@ymsetjenesta Where do you see this? Can you send a screenshot?
You wanna watch TV (eg with VLC, than you could even conrol the vlc player with flic) and want to set the MAC to sleep without pressing any key - just the flic?
Use this plugin to put the system to sleep with a flic actionSystemSleepPlugin.zip
Just unzip this folder to the plugin folder as described here in the plugin tutorial
Enjoy and sleep well...
Actual, wireless push buttons, not much bigger than the keys on your keyboard, that connects to your Mac through Bluetooth. No dongle required.
Today we’re proud to release the Flic App for Mac. It’s quite simple: we give you extra buttons for your Mac. Good’ol favorite buttons, but for your desk.
The Flic Mac App that we release today can be used to create shortcuts in two ways:
Pair Flic buttons to your Mac to quickly execute your favorite functions
Use Widgets to run shortcuts from your notification center without the need of Flic.
How to use it?Keynote - use Flic as a tiny presentation clicker without the annoying Bluetooth dongle Timely - use Flics to report time spent on multiple projects beautifully Spotify - you know that play/pause function button that never prioritizes Spotify and that no longer exists on TouchBar? That, but wireless and working. Smart home (Hue, LifX, Wink, Wemo)- Control light and music in the office without disturbing your workflow IFTTT and Zapier to run Web scripts or controlling your other gadgets. Slack – to let colleagues know you made a sale or that you’re going for lunch. Internet Request - send a REST command on a click o a button.
Here is what we thought about:
Our Beta testers wanted this, so we added it:VLC - Using a Mac as a media center? Flic to control it. ChromeCast - stream pre-defined content with the click of a button. Your kids will love it. XCode - automate your hacking. Web browser - click to open a site.
If you miss a functionality, please suggest an idea here.
Just like in the Flic apps for iOS and Android, you can have multiple Flic buttons connected to a Mac. Each Flic can be individually configured to do multiple commands on either click, double click and hold.
In this setup, I have a green, a white and a turquoise Flic (all mounted on my external screen), a Widget to control the lights in my office and a widget to do this. Access the widget in the Mac notification center.
Bringing our expertise to a new platform
When we invented the smart button in 2013, we wanted to create a tool to save people’s time and to reduce complexity in technology. We had several use cases in mind. Put Flic in your home to control lights and music. Wear Flic to send distress messages or tell RunKeeper to start tracking your work-out. Give grandma buttons to call you easier. Take smartphone pictures from afar.
We came up with hundreds of applications and things to control with the button and built one of the most extensive apps we have ever seen, natively on both iOS and Android, implementing almost everything our customers wanted a button for.
Now we bring all that to Mac, along with the FlicLib - probably the best Bluetooth Low Energy library out there. Expect lots of new functionality to be added soon, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Love, The Flic team
I have a Flic button on my car steering wheel, programmed to do Next Track on my iPhone.
However, in the morning, when i first get into the car, the button will not do anything until I launch the Flic app. Is this expected? I would like the button to do its thing regardless of whether the app is actually running or not.
Also, when I force-close the app, the button stops doing its action.
Expected or not expected?
