The developer of RecognizeMe tried and achieved many improvements to his application, and he made possible for RecognizeMe 2.0 to be used from all iDevices with a front camera. This means that now you will be able to either use a passcode to unlock your iDevice or let I RecognizeMe 2.0 to use your face as a biometric passcode.
