Good work dimple, impressed! For those who don't know, no nfc tags or buttons will not work at all when the screen is off because nfc is turned off completely when the screen is off or the phone is locked for security reasons. There is nothing dimple or trigger or any app developer can do if android has it locked down, unless android fixes this with android m with trusted NFC ids to trigger with screen off. **If you wish to bypass this then you'll need to be rooted, have xposed framework installed and download" NFC screen on".
Really wanted to like it, but the fact the off screen offers no functionality gives it a major drawback. I understand their wanting it to be fully secure and not giving us that option yet, but they should allow certain apps to run with it off. Stuff like the flashlight, music, picture app, etc. The other thing I don't like about it is there is no apparent way to turn off the sound the buttons make when you're pressing them. I looked in the settings and didn't see anything. I'm not sure if it's my NFC that's making the sound or not, but it'd be nice to have the option to mute the sound when you're pressing the buttons. Also, you def have to press on the buttons pretty hard to make them go. Not sure if it's just me or not, but it'd be nice if the buttons were a bit softer to push. The things I do like about it is I love being able to turn off my wifi by pressing the button. I also set the other buttons, to launch the camera app, go to my favorite site, and make a phone call. Those things are pretty great. If they could fix the other 3 issues I'd def give it a 5 star. Really cool product. Wonder why there isn't an iPhone app though.
Bought a dimple and wont work Bought a dimple for my xperia z2 use the app but it won't connect. I am using a custom ROM (CM12.1) and have NFC enabled....
Screen off kills it Without turning on the screen and unlocking it there is no other way to use this. That for me makes this awesome product pretty much a dud for me. Hopefully future update will fix this. ALSO MORE PHONE SETTINGS NEED TO BE ADDED
Galaxy note 3 Works great if the screen is ON!, but if the screen is off nothing of the function works . Please fix it today i got it im really happy about it just need to fix this issue thank you
The dimple app is high quality Programming functions for the dimple buttons is easy, intuitive, and versatile. I'm enjoying it. I installed the xposed framework and the nfc module that let's me use my dimple when the screen is off, greatly amplifying the utility.
Fix for some DOCOMO, KDDI and Softbank devices
