Bluetooth Logging program

Recommended Posts

Just found here:-

http://www.gatefold.co.uk/smurf/

a new development project of Bluetooth logging that somone is working on...

screenshot.gif

Smurf is a Bluetooth Logging program for MS Smartphone, it scans at a set interval and retrieves a list of all the bluetooth devices your device can see. It has been created because I wanted to see how many bluetooth devices there are out there and if any of them had interesting names, with the intention of sending a message to those with interesting names. Great for pubs, trains and other enclosed spaces. Why smurf? well, they are blue...

Current features (on the download below) 

Automatically detecting Bluetooth users in your vicinity

Logging who it has seen

Future enhancements 

alerting to found devices by sound and vibrate - Working 20/01/05 

Identify the manufacturer that owns the Bluetooth MAC (from list of 10,000!) - Working 15/02/05 

BlueJack devices with specific words in their device name - almost working 15/02/05 

Add cell-id location to log 

Upload logs to website

Consolidation of logs from multiple users

Chart of popular names/phones users have found 

Add people profiles to bluetooth MAC addresses

Search of consolidated logs online

Hi All!

I've just uploaded the latest version of my Smurf Bluetooth Logger:

Smurf is a Bluetooth Logging program for MS Smartphone, it scans at a set interval and retrieves a list of all the bluetooth devices your device can see. It can also automatically BlueJack devices based on simple rules. It has been created because I wanted to see how many bluetooth devices there are out there and if any of them had interesting names, with the intention of sending a message to those with interesting names. Great for pubs, trains and other enclosed spaces. Why smurf? well, they are blue...

Current features

  • Automatically detecting Bluetooth devices in your vicinity
    Logging who it has seen
    alerting to devices found by sound and/or vibrate
    Identify the manufacturer that owns the Bluetooth MAC (from list of 10,000!)
    BlueJack devices automatically

Great program.

A bit like an early/stripped down version of Mobiluck. BlueJacking, plain and simple :)/

If its ok to ask, will this program expire at a set date, and are you a programmer after the $s or just for fun and general enlightenment?

Obviously not anyones role to judge your motives, just wanted to know if this free app would ever disable itself on me :>

btw, your site mentions that non msoft bluetooth stack isn't supported. Is the coding required a possibility, to enable widcomm use, or not supported by .net? [edit] Meant to say, to clarify for others, I'm referring to using this app on a PC. C500 works wells obviously, will try on an iPaq 2210 over weekend...

Thanks again for your efforts...

Hi,

Yes this app is free without timeouts, it's the project I'm using to get me into c#, all I ask at the moment is for feedback and bug reports!

I may charge for a future version that allows more web based features since there will be overheads in running the site, but that is a way off yet, need to learn asp.net first...

The widdcomm thing is annoying, but probably possible if somebody wrote a managed wrapper round the stack and there was an easy way to detect which you were using. Certainly something I don't want to attempt to do myself just yet!

It will just work on a PC with XPSP2 and the MS BT stack.

Thanks for your interest!

Is it possible to send any messages/pics with this other than "you've been smurfed"?

I can't find any options to do this.

Which part of the process are you having problems with?

Once you have downloaded the CAB, are you able to copy it to your phone?

When you run it, does it not install?

Any error messages?

Quite a funky little app, nice one.

Only problem I spotted is the up key moves the cursor down within options, and the down key moves the cursor up!

lol, yes working on that one - in the .NET CF the controls are placed on the page in the order they were created and you don't have the Tab Order property on them, which means I have to re-do the whole form to just change the tab order! arhhh!

You don't have to redo the form.

Just go into the web designer code where the controls are added to the form and alter the order they are added. The code is automatically generated when you drag stuff onto the form, but that doesn't mean you can't alter it.
