{sms_text} is null

Post by shawntan » 20 Apr 2013 04:44

Hi guys,

I loved Automagic. especially the UI area. Much easier to use than tasker and have tonnes of features compared to AutomateIT etc. So far so good until I am stumped on reading out my text messages. I am currently using Samsung galaxy Note 2. I tried to get my device read out SMS loud using the variable {sms_text} when I receive sms but i get a "Null" value.

Can someone help me on this ? I tried to look at forum helps but to no avail.

Thanks much !!!

Flow works for me after I set my music volume up. My sms_text is not null. Do you have a non standard sms app installed?
