We improved the Bluetooth integration with Android OS when first paring the PixieEngine Bluetooth device. This process is only done once when pairing the Bluetooth device to the phone. It is simple enough if you go through the Android settings menu subsystem and this is how most people paired the two. However if you did not go through the Android setting menu, you could still pair the device through the mobile application but that tended to be a bit problematic. Now both ways work well.
We also added a beep sound if you lose the Bluetooth connection to the PixieEngine device. In addition, you now have a dialog box indicating that Bluetooth connectivity has been lost. Previous version just showed an error in the alert section of the screen. This fix prevents the user from not realizing that the PixieEngine is disconnected from the mobile phone - especially important when searching for a Tag.
We also added a beep whenever a new Tag is found nearby. While this is a small fix, it makes a big difference for the end user. Now when searching for a missing Tag you don’t have to be constantly looking at the screen to see if one was found.
