LOL I haven’t beta tested in a while, this reminds me of that.
Happy to help. I appreciate the help ya’ll gave me! Love the watchface that works!
(Normally I go for a lot more complications on my watchfaces, but days when I have migraines, I go for a simple pic - brain can’t handle more than that )
Sorry to hear you suffer with migraine. Sorry we can not have relaxing animations on the Apple Watches.
That’s well weird you can’t sync any of my Faces You’re using a legit, properly downloaded version of the Facer App on your Phone to sync yes?
I am. Even paying for premium membership. Also have a recently reset apple 7.
It could be me.
I did try using different browsers on my computer. Gonna try from phone. Have iPhone 12 pro max.
Ok- works fine from phone, no problems at all.
So now I know most of my issues are probably the browsers and the no ad addons.
Next step will be disabling those.
That’s cool, still very strange you can’t sync a lot of Faces though. I just Published 3 more using different artwork form the same artist we used first lol
Let me reset my browsers and I can try again from the computer.
Phone works great
Thanks for the empathy. I find workarounds to keep things going. I just do less.
Jo . Remember you watch is connected to your Phone via Bluetooth . Although You could be asking for a Sync on another device it is your Connected Phone that sends it to the watch . Pleas do not keep resetting things . That is a lot of work . A reboot is often Helpful but I think there is something else going on . It would be really good if an Apple & owner chipped in here . But we will get it sorted.
You need to switch on a lot of permissions for Facer and Apple to work together. I am not sure where you find them but when you do switch them all on . Ask your Phone Not to Manage Power to Facer Automatically .
Oh! No, I only reset it that one time. I do not keep resetting because that is a pain - and frankly, if it doesn’t fix it once, it ain’t gonna.
I found out some of the issues, still working on a couple.
If I am on Facer on my phone… no problems. I can get, favorite and sync without any issues.
My problems are when I am trying to do this off my computer. THEN I have problems galore! I thought it was the browser, so I switched a couple times (I have a few). Then I thought it might be the adblockers messing with the sync… AND… I am still working on trying to make this work.
My computer is running Microsoft Windows 11. Updated. Decent hardware, but not gaming quality.
I had it on a couple of times where it would work from the computer to my phone… and obviously to the watch.
The break is getting it to work from the computer to the phone.
I took my adblockers off Microsoft Edge (cause that is the easiest and I hardly ever use it) - no soap.
I have Brave and Firefox, but if I have to install Chrome I can. (Chrome just isn’t great for privacy)
So now I hope you have a better picture of what I am working with. Not to worry, I am not resetting my watch over and over. Once was enough (and that was to fix a bug when something wasn’t working.)
Looks like you’re sorting it all out for yourself there, well done
Jo I have tried Firefox. If you are not keen on Google . I think you are up against the age old problem . Microsoft VS Apple . Are you running Win11 on IOS or on a MS PC ?
Apple laptops use Linux, Microsoft or Google use Windows lol
Some run a Windows Emulator on their Apple Mac IOS machines . I did not Know or had forgotten that IOS was Linux .
Actually, I have a dual boot system. I have Linux Mint and Microsoft 11.
Obviously since I built this it is a PC.
Brave is a browser that is based on Chrome but is used by Duck Duck Go. Privacy features built in. Which makes it difficult for me to use on some websites which is why I keep Edge - Firefox also has privacy features that make some websites difficult and sometimes both of them are unruly.
So stupid Edge. Blah. I hate that stupid browser. Stupid Bing. Don’t get me started.
What I can try is to access Facer from Linux and see if that works better. Hey, it’s worth a shot. But that would be limiting the audience since I am not sure how many Linux users would use Facer (but what do I know? I could look it up.)
Let me boot on over, and I can try from there.
It will not matter what system people are using . Everything goes up to The Facer Server from Creator . Ultimately it comes back to the watch as some form of Java I believe . So the Designers system is irrelevant . What we find is that different watches have different short comings . Each to their own .
Apple does use a UNIX kernel… (sorry, edit) Linux is loosely based on UNIX
It may help. Dunno.
Seems someone else has synced it without any issues -
@icrltd4. Are you signed up to Beta or do you not bother these days. I wonder if that is the Variable.
Well may be that is the difference . I always try to stay on Beta :::)))
