[RELEASE] Life360 Tracker - Works with the Paid and Free versions of Life360!


#42

The google map URL isn't clickable on the iPhone, however. That's a shortfall of the HE App though. I hate how they have notifications hidden under settings. That's should be a first class citizen.

(sarcasm)Get a REAL phone, works great on my Pixel XL :grin:(/sarcasm) lol

On my pixel, the message that shows up in the header dropdown, isn't clickable. I have to click on the message and then it opens in pushover... then the link is clickable.

Haven't tried it using the HE app. Probably should.


#44

Pushover is more feature rich. I should go back to it for pushes.


#45

@bptworld Any luck on figuring out how to get it to announce the leaving of a place? Just curious.
Yesterday it missed my wife entering the Home zone completely so no announcement.


#46

Too nice out, can't bring my chromebook into the pool :sunglasses: but it's suppose to rain out this afternoon.

Just wanted to let you know that I use the free Life360 and have now installed Life360 Tracker Free. I also updated Life360 with states app and driver.

I will play with this as time permits. I'm to the point I have it installed and a few places defined (wouldn't it be nice if place definition was common to all children?), and am ready to see what I can do with it. Thanks again.

@bptworld

Think I found a bug (typo) in the Life360 Tracker Free child app. I could not get any speaker options to show for departing.

Looking at your code, Lines 118-127 has the variable "speakHasDepated" but line 144 that checks for the variable has "speakHasDeparted".

To test, I changed the variable name and it works like a champ! This is such a cool app BTW!

@bptworld

Thanks. One other question. Under Track Specific dropdown and Show a list view of Specific Places, mine always shows null. When/How do they populate? I have several place names saved in the Life360 app but none are showing.


#52

I wonder if it is possible, using the browser link, to pop open Life360 instead of google maps?


#53

You have to type them in. :sunglasses:

I have no idea on this one. I try to look into it though.


#54

Well I guess that makes sense :joy::joy::joy: I don't know why I thought that was automatic...

Yep. There they are!


#55

lol


#56

Could this be automated if I made the places map available to the child device?


#57

Good idea. yeah, if it's available then I should be able to pull it in.


#58

Does it need to be an attribute or will a variable work?


#59

attribute


#60

@bptworld

So I have a Life360 Tracker Free child set up. I have Track Specific selected and I have chosen a place from my list. Right now, I only have Pushover notification selected. However, I did not receive any notifications today of arrival or departure.

Do I have to enable the Speak on Departure/Arrival even though I am not using a Speech device?

#61

Nope, it should work without it, I'll take a look at in the morning. I do have another update tonight though...
