Android Device Compatibility: SimpleEye Bluetooth Temperature has been tested and verified with Android 2.0 (Motorola® Droid on Verizon®), 2.1 (LG® Ally on Verizon® and T-Mobile® myTouch 3G Slide running HTC® SenseUI) and 2.2 (Google® Nexus One on T-Mobile®). Some minor issues that should not prevent measurements from being taken have been observed with Android 2.1 devices running the HTC® Sense UI: the Bluetooth implementations on these devices have unresolved errors.
If this is the first time the application is started, the help screen will show as in Figure 2 below.
Tap thebutton to close the help screen: you can tap the button at any time to access this screen.
The application will then check to see if Bluetooth is enabled. If not, it will request that Bluetooth be turned on, as shown in Figure 3 below. Bluetooth must be activated to use the Bluetooth features of the software.

Once the thermometer is ready, tap the Select button as shown in Figure 5 above, then tap the item as shown in Figure 6 below.
The Android Bluetooth settings screen will open up and a scan will be performed: the phone should now find the thermometer as shown in Figure 7 below. The caption on the item will show Pair with this device to indicate that the thermometer is not paired.
Tap the thermometer item to start the pairing process: a pairing key dialog will be shown as in Figure 8 below. Enter the proper pairing code (for the supported FORA IR20b thermometer that code is 111111).
Tap: the pairing process will complete and the thermometer item will change its caption to “Paired but not connected” to indicate that the pairing process is complete: this is shown in Figure 9 below.
You’re now ready to go!
If this is not the first thermometer you have connected to you will be prompted to set this thermometer as your default thermometer as shown in Figure 11 below. Tapto do so.
The thermometer will now be selected and the Connect button will now be enabled as shown in Figure 12 below. You will also be asked if you wish to connect to the thermometer right now.

Once connected, the select button will be disabled and the Connect button will switch to Disconnect. To disconnect from the thermometer you can tap the button.
As soon as a measurement is available, the thermometer will transmit it and the temperature value will be shown as seen in Figure 14 below.
If voice reports are enabled (they are enabled by default) the application will read out the most recent measurement values at this time.
Note: the IR20b thermometers can save multiple measurements even when no Bluetooth connection is present: when a connection is then established using SimpleEye Bluetooth Temperature all the measurements will be automatically transmitted to the Android device and saved (see Application settings and preferences for more options) for future review. Only the latest measurement will be displayed on this screen: to see older measurements tap History.
Tap the button to disconnect from the thermometer when the measurements have been captured. The connection will be automatically closed when the thermometer turns off.
As before, you will be prompted to choose whether or not this will be your default entry method. Once this is done the spinner will reflect your choice and the button will change as shown in Figure 16 below. Any visible values will be cleared.
Tap Record to open up the manual entry screen as shown in Figure 17 below.
Enter the temperature measurement details into the form: the temperature is required and must be a number. You can set the date of the measurement and also enter a short note with the measurement: example values are shown in Figure 18 below.
Tap Save to save the measurement. The measurement will be saved and the application will return to the measurement capture screen as shown in Figure 19 below.
The chart can scroll to show previous measurements as shown in Figure 21 below.
Tap on any point in the chart to see the measurement detail and the associated date as shown in Figure 22 below.
A long-press on the chart will open the chart options menu as shown in Figure 23 below: this allows the number of displayed measurements to be changed.
Figure 24 below shows the chart but with 1 week of measurements at a time.
When the orientation is changed to landscape the chart will enlarge to fill as much space as is available, as shown in Figure 25 below.
Tapto see a listing of all measurements as shown in Figure 26 below. The measurements are ordered with the most recent measurement at the top.
Tap on any entry in the listing to view the details of the measurement, including the note attached to the measurement (if any), the time it was saved and last modified and any other additional measurement details taken: you may need to scroll to see those details.
