Fingerprints unlocking as a security system is really fun. At least to me. Most android phones being manufactured off-late by top brands tend to have this functionality.
If you have always wished to be able to unlock your android phone using the fingerprint system but do not want to spend more bucks on some expensive phones, an android app can help you. Although not the exact experience but something almost similar.
This particular app allows you unlock some apps on your phone using your rare camera as the sensor. So far so good, I haven’t been able to devise being able to use the fingerprint unlocking system as the default unlocking system on an android phone (still experimenting). However, I have been able to use it in unlocking some apps which I selected from the app settings and so far so good, experience has been okay.
Although the app and the functionality seems quite awesome considering the fact that it uses your android phone’s rare camera as a fingerprint sensor, the unlocking speed isn’t really fast compared to android phones with packed fingerprint unlocking sensor.
Placing your finger very close to the camera view in other for the reading to be done and for the unlocking to be successful takes about 3 to 5 secs. If this isn’t an issue to you, you are open to trying the app out.
The app comes in two versions. A free version and a paid one. Although the free version comes with the basic needs, I think the pro version is basically aimed at supporting the developer which I really think its worth it.
Can This Fingerprint Unlocking App Work On All Android Phones?
I think YES. At least for devices running on android kitkat upwards, it works pretty fine. All you need do is download the app, follow the on-instructions to configuring the fingerprint process and you are good to go.
You can download the app HERE and it is developed by SUXD.
