Widgets for Speedometer for the Sony SmartWatch 2

by eir

The Sony SmartWatch 2 has the really cool feature of watchface widgets – meaning you can place any information on the screen, which is visible all the time, and since the screen is not illuminated most of the time, the battery life is preserved quite a bit.

The Speedometer app takes advantage of this SmartWatch 2 novelty and now displays the data in two kind of widgets:
1) The full speedometer widget – which displays the same data as the app itself, and is therefore taking all the space of the screen.

Full speedometer widget, displays all data and takes up the whole screen area.

2) The speed widget – which displays only the current speed data, and therefore takes only a tiny portion of the screen, leaving it up to you to decide how to fill the rest of the screen area.

The minimal widget - displays only the current speed (bottom right corner), leaving it up to you to fill up the rest of the screen with the information you prefer.

At last, the Orthodox Calendar for Sony SmartWatch is available in Greek language.

It contains the full calendar of saints and the icons, as used in the full app version for Android. This goes for SmartWatch 2 devices only.

SmartWatch 1 users would not see any icons, nor full calendar of saints, only the feast / main saint of the day.

The app supports both the old (Julian) and the new (Gregorian) calendar, there is a checkbox in the app settings.

After a longer period, the Fast Dialer app has been updated with some new features and minor fixes.

The main new feature is the possibility to directly dial a number, send an SMS or add to contacts the clipboard contents. So you can copy a number from anywhere in your phone, from the Internet etc. and then use it directly in Fast Dialer, just long press on the number entry field, and you’ll be presented the options.

The other small but crucial update is the support for Android 4.4.

More languages for the SMS Composer app!

by eir

Two important updates have been made to the SMS Composer app in it’s latest version 5.8; the first is the addition of new languages with spelling suggestions support. Those are:

  • Portuguese
  • Greek
  • Serbian
  • Croatian
  • Slovenian

That makes the number of available spelling suggestion languages amount to ten.

The other novelty is the option to turn off the spelling suggestions generally, in the app’s settings. And that is useful in case the app performs slowly on your device. Just turn of the spelling suggestions and you get a huge performance boost.

Sony SmartWatch and BlackBerry 10

by eir

Not so long ago, I got an amazing Z10 from Marmalade (thanks to them once again), and it’s such nice hardware and OS, I’m using it as my main device ever since. One of the things I missed, however, was my SmartWatch, which works only with Android devices.

However, not much was needed for it to be able to work with BlackBerry 10’s Android player, main thing was Bluetooth. Thus, I was really excited when I heard the announcement that the next version of BB10 would include Bluetooth support. And when I found a leaked version of that OS, it only took some repackaging and simple tweaks to get the SmartWatch connected to the phone.

Here’s a video demo, which uses some of my apps: the Dialer, SMS Composer and Sound Meter.

Not everything works, as there are still some BlackBerry limitations on its Android player, but if Sony and BlackBerry fancy this combination, all that can be overcame very easily.
