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
Didn't work for me either
As previously stated, Applescripts aren't launching when proximity changes - not even the defaul beep. :/
Works, but needs some serious polish...
There are, of course, free alternatives to this app out there, but this one seems to be a lot more simplified for those of us not wanting to mess around with a whole lot of various customization options. The interface is very spartan; there's nothing more than the ability for you to select the device to use (which as another reviewer pointed out, the text on the button is misspelled, which is a shame), the ability to select the signal strength required to classify the device as in or out of range, and the delay (though whether this is the delay between when the strength hits the threshold specified or how often it polls for the device, it's unclear).
I was able to get this working with my 4S without too much hassle (the 4S said that the device I was trying to connect to, my iMac, was an incompatible device, but it still works), and the default Beeps seem to work just fine. Haven't yet experimented with any AppleScripting, so I'll update this review when I have.
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.
