KNOWN ISSUE - SAMSUNG - TALK BACK

On some Samsung phones (for example Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note) enabling our Accessibility Service causes the phone to speak actions like "folder opened" (-> enabling the TalkBack feature, even if it is turned off). This is a bug in Samsung's TouchWiz interface. We can't do anything about it and have to wait for Samsung to fix it. Many other apps suffer from this bug. You can follow the bug report here:
http://developer.samsung.com/forum/thread/samsung-devices-and-accessibility-services/77/204387

Some of our users told us that a workaround is to disable Samsung TTS in Settings > Apps > All Apps.

FAQ

Q: Why do I have enable the accessibility service?
A: Android does not allow access to the notifications by default. Using a accessibility service allows our app to bypass this restriction.

Q: Why do some notifications like downloads and battery information create so many notifications on the desktop?
A: Because our access to the notifications is very limited every single change to a notification (like the download progress) looks like a new notification to our app. You can disable annoying apps in the settings of our Android app.

Q: Enabling the accessibility service causes TalkBack to be activated.
A: Please read the KNOWN ISSUE paragraph above.

Q: How can I stop the "Choose input method" notifications?
A: This notification is created by Android every time the keyboard is opened. To stop it open the settings in our Android app and disable "Android System".

Q: It does not work!
A: Please make sure you enabled the accessibility service and double check the code in the Chrome extension. If the problem persists you can contact us at hcilab@gmail.com.

Q: Can I pair multiple devices?
A: We just added basic functionality to pair multiple devices in the browser extensions. Just enter (up to 3) codes separated by commas (no spaces) and you will receive notifications from all devices. For example CODE1,CODE2
