Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Game ScanmostBluetooth Devices for Android
XDA member Maksl5 came up with an original game for your Android device. ScanMostBluetoothDevices is pretty descriptive and the whole idea of the game is to achieve to find a set number of devices to get into the new level. When app finds a new device, it will be added to the list of found devices and then the data will be uploaded to the central ranking server with a coded a script. Scan the most blue tooth devices that you can and share your results with friends to see who has the highest score. No doubt that this will keep you busy on those dead moments of your day.

[GAME] Scan Most Bluetooth Devices
Today I want to present you my first developed game for Android and I want to say hello to this really nice community.
At first i want to tell you a short story.
One day I sat in a tram in Berlin and it was boring. So I decided to scan Bluetooth devices. I scaned, scaned and scaned. Some names of the devices were so funny, that I searched more and more. Since this day I search every day in tram, subway or bus until one day came the nice idea to make a game from it. Scan as much Bluetooth Devices as you can. My mobile phone is a HTC HD2, but only with Android ! ( Simply the best OS ) I read the Android SDK and all other things to know about how to develop programs for Android. Quickly I realized, that developing for Android is on a Java – Basis. Until now I only had experience with the .NET language for Windows. I developt some little nice programs with it, too. But with Java, that was a really new area until I saw it is a little bit like PHP and PHP is one of the language that I love. So I thought it don’t would be such difficult as it came. I had much problems, but I read and read and so I got it.
That was the short story about the idea of the game.
