    Wouldn't it be awesome if someone made an App so that the Slide to Unlock screen could change to a fingerprint scanner.

    the touchscreen has no actual way to "see" it only detects touch

    srry if i didnt work that great, basically to scan a fingerprint a device would need to either see the finger or have some type of very sensitve detection that can feel the ridges of a finger print.

    the touch has neither

    theres a webapp that when you touch your fonger to a circle on the screen it pretends to scan your finger, then you must remove your finger but hold it just above the screen so it still looks like its scanning, then it will pretend to scan and if you held your finger on the screen (like a friend who doesnt know the trick would do) it saiys access denied and if you removed it then it says access granted.

    lets make it a native app

    i dont think the screen is sensitive enough, from my understanding it senses larger areas(fingers) and wouldnt pick up a fingerprint
