This is basically a kind of tutorial which will be useful if you are learning and implementing bluetooth in your android app. In this tutorial I have shared the code for scanning of the Classic Bluetooth devices in range and fetching the paired devices list, moreover I will find some time to write about the implementation of further aspects of classic bluetooth.
Android offers bluetooth API that lets you share your stuff wireless. As per Bluetooth standards it offers you short range (10 m approx.) device connectivity. This API let application to the Bluetooth devices and enable point to point or multipoint wireless feature. Here we are discussing about the Classic Bluetooth that consumes more battery life.
Bluetooth devices with low power requirement Android 4.3 (API level 18) introduces support for Bluetooth Low Energy, I have talked about it in my last blog. We will get to understand about the API by creating a sample application that lets you share you stuff over bluetooth.
To start with we will first find to check that whether our device support bluetooth or not. For this we need to use Bluetooth Adapter class. Bluetooth Adapter is some sort of entry – point for all bluetooth interaction.
