I'm guessing this is some sort of Bluetooth keyboard recognition and/or selection/activation issue in Android that I can't seem to figure out.
The iCade Arcade Bluetooth device is in essence a keyboard device. I can pair it with a Nexus 10 tablet, and after I do, I can see various characters appear in a text app when I move the joystick around and press the buttons.
But my Android phone is being stubborn. It pairs ok, but the input refuses to get fed to the apps. I also have an actual Bluetooth keyboard, and it works ok with that phone.
I've tried various Bluetooth connect apps, and there I can see a list of paired devices and the option to "connect" to a device. It refuses to work.
What am I missing here?
Does anyone know of a Bluetooth helper app of sorts that also gives immediate feedback on what it is picking up from the selected Bluetooth device? Is there anything specific I could look for in logcat?
The phone is Android 4.4 and I can't upgrade it (Chinese phone with no firmware support). It's an ECOO S04 Aurora Plus 3GB. The Nexus 10 I think runs on Android Lollipop.
