GetBlue enhances your Android handset or tablet with automated data acquisition and manual device communication for Bluetooth® SPP devices, TCP/IP, HTTP and camera barcode-scanners. The collected data is displayed, logged, stored, forwarded, or injected as virtual user input into other apps (data acquisition via keyboard wedge).
GetBlue is a versatile Android application for bi-directional data acquisition.
GetBlue collects data from Bluetooth SPP, TCP/IP, HTTP and camera scanners automatically in the background. The captured data is forwarded to adjustable target devices, files, online spreadsheets or even injected into 3rd party applications. Bi-directional device communication is supported, manual communication functions for reading and writing data are available as well.
The data acquisition app GetBlue can be operated like a cross-switch: it captures data from an adjustable data source and forwards it to any supported target. The following devices and protocols are currently available:
Captured data can be forwarded via Bluetooth, TCP/IP and HTTP to any target device. In addition the collected data can be
GetBlue can also be operated as so-called keyboard wedge. Data captured with the internal camera or with an arbitrary external device (e.g. a Bluetooth SPP barcode scanner or an RFID controller with TCP/IP interface) is injected via the GetBlue soft-keyboard into arbitrary apps. Costly, specialized hardware (e.g. new barcode scanners) is not required!
In order to operate GetBlue as software wedge you need to activate the GetBlue Keyboard in Android Settings. After changing the input method of your Android to this keyboard, collected data is automatically simulated as user-input. Some of the advantages are:
GetBlue offers various possibilities for automated data acquisition.
Data captured from Bluetooth, HTTP, camera scanners or TCP devices is automatically saved or uploaded to an arbitrary Google Spreadsheet. Besides this, device data can be forwarded via Bluetooth SPP, HTTP GET/POST or TCP/IP sockets to adjustable targets. GetBlue is also able to work as transparent proxy between different devices and/or protocols.
GetBlue works as background service. If adjusted, responses from the target application are sent back to device (bi-directional mode).
It's the perfect tool for:
GetBlue is available in Google Play as free demo or as paid full version (as an alternative you may scan the barcode to the right with your handset). The free demo version of GetBlue 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 GetBlue version for download on this web-site. This special version requires slightly more application permissions but can be activated with activation keys provided by TEC-IT (internet access is required for activation).
