    The option to connect to a device with B4A-Bridge via Bluetooth has disappeared, at least on my machine.
    Is this permanent, or do I need to do something to enable a Bluetooth connection?

    Until when we can expect a B4A-Bridge over Bluetooth solution? I am working a lot with the Bluetooth option in B4A-Bridge.

    Thanks a lot!

    There is no release date. I'm not sure that this feature will be implemented at all. There were many problems with this feature.

    There are two better alternatives: B4A-Bridge in wireless mode or USB debug mode (which most phones support).

    Just for the record, I find it useful. On occasions, I can't use USB (running portable) and don't have wifi, so BlueTooth is the only remaining option.

    Thanks Erel for clarifying the things. I can live with the problems having with bluetooth. IMO there will be no need to improve the bluetooth connection, but having one would be a great feature. Like Troberg, I am a part of my developing time not in the office and I don't have wifi. I will give the USB option a try...

    Thanks again for your great work!
