Recording in Notification area

xpj shared this idea 6 years ago
Completed

Hi all,

Not sure whether this idea is already there, but I think it will be really great to extend Recording notification with pause and stop buttons. It is now standard in different music applications (like soundcloud or poweramp).

Screenshot with current recording notification and some music app attached.

Thanks,

Pavel

I think that this would be an useful feature.

In my opinion, though, the clicking on the notification should open Locus and then there should be 2 buttons (notification actions):

- Pause/Resume on the left (you can use it to pause recording for example when going indoor where GPS precision is lower)

- Add waypoint on the right (to add a named waypoint on the current track)


I would not like to have the Stop recording there, because you may click it accidentally. Instead it's better to click the notification and open Locus and stop there.


Also, as these two buttons replicate the two on the widget exactly, it shouldn't be difficult for Menion to do it.


Thanks!

In the latest v3.14 the Stop action button has been added!

It would be great to have also the Pause/Resume button, because you normally use it when entering inside buildings.

or when you just stoped for a break in the middle of the road/trail.

Oki, added also a "pause" button, agree that it may be useful.

On screenshot from xpj is visible that music app has these buttons directly in a small notification panel. But such buttons will reduce a lot visible texts. Does it worth it?

Because I don't think so. And if all will leave control buttons in notification only as visible in virtualdj screenshot. So only in case, Locus track record notification is first in list (may be affected by settings when you long click on this notification).

I would prefer a button added in the expanded notification (as in the current version) because if you haven't got space you can always compact the notification.

The current widget in locus can manage well the recording of the track and is always present in the selected page, while the notification is one among many.

Except small issue with color of buttons on dark notification background, I think that task is completed.

Hi Menion,


Thanks for this. It looks good and works as expected.
