Default [GAME] Scan Most Bluetooth Devices 1.5.2

Hello Guys,
Today I want to present you my first developed game for Android and I want to say hello to this really nice community.

I want to tell you how it operates.

At first it checks that Bluetooth is available.
Then it reads the user data of the found devices.
Then the discovery process starts and it searches for devices.
When it finds one, it will be added to the list of founded devices, so that it will not beeing marked as a new device when finding it again.
Then the data will be uploaded to the central ranking server and the script will return the current ranking of your device and the number of devices, that have a rank.
There is also a level system. You have to find a set number of devices to get into the new level. This number is shown just the same as the number of devices you have found.
With the achievement system you can unlock game features and with the settings you can personalize your game.
The scoreboard shows the complete rankings, also with a nice addition, that every user that was active in the last 5 minutes will be marked as 'Searching' (Needs an achievement to see).

Please give any critique you can.

Thanks for sharing!!

HTC Butterfly 2 coming! - HTC One M8 - HTC Universal

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site

This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

I still want a program that will connect to Bluetooth devices and send them up to 130 characters I think it was, like I had for my HTC Tilt. Never worked on the Tilt 2, never seen anything like it for the Nexus. Was fun to walk around in crowded places and send stuff to strangers.
AT&T LG G2 - 4.4.4, AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.4, AOKP (m-kernel)

This app is funny, just miss 2 things (or I didn't find them ^^)

1. Telling user the name of the access point, not only the MAC address (as you said, there's some funny ones )

2. Knowing who's next to me I know I'm 4th, but I don't know who's 3rd, nor who's 5th. I even didn't put my nickname in it, how am I suppose to go in front of my friends and say "Hey, look at that, Khoral's 1st. BLUETOOTH HEADSHOT ! MAC ADDRESS MONSTER KILL !". You know what I mean

Nice app, can you make the UI compatible for higher resolutions? (I have a Toshiba folio 100 tablet).
