It’s time to add another step to the “slide to unlock” screen by adding facial recognition. A company named “Apocolipse” has launched an application named “RecognizeMe” which works parallel to iPhone passcode screen. Therefore it serves as an alternate to, rather than a replacement for the passcode. It will scan you face at unlocking time and varify it with saved samples in order to decide if you are the real owner of iPhone.
The application is available at “App Store” with name “Recognize Me” at $0.99. However, if you want to test the same application for free then download it from “Cydia”.
