    Honestly I think having this option on everyday use devices is overkill. I would never use it and personally think its a waste of time and space on my phone. Now for government issued devices or high security company devices I can see it's legitimacy....but out here in the real world no one will care.

    Gimmick? Depends on how they use it. If it's just for locking the phone instead of a passcode. Then yes. It'll probably be used as much as Face Unlock is used now on Android. If the 5S has NFC and they utilize passbook. Then no. It'll be the start of the mobile payment system. Apple has failed to get PassBook off the ground other than Travel. Now, if they allow you to put your CC and Bank Cards on it. Requiring you to use your fingerprint to unlock the card it will be useful and people will use it.

    I didn't think about that aspect and agree with you....if I had something on my phone worth securing like that then I'd use it.....as is...I have no use.

    I don't think that I would use it, even if they made it so that I could put my credit card on it... I would not put my credit card on my phone, so it would not matter for me. At least, that is the way I feel right now and maybe I will change my mind on that in the future. At the moment though, I don't trust that information on my phone. Though, I admit that probably it's the same things as people who don't trust using their CC's on a computer and that I will do.

    Speaking of security, can anyone recommend a good password keeper app for 'Droid? Preferably free?

    Any of these two are good.

    I've used the first one. I never had hassles, so I can't tell you about efficiency.
