Trigger Launcher Trigger in v1.38

Post by skiptannen » 22 Aug 2020 15:39

Maybe I'm just brain dead but I can't figure out what the new trigger Launcher Trigger would be used for. After creating a test flow using that trigger and a Debug Dialog condition, I found that typing "Launcher Trigger" in the Nova Launcher search box would trigger the flow. Unfortunately, that didn't help me get a better grasp of its use. The only thing I can figure is you could launch a flow by creating a launcher shortcut named "Launcher Trigger" but that would be redundant - it would be the same thing as creating a custom AM shortcut. Can anyone tell me if they are using this trigger for anything or what it would be useful for?

Thank you.

It is mostly for app which doesn't support "Launch Shortcut". viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7942

Bixby can only "launch" app, not shortcut. Hence, this trigger is created to accomodate that.

Hello

Desmanto is correct. Bixby works with it.

Or just click on it in your launcher like an app.

I've just noticed it can launch multiple flows. I don't see a particular use for this yet, but it's interesting.

Many thanks

Micky
Crude but it works.
