Thumbs up LightFlow finally supports the Sony SmartWatch 2

Hello guys! I'd like to report here that LightFlow finally supports the Sony SmartWatch 2! If you're already using it for handling the leds of your phone, you can also forward the notifications to the watch just selecting a checkbox.

Here's a link to the app: https :// play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflow (sorry I don't have enough posts).

It works pretty smoothly, so give it a try!

You can select for each of your application how it notifies you. For example, if you want to handle your Facebook's notifications, you can select the color and frequency of the led, the sound, the vibration, etc., but also you can now send the notification to your watch.

This is pretty neat, because a lot of events can be handled by that app: you could for example send a notification to your watch when your phone is fully charged, and so on.

Wow, that does sound neat. I think my ROM has a way to program different light colors but it was never that interesting to me. But it sounds really interesting so I will check it out. One question... are they full notifications (eg the full email)?

How does it send the notification to the Smartwatch? Could you attach a picture showing it please?

Regards.

It must only be in the pay app. The free app doesn't show it. I wouldn't buy this without a chance to test it out.

I love when an app I bought and used to use adds functionality that compels me to re-install

I started using Lightflow again after getting my SmartWatch - it seems to support all notifications, and extended Gmail notifications as well (which is great).
Is there a way of specifying notifications to be sent to the watch only when the screen is off?

@andrewpmoore - just wondering if you'd be able to provide LightFlow with detailed notifications from Gmail - with other apps that push notifications to the SmartWatch like Watchify, it's possible to push the contents of whole email on the smartwatch. Can Lightflow be set up to do this?
