Do the following apps work? Oh, and one "feature" question..
I hope I can get some feedback if the following apps work on the G2.
1) Wave Control: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nk.WaveControl
Does Wave Control work well enough I can use unlock/lock my phone with waving/gesture? I use this app a ton while driving too (other wave gestures).
2) FitBit: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...t.FitbitMobile
I want to know if the FitBip app will synch with their server end using the Bluetooth Low Energy connection of the LGG2. This would eliminate the need to only have my stuff synch when I'm near the dongle (which may be for a day or two)
As for my question, I was lead to believe that if you change the default launcher, that you lose the ability to Knock On/Off the device? Is that true? I use Nova, and, if this feature is removed when switching launchers...what has anyone else done to add similar functionality back to the device? I use wave control to unlock/lock my phone while driving, and in a jam/pinch I can use the Power Button (since it's on the side) of my _current_ device. If/When I get the G2, I realize this isnt the easiest to do (with my dock, at least). I hope to keep it mostly hands free (or the least amount of hand involvement) when driving, and would need to work around my "issue" some how.
Totally appreciate any feedback!
edit: I do not own the device, I plan on purchasing it (unless the Nexus 5 is better).
