It's a neat little button, but I bought it to work with Android Auto so I could trigger Google voice with a button press instead of trying to scream over my music. The Google voice action pulls up Google now outside of Android auto instead of the one built in to Android auto. This makes most tasks not work or take longer than they should. Add better functionality with Android Auto or better yet more customization of action and this will be a solid product.
Quite good. Most of the time it works very well. It's not plagued by Bluetooth connection issues as I might have expected. Some omissions, like if one light is already on and the other is off the toggle mode swaps them round rather than turning both off or on. But it has a good range of integrations. Basically it can act as a switch for smart products like lights, it can record data like a number of times you did something or the time, say brushing your teeth. Or can it can perform a simple online action like sending a message or ordering a pizza.
Works so far, had it a couple weeks. I take my phone in and out of range of it five times a day, and (knock on wood) it re-pairs itself instantly. Voice recognition in general still sucks (you know it) so I wanted a one-button solution to call my partner via the hands-free in the car. No scrolling, no selecting, just push the button to call him. This is it. Phone pairs to both the car and the flic seamlessly, so I don't have to think.
You guys have clearly put in a lot of work with this product! Love all the integrations. Just needs SmartThings and Tasker. Also appreciate the Mac app. Update: holy hell...just found the Tasker stuff. Nice! Update2: Just got it working with smartthings. Click it, bedroom fan on. Dbl click, phone reads last text msg. etc.
One of the main uses of the Flic buttons and app, for myself, is to activate a timer with a predefined length. On my iPhone this was very easy to setup. Now on an Android phone I'm finding this to be a hard task to setup. There is an egg timer built-in and it "ticks" for the duration of the timer. I've reached out to support and learned that the ticking sound cannot be turned off. WHY would anyone want a timer to tick for the duration of the timer?
I've been using Flic for a short time and it's frustrating because of the inconsistent connection to my phone. (Samsung S6). I was hoping for direct compatibility with Wink Hubs, not a separate hub.
