Halle, thanks for those pointers. I’ve now got bluetooth working (in the sample app) on all three devices that I own: Jabra Classic, PowerBeats and Beats Solo. All that was needed was to disable preferred buffer size. (I haven’t done this in my own app, because I’m not yet on 2.5.)
This leads to various thoughts about how best to adapt to bluetooth when it is present. In order to do that, it would be great if you could share your experience. Which headsets have you tested and what were the results? From reading the FAQ, it sounds like it is not always preferred buffer size that does the trick?
I’d also be very interested to know just how much impact disabling these settings has on OE performance?
Does PolitePix have any way to host a wiki where the community could share device tests? Perhaps collectively we could do what is not reasonable for you to do alone?
I totally understand the impossibility of offering full bluetooth support, given the diversity of devices out in the wild. But, at the same time, from my users’ point of view, when the app fails to work with their headset, it’s the app’s fault. They say, “My headset works with everything else–this app is just too buggy–Delete.” That’s why I believe we have to make a best effort to support bluetooth, even if it will never be 100% and even if you–quite understandably–can’t devote much time to it.
