The Flic Mac app is an essential tool for any Apple computer owner. From productivity and presentation apps to music and smart home control, create shortcuts triggered by the push of a Flic button. Just like you would on your phone, but even better: unlock Mac-specific actions you don’t have on your phone.
We’ve fixed some bugs and updated the Mac app’s features for an even smoother experience. Just pair your Flic button and add actions as you would in the phone app. Here are some of our favorite actions:
Keynote: Fully control your presentation with Flic as a clicker, like Tim Cook should have done in the recent Apple Keynote opening film.
Spotify: Play/pause your music or skip to the next song with the push of a button. No phone needed.
LIFX: These amazing smart lights now work through a local network connection. This means that turning your lights on/off has literally almost no delay.
Keyboard Maestro: Simulate any key press or combination. Ideal for making keyboard shortcuts even shorter!
It’s also a great way to add interactivity to your project with no programming skills needed. We used Keyboard Maestro to make an easy way to choose a video to watch at our stand at the CES fair last year.
IFTTT: The sky is the limit! The Mac app now supports IFTTT tags too. Here are some of the applets Flic users love.
Xcode: Run, Build, Clean… Shortcuts every developer needs while coding.
Speaking about coding, we’re about to launch a new integration in the Flic app you’ll love… Stay tuned 😉
Here’s a list of changes in version 1.1.3:
– New: LIFX Local Network action
– Improved: IFTTT tag feature now supported
– Improved: Keynote now supports Start/Stop presentation
– Fixed: IKEA action now supports latest bridge firmware
