StageCaller Android (alpha21)

StageCaller Android drifts from the iOS version starting today. I’ve rebuilt how actions work.

Prior to alpha21, we had Sound and Vibration actions. In alpha21 I’ve added in Call actions which act like fake calls to the device.

Vibration actions now require a vibration pattern. Patterns are defined as strings of numbers separated by either a comma, period, or dash (I’ll have to fix this later).

So the following pattern:

0,500,200,800,200,500,200,800

says:

  • wait 0 milliseconds
  • vibrate for 500 milliseconds
  • wait 200 milliseconds
  • vibrate for 800 milliseconds
  • wait 200 milliseconds
  • vibrate for 500 milliseconds
  • wait 200 milliseconds
  • vibrate for 800 milliseconds
  • wait 200 milliseconds

Call actions require a ‘caller’ to be setup – which is simply a name and phone number – it can be any number… in fact it can be any text. For the time being I’m also inserting these fake call actions into the device call log. I’m not really sure why. It was just something to do.

So, now that we have Call actions, I’ve removed the ‘swipe to stop’ feature from the action editor and from future development (at least on android – we’ll see what happens with the iOS version when I get around to updating it)
