  2. Instant Soundhound/Shazam song recognition with voice feedback

    Recognize the song and let the phone tell you via the speaker. (Since you are not holding and watching your phone.)
    Safer for in the car, simply faster elsewhere.
    Bonus: double click to buy song from iTunes...

  3. IFTTT/DO/Tasker/Zapier Integration

    There are so many automation "links" out there, that there is no need to integrate FLIC with hundreds of different actions. If it is a trigger in IFTTT(or whatever), then it can trigger all kinds of things.

  4. Flic + Trigger

    Same that IFTTT but more powerful on Android : ability to execute multiple tasks in a row from the mobile phone.

    Example : I put the Flic on my motorcycle, and these tasks are executed (within Trigger) : activate the GPS, raise the sound to maximum, open spotify, send SMS to my wife to say I'm coming back whatever...

  5. Simulate pressing a Flic button in the iOS app

    Change the app so that you can click on buttons that are configured under the hub as if they were the real physical button and perform the correlating action e.g. virtual button via phone.
    Could even make them work over internet, which would allow remote execution.

  6. Flic Hub PoE

    If you iterate on the Hub, I would love to see the second generation able to take power from PoE. This would assist with corporate or advanced home deployments; less cables, no power outlet near Flic Hub required.

  8. Make the flic app compatible with Android TV

    So I can install it on my Nvidia Shield console (which is always on anyway). That way I don't have to use my phone!

    An MQTT-client implemented in the app to be able to post MQTT-messages to a specific topic and with an arbitrary message.

    Extras: Password authentication support to authenticate to the MQTT-broker.

  13. Lifx control using the LAN API (no internet)

    At the moment the Lifx bulb control (on Android at least) is done using the HTTP API. That means that Flic is connected to the Lifx cloud account and the actions look like this:

    Flic->Android app----->Lifx cloud----->Bulbs

    The problem with that is that the delay after pressing the Flic is considerate and, worst of all, if the router loses conection to internet while still being powered up and offering WiFi then the button becomes useless.

    It would be great if the Lifx actions supported the LAN API as specified here: https://lan.developer.lifx.com/docs/introduction

    That way the bulbs can be controlled via WiFi…

  14. Ultimate Car Companion

    One press - Skip this track. Who really needs to urgently Play/Pause their music? Siri can do both, you have your volume knob, let's not waste a combo.
    Double press - Play a random playlist. Long drive? Tired of this genre? Go to a random playlist for something fresh!
    Long Press - Activate Siri, for everything else!

  15. Get distance between button and my device to perform a specific action.

    Recover the distance between a button and my device to perform a specific action, and get distance paramater in sdk (signal force). (like EBeacon)

    As opposed to monitoring, which enables users to detect movement in-and-out of range of the Flics, ranging provides a list of Flics detected in a given region, along with the estimated distance from the user's device to each Flic. Ranging works only in the foreground but will return (to the listening device) an array (unlimited) of all Flics found along with their properties.
    A device receiving a Flic transmission can approximate the distance from the Flic.…

  16. Google maps on iOS

    Be able to start Google maps as navigation on iPhone so you can get decent traffic info. My plan (I have it on Android) is to have a button in the car which with one press navigates home and with two to work so I can avoid queues.

  17. Integrate directly with Wink Hub rather than BTLE.

    Integrate directly with Wink Hub to give access and control even when phones or computers are not nearby.

  18. Flic + Voice recorder

    Flic of the wrist!
    Can always think of tricky situations in public or at work where you can't take your phone out that you want to record audio such as college lecture, meeting, audio note or potentially litigious conversation (hopefully not).
    With flic you could be ready for those moments! Use the clip to attach it to the inside of your cuff, watch or bracelet and with one press it records and with two it stops. Would also work great with IFTT (Which everyone should vote for!) to save audio recordings to the cloud storage when finished.

    Voice recorder does work on the devices we have tried although it’s admittedly not very user friendly. When you start voice recording for the first time, it starts recording. When you execute the action a second time, it stops. The audio files are stored in your device memory (device Storage) in the folder Flic/Audio. We will look into how we can make the Action more intuitive, suggestions are very welcome!

  19. Start specific song on Sonos

    Would be great if you can start a specific song in e.g. Spotify or Apple Music, (this part already exists) and than have it automatically streams to a selected Sonos speaker.
