    Yes if you're conscious - no need for an app there - Chances are that you're not and need help from bystanders.

    But if you are unconscious one would hope the bystanders would concentrate on saving your life rather than fiddling with your phone.

    Quite some resistance...... sorry for wasting your time.

    If you're in case of real emergency I hope by then the information will be available to those standing by not knowing what to do just watching that one reluctant person doing cpr or whatever he/she thinks is necessary or capable of, emergency services be guessing and your loved ones to be informed.....

    Or.... have anothers be well informed to help you ... tic toc...tic toc...tic toc....



  • Hey Guys come on it's hard to find best configuration. That's why I added section Pros and Cons.
    We should consider every fact beginning form stress ending on bad android design.

    Yes we definitely need this feature

    The form of it, list of features is hard to design. That's why we should discuss and give arguments for and against, to find best configuration, together.

    BTW updated 1st post. 😉



  • My advice from my day job as software dev: User experience needs to be tested with users, that means to make mockups or click dummies, and then see a) if users understand the idea b) how they like it. For such features like this one where there are different opinions this would make sense.



  • Great to see that the community is taking this request seriously as per last week's Q&A.

    Having a good and flexible lock screen app would be really helpfull. I'm well aware that developing an extensive flexible lock screen will consume a lot of time, eventhough there are many good examples out there being used on other platforms.

    On the other hand, by doing so it would be a great way to create more exposure, after all it's the first screen potential users would be attracted to. Frankly I believe it would make a huge difference and a much better way to 'show of' my device to family, friend and potential users.

    @BigB thanks for keep amending the original post.



  • I had a little time this morning and I left on a completely different idea!

    I started by creating an "indicator" in that all the information deemed necessary by the user will be displayed.

    Then when I have a little more time I would look for this indicator to appear when clicking on a button on the lockscreen.

    So here it may not be what you wanted but the application will at least have the merit of existing!

    I repeat that it was done quickly this morning so it's not very beautiful!

    This is absolutely great!
    I applaud you for being involved and finding creative solutions to problems 👏

    Thank you for taking the time and I hope you will continue building on this idea.

    On a positive critical note for quick improvement regarding exposure I'd like to suggest the following

    Used symbol
    The heart symbol may be to generic and could be replaced by one that is immediately recognizable for emergency cases. Although I'm not familiar with UT layout regulations on do's and don'ts there are emoticons available such as 🆘 and ⚕ (or a dedicated symbol could be added to the emoticon list) and possible uploading your own preferred symbol based on Red Cross with ICE indicator or medical star would be even better.

    placement and highlighting in icon top bar
    It would be great to have the icon be placed on the left side of the top bar, upper left or right to notifications as the latter is probably the most used icon. Personally I think the ICE icon is worth of having it highlighted in red or blue by default (depending on chosen symbol). Others may want it less prominent, perhaps there could be an option to have a slider 'logo dimmed on/off'?



  • @3T_Ed All requests are noted;) I will see what I can do as soon as I have time again





  • @syper Great start and well done. Agree on changing the symbol. Only the heart shows on OP3 not sure if there is ice under it. Then which symbol? one of the staff types? the caduceus or rod of Asclepius maybe.
    Still great work and thanks to all involved from initial idea through to working indicator in the OpenStore.



  • @syper
    Brilliant!! Very happy you made the first ICE app in the Open Store. A great addition to the top bar, thank you so much! Looking forward to further improvements. Thanks to fellow members as well who kept this thread going to this point and hopefully will keep contributing.

    @Lakotaubp
    On my OPO 3T the heart is showing as a heart (next to 'notifications', in the app store @syper mentioned changes to the icon on the to-do list). When pulling the top menu down on the heart the heart changes to 'heart + ICE'. The odd thing here is that when pulling the menu is pulled down the heart is relocated to another position (in my case 4th from the left), no idea why. Would love to be able to assign the shortcut icon positions myself.

    As for the Aesculapius, that would be a good icon for the 'Medical information' field (currently being a magnifying glass).



  • @3T_Ed Being a bit picky my concern is that seeing a heart does not make you think medical more like favourite or such. As most people would not know that you can pull down on indicator bar it might get ignored. A more recognized medical symbol might get them to at least tap at it and then seeing some movement investigate further.

    Fully agreed. See my earlier comment (links), ICE cross or Medical star symbol or SOS (in that order imho) would be better depending on UT design options/restrictions and visibility.



  • Updated 1st post
    First of all big thanks for @syper! 🙂 It's amazing!!!

    I haven't added screenshots of @syper project because of there will be some key changes(?).



  • Hi everyone, sorry as warned I unfortunately don't have a lot of time.
    Indeed the next changes will be the icons.

    I promise I won't forget you;)



  • @3T_Ed I agree. Maybe something like this? Or find some inspiration here: https://thenounproject.com/search/?q=medical emergency

    medical emergency star

    Nice one, should be added to the short list. Could you provide a direct link to the symbol you posted above? I could not find that particular one, would like to see that creator other uploads.

    Any reason we should get the symbol from www.nounproject.com website? Are we bound to that project when it comes to selecting icons for UT/topbar?

    I found it here: https://www.iconfinder.com/search/?q=medical emergency
    Direct link is https://www.iconfinder.com/icons/6084448/emergency_medical_medicine_icon

    I have no knowledge of that. I just figured it would be a good source of inspiration, because many of their icons are small and simple, so they can be used in small sizes and still be recognizable.



  • I just looked up international medical signs. That should get you a generic list of symbols. You might find you need a choice to cover for different parts of the world.



  • @Lakotaubp Any useful results you can point us to? 'Symbol' might yield better results than 'sign' here...

    I found the Wikipedia page for the star symbol above, it's apparently called the Star of Life: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_Life
    The fact that it's recognised in multiple countries could make it a good choice.

    A search for 'star of life' on the Noun Project gives some nice results: https://thenounproject.com/search/?q=star of life

    I like this one a lot:

    Star of Life
