Feature Request - Lock Screen Status

Postby thomthom » 19 Jul 2012, 22:10

It'd be nice if Turf could add a Zone Takeover indicator on the lockscreen so you only need to touch the screen to verify you're taking the zone.

That way you don't have to leave the screen on all the time and also don't have to unlock the phone every time to just check the takeover status.

Very nice suggestion.

Great idea! But how would you do it in practice?

Different manufactures put different lockscreens on they phones and they don't allow for customization. This means there is no lockscreen independent way to implement the feature and this it has to be integrated into some third party lockscreen. The question is then which lockscreen, and how to do it? Can such a thing be developed separately from the main Turf app? If not the Turf developers have to put time away to implement it which I don't think they have. iPhone is a bigger priority imho.

For example Spotify does it, it even allows interacting using Previous-Play/Pause-Next buttons.

Some info I found: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8170 ... oid-screen

And this is probably what Spotify uses so it might not be useful for Turf purposes: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1080 ... lockscreen

As paldepind says..

If anyone want to create some code that we just feed with a percentage from the countdown, Then we could implement it to the app "easily".

An other option is to use notifications. One icon for "taking", with a progress bar if the notification tray is opened. And an other icon for "zone taken" that would automatically be dismissed after a while, but before the user reaches the next zone.
Tapping either notification should open the turf application.
"taking" could be an "ongoing" notification and the other should be dismissable.

Notifications has the advantage of being visible from both the lock screen and other applications.
