Augmented SmartWatch Pro has been optimized over the past 8 months for notifications. Other apps will simply relay the information it receives via accessibility from applications. While this is fine for some apps, I have found that many key apps have some specific behaviour that make this a non-optimal user experience.
Hence the following optimizations are built into Augmented SmartWatch Pro (specific to notifications)
- More notification information is provided in Augmented SmartWatch Pro. A good way to test this is Skype chat messages. Augmented SmartWatch Pro will provide the actual contents of the chat message on your smartwatch. Other apps will provide only the name of the sender. This applies to other key apps like Google Navigation, and many more.
- Duplicates are pruned out. Spotify is a well-known app that will send the exact same information to the notification bar. Augmented SmartWatch Pro will filter these duplicates out. Other apps will simply relay the notification to the watch (thereby overwhelming the watch with many duplicate messages).
- Intelligent filtering based on actual daily use. Useless information (like being on a skype call) are filtered out in Augmented SmartWatch Pro.
- Quiet Time Option – ability to automatically disable notifications to the Smart Watch during the night time.
- Stealth Mode – ability to show only the title/sender of notifications and not the details of the notification for situations when your Smart Watch is “public”
- Root support in Augmented SmartWatch Pro for even more useful information:
Whatsapp – the ability to see every chat message (not just the count of messages if the first one is unread). Plus the ability to filter out group chat messages;
GMail – the ability to see the sender, subject and preview of every email
Exchange (for some devices) – the ability to see the sender, subject and preview of every email.
Try the trial version @ http://bit.ly/11pnamX (for the Pebble/Sony/MetaWatch and MotoACTV smart watches) and compare with other apps that do notifications and see why Augmented SmartWatch Pro is the ultimate app for your Smart Watch!
