Take the measurement of height, distance and width using your camera's lens.

Make it a translator, when you are on foreign social.

Point your phone’s video camera at any printed material such as a road sign. The app replaces the words in the live picture on your screen with its English translation. It covers major languages including French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. The Android and Windows versions even work without an Internet connection.

This is a free feature in the Google Translate app for Android and iPhone.

Allow you to create a high-security password.

Instead of using a simple four-digit code to unlock your phone, you can create a more complex password with a mix of letters, numbers and special characters. To utilize this feature on iPhone go to the Settings menu, tap Touch ID and Passcode (or just Passcode on older phones), then Turn Passcode On. Turn off the switch that reads “Simple Passcode.”

Check whether your remote's batteries are dead when it stops working.

Your smartphone's camera is indeed sensitive to IR radiation, and if you want to try it for yourself, just use a common IR remote control. The infrared beam emitted when a button is pressed will show as white or purple light in the viewfinder of your camera app. You can use this trick to check if a remote control's batteries are dead when it stops working.

Simply scan and digitize your old negatives.
