Use volume buttons when screen is off
Is it possible to use the volume buttons to take laps while my screen is turned off? I use this app in an unconventional way (concert production) and I need to be able to take song timings ("laps") when it isn't appropriate for my phone to be on.
Great to hear. Let me know if it works well for you.
Thanks for the very quick reply! This sounds like exactly what I need.
To be more precise, Apple doesn’t give any access to apps at all when the screen is off (unless you’re a music playing app). So I’ve simulated it in the last release with a “Blackout mode”. When you enable this mode and start a watch with the volume control, then the screen is disabled, and goes black except for one line of text. You can enter “a “lap” by pressing up-Volume, and when done, you press down-Volume which turns the screen back on.
Hope that helps.
