  1. for old people to press the flic to activate the inbuilt sos message feature in iphone and android

    currently you can triple click your power button on your android phone to send an sos message to programmed contacts with your location. Can you programme the flic so old people can push the flic once to send the sos message?

  3. Lifx control using the LAN API (no internet)

    At the moment the Lifx bulb control (on Android at least) is done using the HTTP API. That means that Flic is connected to the Lifx cloud account and the actions look like this:

    Flic->Android app----->Lifx cloud----->Bulbs

    The problem with that is that the delay after pressing the Flic is considerate and, worst of all, if the router loses conection to internet while still being powered up and offering WiFi then the button becomes useless.

    It would be great if the Lifx actions supported the LAN API as specified here: https://lan.developer.lifx.com/docs/introduction

    That way the bulbs can be controlled via WiFi…

  5. Page turner for ForScore and Newzik for conductors.

    I feel you could easily increase your sales with this addition to compatible applications. More and more musicians are using iPad Pros to read music from and conduct. The problem for conductors is the multiple page turns. The Flic is small enough to put in the palm of a conductors baton hand so you wouldn't need to turn pages by touching the screen. The two competitive applocations right now on the iPad are Newzik and ForScore.

  8. Dead man's switch: Perform an action when flic is NOT clicked

    Use Flic to say that everything is OK and have Flic perform an action if it's not.

    Send a warning if you forgot to take your pills, notify your personal trainer if you're slacking off or publish your secret wikileaks data if kidnapped by evilcorp.

    The possibilities are endless.

  10. Connection with the Spotify app instead of playing music in the Flic app

    Now, when you open Spotify and listen to your music and press on a Flic to skip to the next song, it will open the Flic app and plays your music from there while the song in the Spotify is also still playing...

  11. Delivering the flic to early backers

    I suggest you finally deliver the flics to your early kickstarter backers. Ordered november 2014. After one year still no delivery.
    That should be your NUMBER 1 priority

  13. Delay option for hue!

    It would be nice to get an delay option for the hue lights. For example: click at the flic turns some lights on and 5 minutes after the click my lights go off!

    Hi! This is possible with the Android Flic app! :) Here’s how to do it: When configuring the “click” you should add your first action, which is turning on the light. Then you can “chain” another action after that to turn off the light.
    The important thing is to delay this action by clicking the little clock icon at the top and setting the time you’d like.

    For iOS at the moment this isn’t possible, unfortunately.

    If you need more details we can help you out on the Community forum https://community.flic.io/ or at support@shortcutlabs.com

  14. Click once - more actions at once

    More than one action for "one click" - e.i. Click once - "turn on hue" AND "turn on Sonos" AND "use harmony hub and shut of TV"

    We rate our buttons to IP44 standard which officially classifies them as splashproof. They are not fully waterproof and we do not recommend using them in environments where the button could be fully submerged or sprayed with water for more than 10 mins. However using it with wet hands, or just light splashing of water will not affect the button, so you could place them on the wall in the bath/shower :)

  18. Add support for Android native camera, rather than using Flics built in camera app

    I like that there's a way of taking pictures using the flic app...but I would prefer if the Flic just supported the stock Camera on android.

    Also, to add on to a couple other ideas posted (Conditional Buttons/Configs), the flic button should be smart. When the Camera is open, then switch to camera controls.

  19. Http Calls (POST/GET) and REST API - Flic will become compatible with the WHOLE WEB!

    Make Flic able to do standart POST/GET and maybe even REST api calls... in this way, you will be able to do REALLY anything with Flic!
    Post your location? Done!
    Open your door? Easy!
    Share a post on Facebook? You name it!
    In this way, Flic will become REALLY an open platform, users from all around the world will be able to do ANYTHING with it, not just what the devs conceived!
