While Apple is working closely with the company Nuance Communications, which will allow the voice recognition system to reach a new level in a new Mac OS X Lion, the creators of tweaks to Cydia offer a completely different way of working of iOS with the human body. New application RecognizeMe supplements conventional interlock system of the device with the identification of its owner by his face using the password.
Once the unique to the third-party boot software hits the iPhone or iPad 2, there an additional menu setting appears. Here you can set a new unlock method of the gadget as default, just photo yourself several times, so the program remembers your face and you can safely start using. If you are not afraid, of course.
And there is a reason to be afraid of. The Engadget resource among the first tested RecognizeMe, they even jailbroke their iPhones for it. To everyone’s surprise, the program was workable and really functioned as it is written in its description. But after several attempts, it turned out that the application is yet to be seriously finished, as it sometimes allows you to unlock the device by the face of a stranger. In short, the in famous identification of a person works is still very sloppy.
If you, dear fans of all new, have already set your sights on an interesting tweak, do not worry with it will be possible to use an ordinary digital code and wait until its creator deign to renew his creation. It is also known how RecognizeMe will react to the photo owner of the iPhone. It would be very unpleasant, that to get an access to personal information you will need your picture only.
