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).

Useful Easy and Handy

This app does what it says and provides a useful bloototh alternative that does not require you to drill through the sub menus to access your devices. It acts as a set it and forget it-or monitor it from the menu bar. Makes connectng to bluetooth devices simple, easy and flawless!

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!
