WatchIt!

WatchIt!


WatchIt! will pickup up Notifications and Toasts from all your existing applications and display them for you in various ways.

Currently there is support for SmartWatch and SmartWatch 2 by Sony, MetaWatch, Smart Wireless Headset Pro (MW1), experimental support for Gear (not working) plus theDayDream feature of Android 4.2+ - see the screenshot above for an example of what is shown when an email arrives. This works on phones as well as tablets (and most likely anything else running 4.2) - select it as any other DayDream.

Just follow the instructions shown when you start the app to enable them and then fine tune.

(Also, the icon will watch over you and protect you from the evil eye.)

NOTE: You MUST turn on Accessibility for this app to work at all. For 4.3+ you may *instead* use Notification access - this avoids the Samsung firmware bugs (see below), but will not pick up Toasts. Your choice!
The DayDream is turned on separately in the usual place.

FAQ:
* In some cases voice feedback is activated, why?
This is a firmware bug in some phones. A workaround can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1785194&page=2 - alternatively, use Notificaiton access under 4.3+.

* Some messages had duplicated text, why?
Notifications can have a ticker text that i shown along the top at creation time - this is shown on the watch as "Message [ Ticker ]". Usually the ticker text is a summary but sometimes (especially on older apps) it is the same. If it is identical it will be removed from the message, but sometimes it is only slightly different, then it my be shown as "John Doe Message [ John: Message ]" or similar.

* How do I change all the apps' settings from "Both"?
Just use the "Default App Setting" first - this applies to any app you have not explicitly set to some other value which is useful for future installs too!


Please encourage those who build the notifications to improve their messages if you want more text to be shown.

Please use the feedback button as it is impossible to respond to reviews.

NOTE: Please install this update *before* upgrading to the upcoming Sony firmware!
If the app starts to behave odd after that firmware upgrade, simply uninstall this app and make a clean install - it will restore your app specific settings settings automatically, but you still need to follow the instructions.

Contains a fix for the new firmware and a workaround for users with 200+ apps installed - the list will no longer show all the icons in those long lists.

Doesn't work for me Test notification show up but after that, nothing. Followed all the steps as instructed. Using on a Note 2 with CyanogenMod ROM. I don't get the 'update before updating SW2' thing, doesn't cover those of us who have the SW2 update before finding this app?

Great App - Doesn't work anymore... I installed this app yesterday and it was working great. I had to complete a factory reset on my phone today and I reinstalled this app and now it wont work... When this app works, it the best notification system I've seen for the Sony Smartwatch 2... I just can't seem to get it to work again...
