WM Phone Notification Mode

This app allows you to find out the notification mode of your phone (normal, vibrate, or silent) from Watchmaker.

Important Note:
This app is only useful to people who also use the Watchmaker app. In addition, it is only really useful to those who use the Orbital Weather face or who intend to use it when building their own faces. Watchmaker and Orbital Weather are available on Google Play.


Inside Watchmaker you can access your phone's current notification mode using the tag:

It can have three values:
on Normal sound and vibration
vibrate Vibrate-only mode (no sound)
off No sound or vibration

This app also creates two other tags:
{twpn_mode_version} Version
{twpn_mode_as} Running as Tasker or app ("Tasker" or "app")

If you want to change the phone notification mode from Watchmaker you can install my WM Phone Notification Toggle app (available on Google Play).

Tasker Users:

If you use Tasker and import the project for this app, instead of installing the app itself, your Watchmaker faces can assign its Tasker tasks to a layer's Tap Action. The following tasks are available to let you change the phone notification mode:

phone notification toggle
phone notification set on
phone notificaiton set vibrate

You will know you can use those tasks if {twpn_mode_as} == 'Tasker'.
