DescriptionSmartStay Ex keeps your screen from turning off while you are using it.
SmartStay Ex scans the front camera for faces at regular intervals. If a face is found, it will keep the screen from turning off. There are many advanced options available and many more planned!

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.
