Welcome Switzerland!, thanks for buying my watch app, hope you enjoy it. Like I’ve said before, it really works well from bed. But the true MAGIC is when you use it with the cloud, you can do anything from anywhere with a 42mm watch!
Also Croatia is getting a blue pin!
Thank you U.K. keeping a strong 5th place.
And Saudi Arabia, starting to see you regularly.
. . . and the U.S.A. with 60% more downloads!*
(* whatever the hell that number means, hint:2). Funny, I thought the Echo Dot was the top purchased item, now it’s the echo, hmmmm percentages and wavering reports, interesting.
Getting paid, and being able to brag? That is illegal some how I think. You should have to quit and then get hired back and sell your findings to them then.
Microsoft is making a thermostat? Woo hoo hoo! That’s scary! We have a Ford Escape with SYNC, 90% of the time it can’t see the bluetooth on my phone to play music, even though the phone can see SYNC. But after four years I finally found the “work around” (a Microsoft term) If I try and use Siri, it tries to make a call when I hold down the button, which also makes it miss the first half of the voice command, so you have to wait an extra 6 seconds before you can start speaking. Then it finally see’s the phone, but since it screws with voice commands . . . system settings / remove phone / Frank’s iPhone. That reminds me I need to find my headphone jack cable so I can listen to music in that car.
I also have some more apps I will be releasing in the next couple of weeks. The apps out there already, pretty much do it all, but I will release a couple that make it easier to operate without so much concentration. Apps that you would use on your night stand when you are half a sleep, or entering a room where you can quickly turn on the lights without aiming for a certain spot on the screen.
Now these won’t be free, sorry, if you want free you will have to download the apps that do it all, OH DARN!
The entire screen will be one button, you could use this to replace light switches on the wall if you have some old devices laying around.
You could also use it on your night stand for your bedroom light and a fan.
The main screen is just one button so you don’t accidentally click on the wrong button, then once you click on that button a second button can appear (you can configure this to happen or not happen) this would also be good for a wall switch so you could reach around without looking and tap the on button.
If you used it for a bathroom wall switch you could use the second button as a fan button. I also allow you to configure a timer to the fan button so that if you click the turn off light button the fan will remain on for the timer length you configure or you can turn off the fan and then the light, or you can leave the timer length set to 0 and both will turn off instantly when you click the lights off button.
You can have two buttons or not, and can set a fan timer or not, it also supports relay’s configured as always on.
I am also going to give the option to remove the configuration menu once it is configured. Because that will be the first thing anyone under the age of 5 finds first. If you remove it, the configuration will be permanent, unless you re-install.
I should be able to add timer functionality for the iOS version, but the device will need to stay on for anything over 3 minutes, Apple only lets things run in the background for around 3 minutes.
Also working on a full-time 2 button remote for iOS:
I really like vibration for positive feedback to let you know it understood your command, but I noticed at night if you have it setting on the nightstand the vibration could wake up the whole house, so I give you the option to turn that off. So many reasons why Alexa will not work.
