Similar to BT for Car (Only ON), but it created as patch and have setting under Bluetooth setting.

USAGE:
* Apply patch
* Go to Bluetooth setting -> switch BT on - > Pull down menu BT timer

Here you will find sleeping timer (when BT is not connected to any device) and switchers for notification.

To start using this, just press on the icon on desktop or add it to lockscreen pull down menu or add this app to Situations app for automation. If your phone is not connected over the sleeping timer, it will switch BT off automatically.

Hi,
thanks for this cool Patch. Two minor observations, I made when using it:
- A little bug: Settings page does not scroll in landscape orientation, even though the page is too long to fit on the screen of a Jolla 1 in landscape.
- IMHO, "Temporary Bluetooth connection" or "Bluetooth timeout, when unconnected" would be a better name, as "BT for car 2" is useful for any device type, not just cars. Or do I misunderstand something?
Cheers!

Thank you, the new name is fine and the settings page works nicely in landscape orientation now. :)

1. It's not a bug, because by default Settings app in Portrait mode and I don't have patch that rotate it. Probably I can add SilicaFlicable to get scrollable option in landscape mode.

2. When I created it for my needs, it was for car connection, this is a reason for name. I can rename it, but it should be with short name, because the same name used for .desktop file. And yes, you can use it for any type of devices...
