(Mobile) I Have A Question...  - 
 
Community links do not appear on the mobile app

When using the mobile app, the links I added to my community are not being listed. On the web, these links are immediately listed below the community's description. I attached an image highlighting the problem.

Am I missing something? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks.

+Ricardo Lage There is an option on the mobile client to submit feedback, its not visible in all screens so you may have to invoke it at the top level.

Hi,

Version 1.5alpha1 is now published with new plugins for Tasker. This includes an event plugin that you can use to trigger tasks when an alarm is triggered, snoozed, dismissed, set or disabled.

I wrote a blog post with more details about all you can do with Tasker and AlarmPad now: http://www.mindmeapp.com/1/post/2014/04/here-is-all-you-can-do-with-tasker-and-alarmpad.html

Please do try the new plugins and let me know what you think and how I can improve.

PLEASE NOTE
 * This is a test version! If you must wake up on time, please make sure to have a backup alarm.
 * If you left the test or haven't joined it yet, you need to do so in order to get this version: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.mindmeapp.alarmpad 
 * Please report any problems with the app here.

Thanks!

Hi +Shannon Lynch  , you probably can't use these plugins but if AutomateIt supports sending intents, here is what you can try:

To dismiss or snooze an alarm (for example, if you want to have a shake to dismiss feature), you can send an intent to AlarmPad with the action  com.thetalkerapp.alarm.ALARM_
SNOOZE to snooze it and com.thetalkerapp.alarm.ALARM_DISMISS to dismiss it.

Similarly, if AutomateIt supports receiving intents from other apps, you can create an event-based task by setting up a task based on an intent received with the action  com.thetalkerapp.alarm.ALARM_
DONE. This intent is sent from AlarmPad when an alarm is dismissed or snoozed. Unfortunately in this case there is no way to distinguish between a snooze and a dismiss and your task will fire either way if you use this intent.

Hope this helps. Let me know if it works.

Thanks!

This community has now over 500 members. Thank you all so much for the help. Beta testing an alarm app is risky business. :)

Looks like that translucent status bar is used wrong. The 'Set alarm' screen should make use of up button in the actionbar instead of the big back button at the bottom. Other than that, looks cool ;-) https://plus.google.com/113735310430199015092/posts/bbUng2LpXfK

The new Samsung ultra power saving mode is going to break a lot of apps, here is why.

I haven't tried the device yet but this mode seems to be an extreme version of Sony's STAMINA mode (http://developer.sonymobile.com/2013/04/03/how-sonys-battery-stamina-mode-works/). For apps, this kind of feature means the AlarmManager's set() method won't work with RTC_WAKEUP or ELAPSED_REALTIME_WAKEUP flags. That is, your app's alarms won't be triggered at the time you specify because this mode will ignore them.

On Sony's STAMINA mode now there is an option to add certain apps to a list of exceptions but that was not always the case. On older devices, if STAMINA is enabled, your alarms will be triggered only after the user turns the screen back on. Either way, if your app must rely on triggering alarms on exact times, you better detect that the user is on a Sony device and display a warning message.

Now with Samsung ultra power saving mode there seems to be nothing you can do (http://galaxys5guide.com/samsung-galaxy-s5-features-explained/galaxy-s5-ultra-power-saving-mode/). With this mode on, only stock apps that come with the phone are currently supported. Everything else won't work. Forget your alarm clock, calendar and reminder apps. They won't notify you of your events unless you use Samsung's apps for these tasks.

Do you have a Galaxy S5? Is that really the case?

Thank you very much for all the help trying the app, giving feedback and updating the translations. Version 1.4 is now slowly being updated to all users.

I'm starting to think of the new features for version 1.5 and would love to hear your suggestions again. What would you like to see on the next version of AlarmPad?

Hi +Simon Carter , the ability to change the background should be available soon with an extension. A quick nap function is also in the works. Changing the background color of the action bar might take a while longer though.

+Daniel Alber , yes, I'm thinking of how best to add a stopwatch/timer to the app. It should be possible.

Thanks for the feedback.
