Bluecommand 1.1 reviewDownload
Bluecommand allows you to remote control a Mac from Bluetooth devices.
Bluecommand allows you to remote control a Mac from Bluetooth devices. Executes shell scripts and AppleScripts sent to a Mac from Bluetooth-enabled mobiles or handhelds.
How do I setup my system?
Open System Preferences > Bluetooth. Be sure Bluetooth is turned on.
If the options "Discoverable" and "Accept files without warning" are both turned on, then you are ready to go.
If you prefer to keep the "Discoverable" feature off, you have to pair your device with your Mac. Select "Devices" and follow the instructions to set up a new device.
In any case, to use Bluecommand you need to be able to send files from your Bluetooth device to the Mac.
I suggest to select "Accept files without warning", to take the full advantage of Bluecommand.
How does it work?
Bluecommand will watch the folder where accepted files are saved, looking for any incoming text file or vNote. If the file's content begins with the string 'cmd=', it will be executed as a shell command. If the header is 'app=', it will be processed as AppleScript. In both cases, the file will then be deleted.
Any device able to send files via Bluetooth is just ok.
Obviously, you also need a Mac with built-in Bluetooth feature, or a Bluetooth USB adapter.
