The adoption of the fingerprint sensor on smartphones is huge among phone makers, but app support hasn’t quite matched that growth. While a few apps have support using your fingerprint for authentication, it’s still an an uncommon trick.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner claims to be a faster and easier take on biometric identification, and South Korean Kookmin Bank has announced that it will soon support the iris scanner in its mobile banking app.
Seeing support grow for the iris scanner is great, as those who use it can use it in more places. Unless those places are outdoors, as many have trouble with the scanner in the sunlight.
