I recently bought an Anycom bluetooth dongle; and installed the drivers from their webpage for Vista.

Maybe I'm missing something very obvious here. But I dont have any problem pausing a movies, songs, video in ALL possible software using my bluetooth headphones (works in pretty much any software the plays videos and music... WMP, SageTV, PowerDVD, etc). In fact, I can pause the media I'm playing, and answer a skype phone call. I can control volume, mute, etc. This is all [u]without[/u] installing Salling Clicker.

So what exactly do people need Salling Clicker for? All these fundamental functions are work perfectly in all A2DP compliant apps (which is pretty much all the popular Windows apps).

The only thing that I currently can't do with my existing drivers is the ability to pair up with a bluetooth device via command line. I'm not sure if Salling Clicker can do this either.

Personally I use Clicker as follows:

1. Laptop placed in boot of my car with entire music collection
2. Laptop connected to aux-in connector of car audio system
3. Clicker used to control iTunes on the laptop from my PDA on the dashboard

I can see what track is playing, control playback, select playlists etc. Absolutely ideal for what I want.

There are a multitude of ways I could see Salling Clicker being useful. All depends on what you are looking to achieve I guess.

Can you move the mouse cursor/pointer on the computer screen without Salling Clicker? (Mind you, it would be very disappointing to find out that Salling cannot do at least [i]that[/i]. It would be interesting to also be able to take advantage of one's handset accelerometer, which I am (also) not sure Salling can do.)
