Hey guys, I've made a lot of progress with the complication but I ran into a problem and was wondering if you guys had any thoughts

What's up?

Complications have a rate limit for the sake of battery life
I'm not sure what it is, but I think the amount this complication would ideally refresh is too much.
also, you said you were a designer, correct?
It would be good if we could skype or something and discuss what you want for the designs of the other complication families
Also, it would nice to know what your rules are for coloring

sounds good
Coloring? Currently the app uses the server’s thresholds (i.e. User defined)

how can I grab those?
and with respect to talking about the designs, what times are good for you?
Pete

That's modular small
We still need modular large, util. small, util. large, and circ. small

what about stacked text… could we fit delta
maybe
which code base you working with?
Eric Martin
@ericmarkmartin
Nov 19 2015 03:11
that is stacked text
Pete
@someoneAnyone
Nov 19 2015 03:12
I would do the number first then the direction
the small ring but didn’t have it closed we could fake up down and flat… not sure about doubles though
Eric Martin
@ericmarkmartin
Nov 19 2015 03:14
But the ring takes a filled fraction, not a start and stop interval
Pete

@ericmarkmartin , Do I have this right? When we pick a template for a complication we can only pick one type per family, right?
for example, I can’t have CLKComplicationTemplateCircularSmallStackImage
and CLKComplicationTemplateCircularSmallStackText, I need to pick one right?
Eric Martin
@ericmarkmartin
Nov 19 2015 18:30
correct
i can talk now if that works for you
actually, never mind. I'll be available later
Pete
@someoneAnyone
Nov 19 2015 18:34
I’m thinknig we can do something meaning full with:
CLKComplicationTemplateModularSmallStackText
CLKComplicationTemplateModularLargeStandardBody
CLKComplicationTemplateUtilitarianSmallFlat
CLKComplicationTemplateUtilitarianLargeFlat
CLKComplicationTemplateCircularSmallStackText
Eric Martin
@ericmarkmartin
Nov 19 2015 18:35
Sounds good
Pete
@someoneAnyone
Nov 19 2015 18:35
andI guess we could detemine if multiple sites are available before we delvier the ModularLarge and could do a CLKComplicationTemplateModularLargeColumns
Eric Martin
@ericmarkmartin
Nov 19 2015 18:35
The bigger question is what to do with multiple sites and small complications
Is there some setting we can add to the app where the user can choose which site to view?
Also, you should keep in mind that when you design these, tintcolor doesn't always affect the entire complication
Pete
@someoneAnyone
Nov 19 2015 19:24
i think we’ll have to
same problem with the glance.
i was thinking of adding a force touch menu on the watch to set a specfic site as the one for glances and complications
on the iphone side we could something similar in the settings for a site. like the screen overside toggle.

Ok. I wonder if you could do a table view with checkmarks in the settings app.
