DeviceType Tiles and Shake titles


(Dav Glass) #1

I love that the default app supports shaking to show title to tiles, but can we do that on SmartDevices?

I’m working on a thermostat and I have like 5 temperatures to show (for my geo unit) but the circle tiles with temps are pretty useless if you don’t know what they are. And I would hate to waste a valueTile above/below it just to label them.

You mean on Device “Sub-Tiles”?

Just trying to figure out what the Terminology is, even if the feature is unlikely to be implemented very soon.

Actually, standardTiles can appear on the main Things list and have their names displayed when shaken.

Ah… But I found the terminology in the Docs (and, the meta section: Main Tile vs. Detail Tiles.

There seems to be no way to shake for labels on the Detail Tiles.
