Thread: 'FaceHalt' Will Pause Videos You're Watching When You Look Away From Your iOS Device

    Default 'FaceHalt' Will Pause Videos You're Watching When You Look Away From Your iOS Device


    With a new jailbreak tweak dubbed FaceHalt by iOS developer Apocolipse, you can give your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad the ability to pause video playback whenever you look away from your iOS device. This tweak is perfect for when you get interrupted or distracted in the middle of a video and want to make sure you don’t miss any of it.

    The tweak harnesses the power of your front-facing camera to detect when your face is facing the direction of the screen. If your face cannot be detected, the video will pause. This feature will work in most video-playing applications. You can see the tweak in action via the demo video below:



    For a mobile-friendly video link that works with our app, tap on the video link below:

    FaceHalt can be enabled or disabled on demand from the preferences pane in the Settings application.

    The tweak is inspired from the Smart Pause feature of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, and is an interesting an innovative way of ensuring that you never miss a beat from the videos you watch. Luckily, this jailbreak tweak will bring this feature to the iOS device lineup, so that Apple device users don't have to miss out.

    If you want to give FaceHalt a try, you will find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just $1.99. FaceHalt works with the following devices running iOS 6.0 or later:


    • iPad 2
    • iPad with retina display (3rd and 4th generation)
    • iPad Mini
    • iPhone 4S
    • iPhone 5
    • iPod touch 5G


    Name: FaceHalt
    Price: $1.99
    Version: 1.0.2-1
    Requirements: iOS 6.0+, Device with A5 chip or newer
    Repo: BigBoss

    I just downloaded and used it in the YouTube app and it worked great. If you look away it pauses look back at the video it resumes. Not something I would used just thought Id try it out.

    imagine if you watch videos in the dark and the face recognition software can't find your face and keeps pausing the video.

    My friend has the S4 and she watches tons of youtube videos, but she does not use that pause function. I think it would get annoying after a while...

    You right just tried using it in the dark with horrible results and anything other then YouTube gave me a big hassle to watch anything.

    It works .5% of the time and on 1% of video apps. Don't waste your money

    Another hater who finds it necessary to join a forum for products they hate so they can whine about them.
    Why bother?

    And yeah, it's a gimmick on any phone.
