Bluetooth: Android & iPad :-(


Has anyone done this?

They find each other, they smile at each other and give me two windows saying "do you want to?" I reply yes. The Android says "Paired." The iPad raises a middle finger and says "Not connected" and that's it. Latest IOS & Android OS(4.3).

Just to mention how far this got.

It's the iPad Air. I can associate the phone with a dodgy linux box down there no problem. Probably some security thing.

I know that with iPod Touch iOS pairing is for audio profiles, may be the same with the iPad mini.

Thanks for the reply.

I have put it aside for the moment. Bluetooth is usually file transfer, but I have a son in software(he's good at it) and he spent a week recompiling and library matching trying to get some version of a bluetooth dongle working for a project. He failed, after not inconsiderable effort. I decided thenceforth to apply the old research joke to bluetooth:

"If at first you don't succeed - Give up!":-).

@baaltom: Start a new thread if you can't find any. This thread was about comms.

I got to the bottom of my bluetooth issue with Android & Ipad Air, by reading up on the docs on libmobiledevice.
http://www.libmobiledevice.org

It turns out to be a WIP as Apple willfully obfuscate and make things difficult for other systems; and of course, as soon as the software is sorted, Apple update and change it again :-/. So they don't communicate because my Android is not an Apple device, and Apple want to keep their users locked up.
