SmartStay 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!
Features - Supports Android 2.3+ - Customizable check frequency - SmartTimeout™ - Only scan when screen is about to turn off - [PRO] Optional status bar notifications - [PRO] Optional customizable vibration notifications - [PRO] Continuous mode - scan for a few seconds rather than taking a single picture - [PRO] Low light mode - [PRO] Exception list - don't scan in chosen apps (e.g. app that lags while scanning)
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.
