Our five favorite uses for the Flic smart button
Flic is a smart button that can work with tons of random stuff.
This thing works with platforms like IFTT and Tasker, so it can control your apps and your devices.
But after a few days of working with Flic, I wanted to show you five of my favorite uses with this device right here.
The first place I put a flick was on the inside of my front door, so anytime I'm leaving the house I can press it once and it'll turn off all the lights in the house.
If I'm trying to get out of the house fast and I can't find my phone, I can press this flick twice and my phone will sound, so I can find it even if it fell out between the couch cushions.
I usually use my phone as my music player in the car, but being distracted while driving is really dangerous.
So I put a Flick in the car and now with a couple of taps, I can play my music, I can go back or I can skip songs.
Communication while driving can also be a distraction.
But, by installing a flick, I can send a text to my significant other saying I'm on my way home.
I can answer a call, or, if I have an Android device, I can have my phone read me incoming texts.
Finally, you can use a clip that comes with a Flick To use it as a safety wearable.
Whether you're a kid, an elderly person, or you're just a student who has to walk across campus alone at night, this device lets you press a button to send your GPS location to a trusted Trusted friend or family member in case of emergency.
These are only five of the many functions the Flick can perform.
While I'd like to see more features, where you can, say, order food.
Or control devices like, say, your TV.
I'm really happy with what they've got now and I'm excited to see the future of this product.
