C1pruz, Feb 14, 2019 : Who are the users? Everybody who unlocks the phone through the fingerprint sensor, so potentially every user. What is the proposed function? It’s a new approach to implement shortcuts, that exploit the presence of the fingerprint sensor. It implements a selective fingerprint recognition, that unlocks the phone (if the pressure is fast) and opens an app or a service (shortcuts already offered by apps in the OnePlus Launcher) according to the finger used if the pressure is longer. They will not be the same for everyone, in fact these shortcuts will be customisable by the user in the phone settings (security section). What is the user value? This is a simple functionality that does not increase the complexity in the phone usage, but enable a faster access to the most used apps by the user. It could also improve the user experience of unskilled users, simplifying basic actions (for example one of their relatives can set one fingerprint to open the phone dialer and another one to open the sms app). If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? There are other kind of shortcuts but they’re not using the fingerprint sensor, so they are either more difficult to use or slower. This new approach will let the user choose the app directly from the lockscreen while he is unlocking is phone, offering a smoother experience.
