since i couldn't find a way to send feedback, i'll say it here. perhaps you can add touch id for the app? imagine some kids open the app and alter or delete something from the database.

excellent app.

Thank you LaBoheme for your feedback, we will definitely take that into consideration. May I ask how you heard about our app?

i believe i read about it here.
some more suggestions: the database should be browsable and editable. suppose i save some faces as person 1, person 2 and person 3, maybe i am in a hurry, or i just don't know their names. right now, it's not possible to go back and make the proper entries later. same about objects. say i'm in a hurry and i just name something generic, i might not even remember how i name the object, a searchable and browsable database would be helpful.

Hello,
I have joined the beta for this app. The problem I am having is that when I open the app the volume of my iPhone 7plus goes so low that I cannot use the app. I also am unable to find any instructions on how to use it.

Hi,
I'm still exploring the app. I had the same problem with the volume level of the voice the app was using when I first opened the app. I turned up the master volume of my phone until it was loud enough for me. I like the voice prompts and gestures to set up the assistant and using the app!
Thanks,
JoAnn

Hi Greg,
We tried to make our app as intuitive but I can understand it would be hard to use without instructions. Could you maybe send a quick email at eyesense@id-labs.org and we will try to provide you with a brief instruction.

still can't import photos, even the app asks for permission. hopefully, this gets enabled soon, it'd make life easier in terms of building database for human faces.
