Core: customize screen timeout/sleep setting#34

J

Hey! Me and lot of my friends complain about the lack of this option. It would be great if you could set in the settings time when the screen turns off. Personally when I use metronome I would like to see the bars, tempo etc. Unfortunately right now it turns off after around 30 seconds. Please add an option so you can set if it turns off after 30sec - 1 minute - 5 minutes or never.

It would help a lot

Thanks

Hello! The reason we disable the screen is due to the battery life. We found turning the screen off improved the duration the metronome can run quite a bit. So there is this tradeoff. If there is enough demand to add this feature, we could add a switch to the device settings in the app that explains the tradeoff and allows you disable the feature that the screen turns itself off automatically while the metronome is running!

Any update on this feature for Android?

Hi, Android is also released. But to become active a firmware update is required (Version 1.7.0 for Core 1 and Core 2). We are still working on step tracking in the Core firmware and hope it can be ready in the next ~7 days. We will then bundle all these features in a release so people don’t have to update the firmware of their Core so often.
