    Default One-Tap Connect to a paired device?

    I am looking for an app/widget to add a tiny bit of convenience to my life. I want the ability to tap on an icon on my homescreen that will trigger a (Bluetooth) connect to a device that I have paired with in the past. A one-tap-and-you're-done widget would be perfect. I have a Bluetooth dongle in my car that I connect to quite often that plays music over a stereo system (HTC Stereoclip A100). The device is paired with my phone, but I must go to Bluetooth Settings and click on the device to connect every time I get into my car.

    I have tried a few apps in the Marketplace with no luck. I am using ICS (HTC EVO 4G LTE). One specific app that worked, but no longer works in ICS:
    Bluetooth Profile Widget

    If there is a thread that already answers this question, please point me to it. I was unable to find one that addressed this question.

    Have you tried not turning the device on until you have Bluetooth enabled in the phone? Most devices will connect when you turn them on, if a devide they're paired to is within range.

    You know Rukbat, I'm not sure why I didn't try that. Worked just fine! I'll use my Bluetooth Radio On/Off widget now.
