BTmono - Premium

BTmono - Premium


Everybody: Please don't buy the app under the assumption that a future update will make it work. If it doesn't work now, it's an issue with your handset's firmware that is almost certainly not fixable from the app's side. This whole program is more of a hack than anything else - the function is clearly not officially supported by Google. I can't guarantee that it will work for any given phone and/or BT headset.

Simple app to stream audio to your bluetooth mono headset.

Requires Android 2.2 or higher. Tested on stock HTC Evo 4G ROM (2.2) and CM7 RC1. Leave feedback and ask questions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=950472


Features:
- Change your Android's color
- Auto restart after phone call
- Widget!!
- Automatically enable Bluetooth on app launch (user can still choose not to allow this). Make sure your headset is actually CONNECTED before hitting 'On.'
- In-app 'Media Volume' control. Adjust the 'Bluetooth In-Call Volume' using the physical buttons on your phone or headset.
- Ongoing Status Bar notification while the program is running.
- Automatic turn on at app launch available via Menu-->Preferences. Note - if enabled your headset must be connected before running BTmono.
- ICS (Android 4.0) support including use of Holo theme.
- Limited Skype support (if enabled after call is started). Please note - microphone routing is not possible on Samsung phones and may not be possible on GSM phones - sorry.

Notes:
- Make sure your headset is connected BEFORE clicking 'On'
- To use with Skype you must enable BTmono AFTER starting a Skype call. Microphone routing does not appear to be possible on Samsung phones (without some ugly hacks, at least) because of Samsung's efforts to prevent phone call recording. Microphone routing may also be impossible on GSM phones due to API limitations. Please don't rate the program lowly due to this - Skype support is not the point of this app!
- To reduce static, set the 'Media Volume' slider to max and reduce the 'Bluetooth In-Call Volume' via your phone/headset.
- This version contains a workaround for a bug in Android 2.2 which causes a system crash under certain circumstances. If you are on 2.2, do NOT disable Bluetooth while the stream is running or your phone WILL reboot (sorry - tell your phone manufacturer to move to 2.2.1+).

To-do:
- Auto turn on BT when widget is activated.
- Volume sliders for audio streams other than 'Media'
- Possible - map headset button to user-definable action.
- Other features?

Recent changes:
v1.3.1
- Minor Update - add link to device bluetooth settings under menu options.
v1.3
- Support for receipt of On and Off Intents from other apps (IE Tasker). See Menu-->Help for more details.
- Fix bug on Honeycomb when opening preferences menu.

Works on my Zenfone 6. But restart does not work. I tried all apps on my phone but only BTMono worked. I use Plantronics Discovery 925. Widget is a good idea and works well. Sound quality is good loud and clear, important for GPS directions. Sometimes after a phone call you need to tap the widget once or twice. Not perfect but does the job. Paid version does not make any difference but I am pleased to pay for this great work.

Works great I use this with an old Jawbone Prime to hear navigation and alerts on my motorcycle. It saved me from buying a new BT earpiece.

Solved my headache I tried several apps to reroute audio to bluetooth and this is The only one working. Tasker intent integration makes it perfect

Love it still! After multiple different phones & multiple bluetooth earpieces, this is still an awesome app that always performs for me. Best $$ I ever spent for an app! :)

Auto restart after phone call DOES not work. I was really pleased with the free version, so I figured I would buy the premium for this feature as I use my phone to listen to podcasts while driving. Would come in handy when receiving a call for it to kick back to what I was listening to. The podcast resumes but I have to manually restart BTmono. Thought maybe this would get fixed but been a LONG time and nothing. Just stick with the free version as the main reason to get the paid version is for a feature that does not work.
