BluePiano represents a smart keyboard-wedge software for Android phones or tablets. It supports devices like external Bluetooth barcode scanners, RFID readers or GPS devices supporting the Bluetooth serial port profile (RFCOMM). BluePiano collects and injects device data into Android Apps, modifications of the target apps are not required.

Data Collection with each App
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 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 connections is possible with a single tap (e.g. Bluetooth scanner out of range). The integrated camera scanner is useful for backup purposes.

Automated Data Collection
For all Apps
On some earlier Android smart phone models it is not possible to reliably connect to a Bluetooth SPP device: Due to buggy Bluetooth firmware BluePiano may complain about so-called SPP errors (see BluePiano device manager - long tap on the "?123" key of the BluePiano keyboard). These steps may solve the problem:

BluePiano is available in Google Play as free demo or as paid full version (just search for the term BluePiano or scan the barcode on the right with your handset). The free demo version of BluePiano replaces captured device data in irregular intervals with a demo-text.
For users with bulk-license requirements or without access to Google Play, TEC-IT offers a special BluePiano version for download on this web-site. This version can be activated with activation keys provided by TEC-IT (internet access is required once for activation). Just contact us for more information.
THANK YOU! For creating your barcode keyboard for Android. It is EXACTLY what my clients need to use my web-based software.
