Bluetooth Voice Dial Widget

Bluetooth Voice Dial Widget


No hands-free voice dial button on your Bluetooth headset or car audio system? This app provides 4 alternatives:

* Home Screen Widget. Press the button to simulate a hands-free button, which starts the Bluetooth Voice Dialer. Four sizes: 1x1, 2x1, 3x1, and 4x1.

* Optionally simulate a hands-free button press when you use a Bluetooth AVCRP media button (play / pause, next, or last)

* A shortcut (and car home shortcut) that simulates a hands-free button, and starts the Bluetooth Voice Dialer

Troubleshooting:

Some phones don't support Bluetooth voice dialing at all. Every phone and bluetooth device is different. Not all combinations will work. You'll have to try it for yourself to see if it will work.

Some car stereos do not send the forward/backward media button events until after the play button is pressed once.

LG G2x modifies the Car Home app such that you cannot add custom shortcuts.

Recent changes:
More optimistic in detection of headset connected state. Due to android limitation this feature may not behave 100% perfectly. There is not an API to query if a headset is connected; instead the app must listen to headset connection events. In some cases event may not line up with actual connected state, but this occurs usually only at first when setting up a Bluetooth device.

Simple but effective I've spent the better part of two days trying out apps, that were supposed to dial my android phone, both paid and free, and this is the first one I found that actually WORKED. I don't understand the low rating unless it's folks that want their smart phones to bring them breakfast in bed or something. Sometimes the simple things are the best. I'll be giving these folks a donation, you can count on that.

Did not work well Droid3 with pioneer AVH-P2400BT. Voice command would activate periodically without pushing a button. If I used the widget only it seemed to work fine.
