    Hi, I am tired of having to got to mainscreen->settings->wireless and networks->bluetooth settings to se a list of paired devices and the name of the one that is connected. So I figured I'd wade through the morass of bluetooth widgets on the market and find one that not only turns on/off bluetooth, but also shows list of paired devices and their connect status.

    Lo-and-behold I couldn't find a one!

    Anybody out there know of a widget that does this (or even close)?

    thanks,

    I couldn't find one widget to do both. But I did find a way to do this with 2 apps.

    I use QuickTooth to get to the BT settings in one click. Then I use the BT widget from the One Click Widgets set to toggle BT on/off quickly.

    The widget doesn't show what BT is connected to, tho, only that it is active.

    Update: Now that I've tried it, it does both tasks fine. starting it brings up a screen that lets you start/stop bluetooth as well as list devices and connect the one you want. So it's exactly what I was looking for!

    I misunderstood. I thought you wanted the widget to list the connected devices too as well as to act as quick toggle.

    Glad that QuickTooth solved your prob!

    I would like to see a widget that toggles a bluetooth device of my choice on/off. This would be very handy for pairing devices that do not have pairing memory.

    Search for "Smart Bluetooth Widget Pro" in the market, that's what exactly your are looking for.
