LookAway Player's interface does what it needs to (pictures)

This eye-tracking iOS app has a decent interface, but it doesn't do much beyond its main feature.

Eye see you!

When viewing a video, you'll notice an eye icon in the upper right that tells you the app recognizes that you are actively watching.

Check the settings

In the settings you can turn off Vision Control (though I'm not sure why you would), and you can use sensitivity sliders for both the look-away and muting gestures.

LookAway works as advertised

The app was pretty reliable about pausing whenever I looked away, but there's not much more to it than that.
