...to feel better with your Windows Mobile phone.
a much better.

BIO.ID. is a program for Windows Mobile phones.
It displays user identification gate, eye iris, fingerprint, or voice,
when the new text message arrives.

In other words, it is a new text message notification alert.
It replaces the default system notification
with much better effects. Plus, a few new functions.

Because Windows Mobile phones have not build-in identification sensors,
at least for now, in 2008, this is only simulation, only a fake.
But it allows you to feel much better, and in some situation to really wow your friend.
...or some accidental observer.

BIO.ID. in real action:

BIO.ID. works in this way:

your Windows Mobile phone
gets the new text message

alert fullscreen displays
and voice announces
"you've got message..."

this repeats every 3 minutes
till you'll touch your phone

animation plays, now press any button or quickly touch screen,
and you hear "please look at the scanner..."
it's a good moment already
to move your phone to your eye

press button or touch screen one time again,
and you'll hear "your identification is acceptable"

a few seconds later,
you can read and use
your Inbox in normal way


This is a simulation of a forthcoming biometric solution offered by HumanScan AG www.bioid.com


BIO.ID. functions and features:

  • 3 themes: eye iris scanner, fingerprint scanner, voice reconizing
  • 2 voices: woman, man, to announce messages, or short vibrating without announces
  • "You've got message..." repeats after a minute, then every 3 minutes, up to 10 times (to save battery)
  • auto-deleting every message marked as Read in Inbox, or when you open some message to read
  • delays of deleting: 15 seconds, minute, 15 minutes, one hour, or on the next morning
  • modes of deleting: move to Deleted Items folder, or delete completely

    While BIO.ID. interface displays on screen:

  • first pressing of any button, or quick touching the screen: start to scan
  • next one pressing or touching: finish, turn off BIO.ID. interface, and open Inbox
  • additional possibility of user action: to omit the scanning mode: quick move on the screen up and down a little,
    or quick press up and down navigate buttons: it will bring the Inbox faster without voices

    When you use so called: Profiles, or change sound volume down,
    BIO.ID. will not play alerts, when you use Silent Profile, or vibrating, or volume set to zero. In opposite it will try to vibrate shortly, if you set any BIO.ID. voice to use.

    Additionally, it's recommended to turn-off default notification about New text message.
    Open the Start\Settings\Sounds dialog, select the New text message, and set sound to none, and nothing displays on screen.

    There is one trick, for advanced users.
    If you want to add some alert sound prior to voice notification, put any .wav file in the installed directory of this program.
    BIO.ID. will search the directory for the first sound file at the beginning.
    For test purposes, you can download and use:
    alien_alert.wav (very long)


    BIO.ID. using:
    To start or stop this program, click the icon on Start menu, or Programs screen.
    To activate BIO.ID. check Enable notification box. To turn off, open this dialog again and uncheck this box.


    BIO.ID. other screenshots:
    This programs works on any screen size and orientation, both in Windows Mobile Professional (PPC) and Standard (Smartphone).
    You can read the name of the last Sender of message, and the time, before you decide "to start scanning".
    If you don't want to read message(s) at this moment, just leave your phone. The next upcoming message will start all from the beginning.
