About this app

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.


New 'Premium' version is now available (just $1) and includes the much requested widget + auto reconnect after phone calls. Free version will continue to get bug fixes, but most new features will be targeted at the Premium version. Thanks for your support!

Simple app to stream audio to your bluetooth mono headset. Please upgrade to Premium if you'd like to support development.

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:
- Widget (premium only)
- Auto restart after phone call (premium only)
- Customize your Android's color (premium only)
- 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+). The bug has been fixed as of Android 2.2.1.

I tried a couple different apps to get my Bluetooth headset to provide audio other than just phone calls. But, no success. I'm using a Samsung S10 with Android 10 and a Motorola H720 headset. When the app was installing, I got a message saying the app was written for an older version of Android and might not work and look for a new version. A new version is not available, but it seems to work just fine with my hardware. The connection is quick and so far very stable and has easy volume control

I use this app mainly to Route The Voice from my Google Map navigation to my Bluetooth earpiece. It works fine for that. However if someone calls me on the telephone it disconnects my Bluetooth speaker. Then I have to turn the app connection back on. I sometimes use it to play music, but the sound is not particularly impressive. However I would not expect it to be so that's NOT a complaint.

So, I got myself a BT headset for Christmas, and found out later that it doesn't have A2DP support. Doing a quick Google search led me to this app, which so far has worked great! Yes, the audio is about FM radio quality, but that's a hell of a lot better than no audio and is in no way the developers' fault. Plus, two songs in and no ads, so it's already 1000% better than those word games out there. Thanks for a great app!
