SmartStay Ex keeps your screen from turning off while you are using it.

Q: Does SmartStay Ex waste battery?
A: SmartStay Ex wastes very little battery, especially when vibration notifications are disabled.

SmartStay Ex user reviews:

You have to look directly into the camera for this to work. I rarely hold my phone/tablet that way. Maybe other people do… I think it would be better to have the app recognize slight movement. This should work unless you put your device on a table while reading, since your hands won’t be holding it perfectly steady.

I was having trouble figuring out how to get it to recognize my face. Contacted developer who responded promptly & had me try continuous scan. That got it to work, but only about 20% of the time with very good lighting. Gingerbread 2.3.4

Hi, A superb app. Though my phone is not listed in the working list, it works for sometime and then stops to scan. I am sure you will be able to rectify this.
