Power Down from Smartphone App
« on: March 27, 2017, 08:48:13 pm »
Would be nice to be able to send a command from the smartphone app to power off the Pockethernet.

hm, i wonder if apple would allow the dev to control bt on/off, but i agree it would be nice if the app would switch that itself as needed (if not on before)

Closing the app is a good option. Closing BT not. I need the BT connexion with my smartwatch. So when i close the PE app  i have to restart BT to connect it again with my watch.

as i mentioned, pockethernet should only automatically turn off bt if it had to turn it on in the first place. if it's been on already it could leave it untouched (i know similar function from some wifi analyzer apps for example...)
