    Yeap you are right. But you can display the viewfinder and still do other tasks. But that's starting to get a bit farfetched for my taste.

    I would still prefer the voice command. Unlock screen with a swipe (someone that may be using this would have to consider not adding a password to lockscreen), long press home screen, talk.

    Nfc is readed when lockscreen is displayed, too.
    I like this idea - of using NFC tag to launch my app?
    Is it true that it will work - "Nfc is readed when lockscreen is displayed, too."
