Hi dancer,
what can i say ... it crashes as there are no paired devices on your device.

I apologize for this, forgot to try a case like this on my phone as its not possible to test on the simulator.

Anyway, i have uploaded the 1.3.1 so if you want to try it please downloading it again.

Yes, I changed my rom recently and I haven't pair my bluetooth.
I will try the new version.

Works fine now.

Μιας και είναι ελληνική ή εφαρμογή, γιατί να μην είναι και στα ελληνικά?

Ευχαριστω για τα σχολια dancer.
Its a good suggestion to support other languages than englsh.

I am going to upload the xml file with the strings and anyone will be welcome to change it and match his/her mother language.

It appears to be working on Gingerbread, on my HD2.

This app will come in very handy, as GB on the HD2 has a 60mA idle drain with Bluetooth, and I use Bluetooth in my car, so this will help alot.

I will test it over the next day or 2 and report back.

Thanks for the work

Awesome App! Love the bluettoth features and how the flash will blink on an incomming call if turned over.

One request would be to have wifi turn off once no longer in range/connected for like 5 minutes.

Something kind of weird happened. I had my phone on vibrate, and when the call finally connected to the phone, the vibrate started and there was no light, and then when the light started, the vibrate stopped. Is there any ways to have both or is there a specific reason you chose one at a time?

Awesome feature though. Thanks for the hard work. Keep it up.

wow this is a great tool! i have only tried the incoming call flash feature and it works great. I have not tested the blue tooth function tho.

Tested on Dell Streak with DJSteve's 1.8.1 rom.

keep up the dev!
