolled' finger print.
Since it is an app and not a 'sensor,' it is a little frustrating to get 'enrolled' in the scanning and successfully unlocking in first attempt.
However, there is also a traditional PIN-based backup in case a user is simple unable to provide the exact match for the enrolled print. ( ANI )
