Excellent! Takes my bluetooth game to a whole 'notha level!

Seriously, this app is excellent to the point that I was absolutely shocked it's free. Very well designed and thought-out. Very feature-rich without being difficult to use or taking any "figuring out". This will improve the experience of anyone who uses bluetooth devices on a Mac.

The only functionality I was able to think of that could be added to improve Toothpicks is the ability to receive a notification if a given device's battery goes below a pre-defined level.

All things considered, this is an excellent app, definitely worthy of a five-star rating.

Focused and easy to use

I just started using this app as a replacement for using the system Bluetooth menu item. I appreciate that it's focused, but still flexible, and it's very quick! Highly recommended if you're looking for a good way to manage your BT devices (especially headphones).

Excellent...and I have a feature request

I have a pair of Bose On-Ear Wireless Headphones that automatically connect to my Mac whether I want them to or not.

I originally got this app hoping there was an option to prevent the headphones from automatically connecting without me clicking a button or hotkey.

Unfortunately, that's not the case. I switch on the headphones and the icon turns from gray to black and the headphones are now connected to my Mac. Ugh.

If you can add this feature (to prevent a device autoconnecting) to an update, I will love you forever!

Thanks for considering this!
