Doesn't function properly. So I was stating right at the screen not to far away not to close not to much light nor to little, and it shows that I wasn't looking at the screen. Maybe its just and evo 4g lte problem? Not sure but it doesn't work at all. Kinda a shame I was looking forward too this app. Update: for some reason if I turn debugging mode on it works like a charm. Please fix.
Still in its early stages I'm not sure how well the smart stay on the galaxy s3 works, but sometimes when I'm looking straight at my phone it doesn't recognize that im looking at it. I has some potential, but as of now it needs a little work.
It works, but it force closes The app works reasonably well in portrait mode, but not in landscape. As you would expect, it doesn't work in low light conditions. The biggest flaw, however, is that it silently force closes every day or two. Bottom line, it doesn't eliminate the stress and habit of having to tap the screen to keep it on.
Did not work for me My HOX is on the developers list as "working", but after adjusting the viewing angle, lighting conditions and tinkering with the settings, it failed to work. Great idea, though.
Does not work Tried Smart Stay Lite ex, same results. Galaxy S3, custom ROM, AOKP JB 4.2.2 App status bar icon blinks once, and then screen never turns off. Even when placed face down on a flat surface, after two minutes, I peek under the phone, screen still at full brightness. Reason for trying this app was that I lost the stock ROM Smart Stay function, was hoping to get that function back with this app. But it's simply not the case. If it's any help, the LOGCAT shows that this app is trying to take a picture, but it's getting java errors: W/System.err( 2098): java.io.IOException: setPreviewTexture failed W/System.err( 2098): at android.hardware.Camera.setPreviewTexture(Native Method) W/System.err( 2098): at com.elnware.smartStay10.o.run(Unknown Source) W/System.err( 2098): at android.os.Handler.handleCallback(Handler.java:725) W/System.err( 2098): at android.os.Handler.dispatchMessage(Handler.java:92) W/System.err( 2098): at android.os.Looper.loop(Looper.java:137) <snip> I can provide full logcat if requested.
Works It does what it says but eyes with glasses confuses it. May be the light reflection on the glass prevents it from detecting the eyes and the angles!
Fix with front camera not detected.
