With this app you can read on your Gear notifications you receive on your mobile and also respond to many predefined as well with a small keyboard or by voice answers.
By default are including many of the messaging Apps and Gmail, but is fully configurable options App.
If you want to include other notifications, you must activate it so that every time you get a new one, it ask you and thereafter will show it. If you change your mind then you can change the allowed or denied in the Notifications menu option. If enabled, then on the main screen you can see which apps have enabled and which not and delete where appropriate.
The initial purpose of the app is to emulate the behavior of notifications Android Wear in our gear Samsung.
- 1: Background photo of the contact (if possible) and outline notification
- 2: Content scrollable Notification.
- 3: If an image is downloaded you will see here (not always visible)
- 4,5,6: Answer options if any.
If the background is blue, pressing the action will take place on mobile.
If the background is red, pressing the action will take place on the clock.
In the clock, we have preconfigured responses but you can include your own answers. To do this you have to edit the file located in the root of your SD called GearOptions.txt .
You can also use a small keyboard that has improved over versions.
To change the screen you have to do a swipe left or right. If you are in the first screen and do one swipe to the right, the notification will be deleted in the watch and phone.
By default when a phone notification is removed is also removed the clock. What you can change at options.
Position when more than one notification on the clock appears in the top right. To change do swipe up and down.
The notifications for the same contact who are stored in the watch are grouped, so that will appear on the first screen, either up, down or both the number of related messages. Clicking on the number a new screen will show a summary of all messages. If you click on any of them, grant your details.
Why sometimes I can and sometimes I can not answer?
This App read notifications through the API and can only access the possibility of answers and images (whatsapp) when no notification waiting on mobile.
When the notification is extended (as you can see in the mobile), then yes you can and gives the possibility and also stores it for the next time the same contact or send the same group further notice. So the app learns, but lost each time the phone is rebooted or the App is updated.
If the App doesn't connect (The Asterisk button has a red background)
Pressing the button takes you to a zone configuration to try to connect. When not working, the best way is to deactivate and then reactivate the bluetooth on the phone.
In the configuration screen you can also enable or disable the notifications on the clock and even change the background theme to one in black and white.
