    I saw an app featured on Redmond Pie website. It's called FaceVault, and it is no available in the App Store for 99 cents. It allows you to use facial recognition to unlock your phone. The one setback is that as far as I can tell, you basically have to activate it manually each time before you lock your decvice. Seems pretty cool though.

    I tried the face unlock feature on my Nexus 7 and I wasn't impressed, it also had a pattern unlock if it can't recognize your face.

    I don't think it's for unlocking your photo directly. It unlocks the private photo albums you can create with the app. ImageUploadedByiCafe1349039930.702145.jpg

    what app did you use to circle that part in red? I think it's a jailbreak app that I've seen before, but can't locate it.
