Dessin


Dessin (pronounced like "design") is an innovative combination of mind map and phone automator. It allows you to make notes, draw mind-maps and even build circuits, which will control your phone. You will achieve all of these things by connecting nodes into circuits:

Tutorial 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQ3szmF0q_o

This is not a single-purpose app. Some of the things that you may do with it:

- make shopping list that your phone will show to you near grocery
- write notes during lectures (and connect them with other notes)
- automatically silence phone during lectures
- automatically silence phone when in the cinema
- enable Wi-Fi only at home
- schedule alarm at 8am from monday to friday
- keep the screen bright when reading books

These are nodes that are currently available:
1. Content: text, image, webpage
2. Triggers: geofence, manual, screen on, hours, weekdays, charging
3. Actions: wifi state, bluetooth state, wake lock, alarm, silencer, flashlight
4. Logic: any, all, negation
5. Numbers: number, add, multiply

App is (mostly) localized in several languages: english, german, spanish, french, polish, portugal, russian, chinese. If you want to translate it/correct/update translation to your language, you can do so on http://translate.dessin.it/

Great Design but still needs work I like the look of the app. Did take a while to get to know how everything works. Its still a bit limited but hoping that changes. Also I have problems with geofences activating nodes. I have them set to about 2 mile radius for best results.

Great app, but needs to grow This is a great concept but it needs to grow, it needs more options. I hope this can become the next Tasker.

Needs more... This app is worth $0.99 in its current state, but I purchased anyway in hopes that more will be added. There are so few actions/triggers. I want to be able to control volume levels in certain locations, for example; Not just have an option to silence or un-silence. If I'm at work, I still want sound, but lower sound than normal....not just silenced. Bluetooth on/off in certain locations...? Cell tower states?

Seems half baked The concept sounds good, but I unfortunately bought sight unseen (instead of trying the free version first) and from what I can tell Dessin is limited, clunky, and buggy. Using its user interface is a trial, with controls that don't work intuitively and are too small on my 2013 Nexus 7. Even once you deploy nodes they don't work consistently. One final note: All tutorials and help are online.
