Bluetooth Proximity Tasker
By Chris Vallis
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Run any AppleScript when a paired bluetooth device goes in and out of range. Adjust the range using signal strength.
What's New in Version 1.0.2
Doesn't work at all. Don't waste your money.
First of all there's NO documentation at all. I've tried to get this thing to fire AppleScripts and just won't work. I had to refer to reviews of this app for tip s on making it work! There's a typo in "Bluetooth" on the button that says "Bluetooh Device". Really? ONE button on your app and you have a typo?? And what the heck is the point of the slider labeled "Select"? This is the worst $2 I've ever spent. I really WANT to like this app. Please fix it and I'll revise my review.
Do yourself a favor and download the freely available open source program called Proximity, that blows this one away.
Does exactly what is says. I use it to enable my iPhone to be my key to access the computer. No more passwords. See the link below for a guide. I would have given 5 stars but it seems to be limited to 1 bluetooth device and 1 action set. Would be nice to have multiple devices so multiple people can share the same computer.
Garbage, don’t buy
How can you use this when there’s a known issue of connectivity between Macbook and Iphone via bluetooth? You can’t even successfully pair the two since forever. Apple refuses to acknowledge much less address this glaring and embarassing fly in its ointment.
