The word Bluetooth is originally coming from Scandinavian, the epithet of the tenth-century king Harald Bluetooth who united dissonant Danish tribes into a single kingdom. Nowadays, electronic devices like smartphones, laptops, MP3 players, PDA’s, video games players and tablets are everywhere around us. And the Bluetooth is a dispensable technique in most of the devices.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from fix or mobile devices. The technique allows us to send and get data safely and fast. Compared to other wireless communication techniques, the Bluetooth is only available within a short distance, normally top to ten meters or 30 feet. But the advantage is quite obvious on the other hand. You are able to get rid of annoying guided media like cables, cords, adapters. Therefore, the communication among the devices is wireless and convenient.

There are not enough Android Bluetooth managers in the market. However, Bluetooth Auto Connect is one of the few managers that work functionally. When the Bluetooth switch is turned on, or the screen of your Android device goes on, the app will connect to your device immediately. But you have to make the connection on your own for the first time, and the app will remember your device automatically later on. You are able to connect many Bluetooth devices for one time by prioritizing them. There are some unseen situations coming sometimes. The app may fail to recognize your Android device, or the Bluetooth doesn’t work well on certain devices.
This app can detect your Android device automatically and relate one Android device with one contacts so that you can have easy access to them.
You are able to categorize the device list and share the photos and music you like with your contacts. But when your Android device runs on version4.1+, you may have some trouble paring with PIN-less devices.
When you are making a call, this Bluetooth manager will connect to your device automatically. Once the call is over, the Bluetooth will be disconnected to save more power. The app is extremely useful when you are driving because you don’t have to stop the car to get the calls. It can also lengthen the time of the battery.
If you are a big fan of music, this app is a perfect choice for you. It is a handy app that enables you to control your Android device remotely and play music over your wireless headset and speakers. All you have to do is to connect the device through Bluetooth Manager ICS and make the audio checkbox work. Despite the strong points, the app still has some shortcomings. The app can’t stream fluently, and there may be a delay sometimes. And the app is not free to use.
This app will turn Bluetooth on when you are making phone calls and change into power save mode when you hand off the call. But the Bluetooth won’t be opened when you are using the voice dialed calls. Besides, the Bluetooth won’t be switched off after your device is fully charged.
