Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

As soon as Apple gives us access to the ringer programmatically, I'll make an iOS version. As of now, they won't allow this type of app in the Appstore

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

But first, are you sure that's a function of 7? The reason I ask, is looking at my settings (pixel/7.1), there is still the option of using nearby SSIDs as part of the location services. So I doubt if 7 would have turned off that background scan. However, depending on the location settings, you may...

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

Well, somehow Android still searches and finds wifi automatically. Perhaps you can check what network the phone is attached to. The app isn't dependent on the user connecting to a specific network. It depends on nearby SSID's to cover any members that do not automatically connect to the church's wi...

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

I installed the app and checked it when I got to church. Sure enough, it put my phone on vibrate, which was my option. While still at church, I accidentally bumped the volume button which overrode your app and put it back on ringer. Nothing I did could get your app to change my phone back to vibrat...

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

So the first thing I've noticed from today's reports is that the app isn't compatible with Android 7.0 yet. Nougat doesn't scan wifi in the background anymore and I depended on this for my broadcast receiver. I'll have to figure out a way around this for any phones with Android 7.0+. If anyone has a...

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

That's great to hear! Hope it works well for you. Regarding those that live close by, I doubt the wifi signal will reach that far. Normally it barely reaches the parking lot. During my testing, I've seen it activate while I'm parking and deactivate while I'm pulling out of the parking spot. I'm sure...

Re: LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

An earlier version had settings for days of the week but I removed it. I'm trying to keep the app as simple as possible so I went with just adding a disabled mode instead. The type of user I made this for is someone who wouldn't really want/know how to configure apps. The idea was that all you need ...

LDS Reverent Mode (Android only)

Hey, so I made a simple android app a while ago that would silence your phone when you would walk into any LDS chapel. It would make use of the standard SSID that we use in most chapels. It was a very simple app that I made using tasker but I've now re-written it from scratch. It's the first android...

Re: Amazon Echo - General Conference Audio Library?

haha, I was just about to start this project. No sense in duplicating work. If someone here has already started, please let me know. If not, I will continue making this for the Google Home. Thanks!

ChromeBase computers?

There are so many issues with slow computers for clerks and Family History Centers. With everything going on the web now, wouldn't a ChromeBase make more sense? They're virtually maintenance free. No need to worry about viruses, monitoring installed programs, firewalls, etc. All the ward would need ...
