BluePiano - BluePiano extends arbitrary Android apps with automated and universal data collection capabilities.
BluePiano works as a so-called keyboard wedge: such a keyboard wedge captures device data and forwards this data by simulating user-input to target apps. Captured device data appears as entered by the user in the input field of the target application - without manual typing.
BluePiano is easy to install and very user-friendly: After downloading and installing BluePiano a setup assistant supports the configuration of the keyboard wedge. The soft-keyboard notifies users in case of lost Bluetooth connections using the notification bar or via a meaningful symbol on the additional Bluetooth key. Recovering lost connection is possible with a single tap. The integrated camera scanner is useful for backup purposes.
· Accelerated, automated data acquisition (e.g. when scanning bar-codes with an external Bluetooth scanner).
· Compatible with all serial Bluetooth devices (Bluetooth SPP - serial port profile respective RFCOMM).
· Captured data is injected into input-fields of arbitrary target apps.
· Transparent data collection via simulated user-input.

· Additional key on the soft-keyboard for recovering lost Bluetooth connections.
· Policy based, target application dependent cursor control possibilities.
