Many thanks for the mail notification extension.
Is it possible, to have a widget for cleaning the mails, without going thru the liveware menus?
I'm looking forward, if this extension is working under ICS.

But still i changed a bit what i have forgot in the mail library.
smartwatchmailnotifier.apk

and i have developed a GPS Map Application:
SmartwatchMap.apk

I was not able to use the google maps api inside of an smartwatch app so i needed to make it different.

it uses now openstreetmap.

It does not have an own icon at the moment.

If you do not enable gps on your phone it should use your network location which is not really exact.
It keeps your WatchScreen enabled and might eat much battery for your phone and watch.

Please remember: everything is still in beta. So sorry about bugs.

Hi.

if it is not responding it is most likely some wrong with your setting.
You can find the correct Port for your mailserver on the webpage of your mailprovider most of the time.
993 is only the port for the imaps port of google mail.

if you set it to imap it will most likely be a different port.

If you have set the server in any mail application on your desktop PC you could get the correct settings from there maybe.


I also changed the GPS Map application for the Smartwatch.
It is using now Google Maps and i have set the refreshing even higher. I am not sure about the battery consumtion with that high refreshrate.
with a press on the screen of the smartwatch you can dim the screen.

The problem with google mail is the big copyright box at the bottom that is eating much space.

Google Maps version:
http://bytewiese.de/fileadmin/_media...tchMapGmap.apk

OpenStreetMap version:
http://bytewiese.de/fileadmin/_media...rtwatchMap.apk

You can not install both at the same time.


Maybe i should make a thread where all the apps for the Smartwatch can be found? I am not really sure if this is the right thread for the development of smartwatch apps.

Smile thank you again beuo, re: google maps app

I downloaded the google maps app and it works; however it shows no street names, while the prior app showed street names, just fyi. also, i configured the mailnotification app with imap correctly and port 993 but still receive no notification, i have 2 step authentication active, but even had google generate a specific password for the app, but still nothing, maybe there is something wrong with ics on galaxy nexus 2 since the gmail notifier in the playstore does work but only with subject line but no body.cheers

Hi fourthw,

About the street names.. i fear google maps is not really optimized for such a low resolution. But it seems zooming out helped. You only need to reopen the app on the smartwatch and the new zoom should be active. I will see if i could make it zoomable from the app.

Am using a galaxy note with android ICS 4.0.4.

If you use google mail with 2 step verification you need to create a password for the app. Try to enter it with or without spaces. I fear though that the google mail imap implementation is a bit different because i wasnt able to see the bodytext either.

I am currently using the rss reader to get the google mail notifications where at least a part of the bodytext is readable. If you wish i could tell you how to use the rss reader for that.

//edit: have you enabled imap in google mail? http://support.google.com/mail/bin/a...n&answer=77695

Thumbs up beowulf: re google maps and mail notifier

Good morning, thank you for your kind replies. Google maps now shows the street names, but as you said it is very zoomed which is fine, so thank you! Re: mail notification, yes i did enable IMAP but still nothing,I also did give it a separate password through the google authentication thing online. i think it may be the app itself on my galaxy nexus running 4.0.2 since everytime i access the app on the phone it freezes and says mail notification is not responding, do you want to wait or cancel. I do have the rss feed and its working really well. I also was able to get at least the subject line in the gmail notifier app from google play (but no body of mail) by giving it its own password through authentication. cheers

just tried again since you mentioned that . . . I had to turn off my watch before installing . . . . that did the trick

ref: official app, I think if you read the notes it mentions the default sony email app on sony phones .. .
