This is one hell of a Cydia tweak. RecongizeMe is the first ever biometric security system which unlocks your iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G, iPad 2. How cool is that?
ReconginzeMe is developed by Apocolipse who previously developed the 3Dboard which gave the icons a 3D effect without the need of the 3D glasses.
This time Apocolipse has worked its magic again by bringing this amazing RecognizeMe biometric security to the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and the iPad 2 (If a jailbreak is ever released).
What is does is use the front-facing camera to check facial recognition, if it matches the one in its data base it opens your iPhone 4 and if it does not, it returns you back to the device unlock screen to enter your password. No need to panic if it does not open using the facial recognition as you still can use your PIN number to unlock.
