Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
You are on a train with your iPad in a bag. Like a complete idiot you leave the bag on the train. Or worse still someone steals it.
Wouldn't it be great to have your iPad on an invisible tether so that you are alerted when someone is pilfering your possessions? Now you can!
Bluetooth Tether creates a bluetooth connection between your iPhone and your iPad, then when the iPad is out of range (you have left it somewhere) the connection is broken and an alarm sounds on the iPad (scaring the thief) AND on your iPhone (which is still in your pocket).
Download this app on to your iPad AND iPhone.
Start both Applications.
On the iPhone click the iPad button then select your device.
Thats it. The devices are now locked.
How does it work?
This app is exactly what I was looking for, but I couldn't get my iPhone to recognize my iPad. Both are running 4.2.1. Both had Bluetooth enabled. Is there anything else you have to do? I checked at the support site, but there's no forum for this product yet. I'm also wondering if this app is designed to run in the background. There's no mention of that in the description, and it's impractical to think that I'd have to have these apps running front and center every time I want this feature enabled. Finally, I'd love to see a feature that demonstrates the alarm, so you know what to listen for when the devices are separated.
And John H., thanks for your....clarification. :)
Exciting concept but unfortunately I don't the app is ready for prime time. Not sure if I'm supposed to stay on the screen with the lock or not and the website was useless. Seems the two devices are able to connect. My iPhone vibrated as soon as I clicked off the tether lock screen on my iPad and I couldn't figure out why as both devices were next to each other. I click off the app lock screen on my iPhone and the connection seems to break....or does it? Who knows. Also I have not noticed any type of alarm vibrate or tone that actually goes off on the iPad. At this point it's a waste of money. Hopefully they continue to develop it as I really do believe there is a need for this type of app.
I really need this capability, always leaving my iPad behind. I jumped at this without reading the reviews. Beware! Only works if both devices are running the app in the foreground. In other words, it doesn't work.
