Bluetooth Pair is a home screen widget that enables or disables Bluetooth profiles on your Android device. Bluetooth Pair works with two profiles found on most Android devices, the A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and the HSHFP (Headset/Hands-free Profile).

How to use Bluetooth Pair? Simple, make sure your Android device can handle at least one of those mentioned Bluetooth profiles (A2DP or/and HSHFP), go to "Bluetooth Settings" ("Settings" -> "Wireless & networks" -> "Bluetooth Setting" or "Settings" -> "Bluetooth"). Pair with the desired device (a car audio system for example) and make sure you can enable or disable the Bluetooth profiles. The way this is done varies from device to device, see your owners manual.

Ok, so you can handle at least one Bluetooth profile and your Android device is configured and working to pair with your desired Bluetooth device. Now do a long touch on your home screen to choose the widget and then select Bluetooth Pair, select a Bluetooth Profile, select a paired Bluetooth device and that's it. An icon with the name of your device will appear on the home screen. When the profile is turned on the icon will be colorful otherwise black & white. Toggle on/off the Bluetooth profile by touching on the widget. You can have many Bluetooth Pair widgets on your home screen.

NOTES:
- Make sure your device can handle at least one of those mentioned Bluetooth profiles.
- Some devices may require at least once a PIN number to get paired, when that happens an input PIN screen will appear.
- The widget has been tested on Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich using phones from Samsung, Sony and Motorola.

    Worked great, now just shows connection status but no control to connect or disconnect. Back to square one

    I use it to reconnect to my headset when it doesn't like to automatically. Works great. Also, great to be able to switch the a2dp profile to my PC and listen to the music through my PC's connected sound system. Great!

    Worked perfectly on my S2 but after getting an S4 I've found that it fails every time try to connect.

    Works pretty well for me. Like others I use it to switch off A2DP so that I can listen to my car radio and still get my phone calls via the hands free on the head unit.
