Just got this app specifically for the Bluetooth locking and, unfortunately, it doesn't work at all... When I check the box to select a Bluetooth device, it keeps scanning and never gives me a list of devices to select from, even though it's displaying the one I want to use as the first item (greyed out and scanning constantly). Since I can never select the device and can't hit OK for the device it *has* found nor cancel scanning for other devices, it's useless. Also, it seems like there *has* to be a delay before it locks of at least 30 seconds. This isn't horrible, but I'd rather have the option to lock immediately upon Bluetooth disconnect. Until I can actually connect, though, I can't check how much that would annoy me.

Seems like a cool app, but it needs quite a bit more polish...

This wasn't my issue with it, though. My issue was that I couldn't even get RedHand to choose my iPhone as the device. The iPhone shows up in the list of devices to choose from but it's greyed out and RedHand shows "searching..." forever. I waited about 20 minutes before I just cancelled it. It should not take 20 minutes to find Bluetooth devices. There should be a "Stop" button or something that shows the currently found devices in the event that the one you want is already shown. Apple does this in their Bluetooth search, why does RedHand do it differently?
