Nice work! As much as I love my flics, this is actually one of the things that annoys me too. It's to easy to accidentally trigger the them when wearing them on clothes or keeping them in pockets. In the future I would love to see a "rugged" version of flic for sports / heavy duty work scenarios: a little bit bigger and sturdier, water proof, more robust battery lid that won't come off too easily, bevel like this around the "press area" to avoid accidental triggering (but you should still be able to press it with work gloves on), ability to lock it or turn it off and a much much stronger belt clip.
@Joacim Thank you! Hope you will find a good solution. I'm no android developer, but I've actually managed to create a simple bridge app using your API and the example you've provided. It acts as a bridge between flic and zello, so now I have it working exactly as I want! But that does'nt mean you should stop working on it.. ;-)
@bambi2000 Thanks. I did manage to get the basics working (as well as find the streams for P3 and P4 :-) ). I also managed to group players by setting CurrentURI of the "slave" IP to the UUID of the "master".
@baobei Thanks. I got reply from flic team and it was replaced with new flic button. New button working perfectly.
My observation is, it can work with one app at a time. To make it work with other app, it require to forget from previous app. And couldn't find any method in SDK which can identify with which app it is workable currently.
@domas Thanks for that info. I just found that we created a bug when we refactored the app in the beginning of January that makes getName() always return null... We'll fix this in the next Flic app release.
Flic no longer works with Siri for users who are on iOS 10 or above. This is due to a bug in the Apple code which we have reported numerous times and are still trying to work with them to bring it back. There is no estimated date or time for this as it rests in Apples hands. From our end we do apologize for this as we know many of you requested and used this feature. We will keep on doing what we can to get Apple to fix their code.
Hi Emil, I don't know what platform mrwhale is using, but I would be interested in this for the linux platform. It would be good for the OpenHab binding that Patrick Fink is working on to be able to track battery life on the flic buttons and report when the battery needs changing, similar to other IoT devices.
@volker We are also very sorry that Siri does not currently work in iOS 10. We are pushing Apple to fix the bug but they unfortunately don't seem to care that much... The bug affects all BLE devices that attempt to use Siri.
When you're in the Task, click the little cog wheel on the top left. It will bring up My Task Settings and you can select remove at the bottom of that window that pops up. It will make sure you want to remove it and give you a warning about the task being lost.
