Ratings and Reviews
Great product, great utility, but there’s a persistent bug
I use my flic button to control my music in my old car, which is phenomenal because it turns it in to a basically handsfree system. I have it stuck on my dashboard and set up with my iPhone 8.
Developers PLEASE READ: roughly ⅓ of the time when I first get in the car and try to use it, the app will not execute my music commands. I’ve tried lots of troubleshooting, but even when it doesn’t execute commands, the button is still connected to my phone (as evidenced by the “Connected” status in my Bluetooth settings). I’ll even open the flic app and it will show that the button is connected, but will not recognize presses. Sometimes, it counts presses and still doesn’t execute. I’ve found the only way to get it to work when this happens is to turn my Bluetooth (totally) off in settings and then turn it back on and ensure it’s connected in the flic app. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries. It’s incredibly frustrating because I never know when it’s going to happen, and it defeats the goal of not using my phone while driving. Hopefully you can address this bug!
Works well enough, but playlist sub folders are buggy
I use this primarily to switch between playlists, but my playlists are organized into folders - some of which are more than 1 level deep. It works great for all the music on the first two "levels" in the Playlist filesystem. The Flic app shows me all the music in the Playlist list AND all the music in any sub-folders, as expect. But if I go any deeper than that (say, into a sub-sub-folder), I see nothing. It's just a blank page - no music and the search bar is no longer responsive.
I will upgrade this to 5 stars if this is fixed. In order to use this I have to reorganize all my playlists such there are no songs more than 1 folder down, which is prohibitive.
Fun surprise tho: if your playlists are set to shuffle by default, then binding a Flic button to them and clicking it will auto-shuffle the songs before playing the playlist.
Like a light switch, but on steroids
I know the Flic buttons can do more, but I primarily use them to control lights. Each button can control 3 different functions or scenes - press once to turn lights on low, twice for full brightness or press and hold to din the lights and turn on some music... you get the idea. Flic can be used instead of Alexa or apps or augment them. They’re small and can be easily moved around or attached to anything - no DIY skills needed. I’ve also had occasion to contact customer support and found them to be responsive and helpful.
