Wow. That was quick. Not available for me yet.


(Brad) #6

Thanks Eric. This support ticket was with 2.4.1. When you get Android 2.5.0, please give it a couple days and let us know if you’re still seeing mobile presence issues.

I sent the logs in last Friday.

Anyone tried putting a widget on their Android yet?
I go into widgets and can see the ST ones. 1x1 and a 2x2.
Tried putting on the 1x1 and when I release it in the position I want it, it opens. When I close it down it is not there.


(Ricci Hoffer) #9

Looks like you have to selct your location and then which routine you would like the widget button for. After that it will stay, atleast on my S5 it does.


#10

Enjoying the new 1x1 widget however I would love to be able to place them inside a folder to keep things neater, is that possible?


(Kris Schaller) #11

Unfortunately, that’s an OS limitation. We have no control over that ability for placement.


#12

Thanks for the response! Yea a widget definitely not but Android 7.1 introduced home screen shortcuts, that may work in this instance :slight_smile:


(Joshua Lyon (SharpTools.io Dashboard)) #13

If you are looking for shortcuts that you can place in folders, SharpTools has shortcuts for SmartThings Routines, Modes, and Things.


(Rick S) #14

I’m having an issue where the Things page is not updating when I turn a light on/off. If a light is on, I turn it off, the light goes off but the status still shows as on. If I go into the light, it shows as off, back to the Things menu and it still shows as on

Switch back and forth a couple times and it finally updates

(Christophe Sellan) #15

Hi Rick, good update, but you have add a + at the top right of the “my home/things” to add things.
We already have it at the end of the list of things.
I was thinking you add a preference icon to manage things order and the ability to hide things to clear the screen and the list. :sunglasses:
No issue for me with the presence sensor. Good job


(Christophe Sellan) #16

An other question, a beta program exist? And how I can participate


(Dave N) #17

Sadly, CoRE still doesn’t work so I still have to back-date the app anytime I want to make changes or pause pistons.
I really have to get to WebCoRE I guess.


#18

Core is working fine on 2.5.0. Check that you have it up to date in your IDE. Try adding a new instance of core and test if pistons work inside of it


(Arnoud) #19

I noticed that the Android version of the app still does not support rotating the video feed from a Samsung camera.

The iOS app does this just fine, and the Android app also did in the past, but since a few versions back it stopped working.

(reproduce: start video feed -> hit fullscreen button -> rotate phone to landscape -> video does not rotate.)


(Realy Living Dream) #20

Looks like the 1x1 widgets are only for single use. I set it up for Good night ,last night presses it and it worked as expected. Then it disappeared, just became a plane white circle. Tried it again with Good-bye this morning and same thing. Good bye fired and then widget turned to blank circle and I needed to remove and then install widget again to get it back.
Note the empty white circle top right where Good night used to be
