I have mostly avoided playing around with my android phone programmatically since I don't know of good ways to quickly script stuff. Also since my laptop is going to be the machine, my phone only has to be a tiny terminal so I don't want to understand how to write stuff for android.
- Custom commands to run on laptop.
- Sharing links from mobile to laptop.
The more important point is that I can now partially offload scripting–the–mobile part to the laptop. With access to mobile notifications, I can finally automate a lot of things like (I still need to hijack the notification daemon in my machine):
- Scheduling up calls when missed (this happens a lot).
- Capturing messages to respond to from apps that don't allow programmatic read/write access (like signal).
- Logging transactions in something like ledger from financy SMSes.
Things like sending SMS from command line are also nifty though I don't know if people (not programs) write SMSes these days.
To be honest, none of these are new. A lot of these (and more) were already there when I used a combination of Windows and vendor specific mobile-pc softwares. The good thing with KDE connect is that it's freer and more hackable than a lot of bloatware alternatives.
