ISeeYou Lite keeps the screen on while you’re looking at your Android phone, just like the Galaxy SIII [Freeware]


One of the great things about an open development platform like Android is the free reign it gives independent developers to let rip with their skills and imagination. No sooner is a cool new feature announced from a major player like HTC or Samsung, than you’ll find coders across the world trying to deliver the same utility for other phone users on the platform.

Take the latest greatest Smart Stay feature on the mega-handset the Samsung SIII, which keeps your phone screen awake as long as you’re looking at it (using the front camera). It’s very slick, and something that is genuinely useful. Well fear not other Android users, you now have the same tech available to you, as long as you have a front camera which is good enough to recognise a face.

ISeeYou Lite is a free app which keeps your phone screen alive as long as you are looking at it. Put the phone down, and the screen will go to sleep to conserve power as normal. After a few early version glitches, the software works well now, with almost no lag on startup. It’s a great tool for keeping your screen alive while you’re reading emails or browsing, so much so that we suspect it will soon be a standard feature on all smartphones.
