In this new version (1.5) we have focused on showing more interesting information on your screen gathered from different sources.
In order to add more interesting content to your always-on smart screen, we have added a new Tiles page and expended our integration options. WhizScreen can now display information as reported by SmartThings connected devices. We have also added integration with the Nest Thermostat so you can see the temperature on your screen.
Use the new Tiles page to create a screen that is customized to your taste. The Tiles page allows you to:
- See the local time as well as the time in any other city in the world (i.e. world clock)
- See your room temperature, the target temperature and heating/cooling state as reported by your Nest Thermostat
- See temperature (or any other metric) reported by smart sensors that are connected to your SmartThings hub
- See a quote of the day, top 5 box office movies, new movies or your RSS feed
In addition to the Tiles page we have revamped the UI. We have also improved the Kitchen page, just tap the Directions label and WhizScreen will show the ingredients of your favorite recipe.
Last but not least, WhizScreen is all about home automation, as such we have redesigned our home automation integration page, we hope that the new page will help our users in connecting WhizScreen with their smart devices and smart services.
We hope you will enjoy this new version.
