Email client

  • Uses Email service to send emails with attachments.
  • Uses file dialog to browse for attachments from the file system and the file object to read the file.

Depending on the hardware, sensors can produce a large number of events. If the application freezes when reading sensor data, try setting the Phonebot "Sensor buffer" to a lower value.

Time tracker

Keep track of how much time you spend on different tasks. Create task types to categorize tasks. Use timer to start and stop tasks. View a list of every task or a summary of how much time was spent on each task type.
