iPhone 5s fingerprint scanner uses

Strange question, but does the iPhone 5s fingerprint scanner have any other uses once the phone is unlocked? Like any fancy or interesting uses in other apps?

Well, you can authorize iTunes and Appstore purchases. When you jailbreak there are all sorts of tweaks that make use of the scanner - start apps, lock and unlock files etc...
I guess it'll be a while before Apple officially allows devs to use the scanner - to much talk of security issues these days.

Puchchasing apps and media from the iTunes store, that's about it at the moment. As Jan said, its functionality can be expanded via Jailbreak tweaks, but obviously that means JB'ing your phone.

Yeah... while we are at that: the Evasion jailbreak is very stable now. And updated and new tweaks and apps pop up by the hour...
