Hey Bobby is a simple notification app for getting the attention of someone using a Bluetooth keyring button.

Setup the app on your phone and provide a Bluetooth LE keyring button to someone who needs to get your attention. When the button is clicked, if the app is open, you’ll see an alert. If the app is in the background, you’ll receive a push notification, which when tapped opens the alert.

There are 3 click levels that correspond to alert severity:

  • 1 click – green (not urgent)
  • 2 clicks – amber (urgent)
  • 3 clicks – red (emergency)
