uiopen for directly starting slide show

Postby tezzlicious » Wed Apr 29, 2020 4:41 am

Hi there,

Is it possible to directly start a slide show, without user intervention through an uiopen:// link?

Thanks.

Hi sorry for the delay, somehow I missed this post.
This currently isn't possible, because it would take quite a bit of work to make all of the options possible.
What exactly is your use-case?
Please write a review for Wifibooth on the Apple App store! Indie developers like me really need people like you to review their apps. Instructions on how to write a review: http://goo.gl/w8NsDI.

I have a few dedicated phones for home automation purposes and in idle I start SoloSlides to make them look like a digital photo frame. They are jailbroken and I use macro's to open apps and simulate touches. But every now and then the touches seem to miss and the slideshow doesn't start. 😉With an uiopen link it would work every single time. Just one option to start the Google Slide show with current settings would help a lot.

OK beta build available with the two schemes:
soloslides://google
... to open directly to google slideshow (reuses last settings, well, the settings that are remembered at least)
soloslides://cameraroll
... to open directly to cam roll slideshow

please try it out: https://testflight.apple.com/join/G0pVsb5U

works for you?

You sir just made my day. It works really smooth, no more missed button presses. Just lovely photos of my family and friends!

Thanks for all your hard work Tim.

I've accepted the beta also and will be testing regularly other builds.

Ha awesome, you're welcome!
The URL schemes are live in the app store too (in 1.5.3), since we had to release a hotfix for an Apple compiler bug that broke SoloSlides on 1000+ ARMv7 devices :shock:
