Ipad Bluetooth File Sharing
Who can resist the iPad? Its large and beautiful touchscreen paired with many interesting capabilities and features make it suitable for a wide range of activities. Among those features is included Bluetooth support. In the mind of any end users that feature is associated with the idea of being able to add all kind of useful and interesting accessories. The list includes stereo headphones and Bluetooth keyboards that can help you increase your device’s level of performance.
What less consumers are aware of is that the iPad’s Bluetooth can also be used for file sharing. This facility can be used with the help of apps made available on the market. A first example is Bluetooth Share HD, an app developed by LY MobileSoft. This app uses the iPad’s Bluetooth capabilities to connect it to any other iDevice. After the connection is established you will be able to send files, photos and other data between the two iDevices. The app’s interface includes a file button that displays a list of files saved on your iPad, a preview pane where you can get an idea of what each document includes and an area dedicated to file details like size and creation date, located somewhere in the top right corner. You will also be able to find out how much free space you have available due to the pie chart integrated in the app’s interface. The large buttons and the friendly layout qualify it as an easy-to-use iPad app. It’s a great alternative when no Wi-Fi or 3G connection is available.
Another app compatible with iOS 4.3 and able to support iPad Bluetooth file sharing is Celeste. With its help you will be able to send to your iPad all sorts of files: from the usual documents to photos and videos. The source of the files can be another smartphone (an Android device, a BlackBerry, a Nokia) or even a computer as long as it supports OBEX Bluetooth file transfer.
The only problem is that in order to use this app you need to jailbreak your iPad. The plus side is that you will be able to transfer to your iPad files of any format and from any compatible source. This app can be easily located in the Cydia store and is available for $9.99. The steps which allow you to use it for Bluetooth file transfers involve making sure that Bluetooth is turned on, the source of the file transfer is discoverable and Bluetooth receive/sharing is active. After the pairing process is completed (that may take a few seconds) you will be able to share files via Bluetooth.
