Description

Connect AirPods (or other Bluetooth headphones) to your Mac with a single click or keypress.

AirPods are great, but they don’t work quite as smoothly with Macs as they do iPhones. You can’t tell at a glance whether audio will play from the AirPods or your Mac’s built-in speaker, you have to dig into a Bluetooth submenu to connect, and then you have to go back to the menu to see when the AirPods are ready for use. ToothFairy streamlines this: just click an icon in the menu bar (or press a hotkey) to switch to the AirPods, and the icon always shows whether they’re connected.

- Works with AirPods, as well as any Bluetooth device that you can connect to your Mac: headphones, speakers, headsets, game pad controllers, keyboards, mice, etc. (HomePod is not supported, as it is not a Bluetooth audio device.)

- Click the hollow AirPods icon in the menu bar to switch to AirPods. It fills in to show they are connected and can also display a battery indicator. Now you know that it’s safe to start playing music; it won’t blast from your Mac’s internal speaker.

- Supports multiple Bluetooth audio devices; you can choose a different icon and hotkey for each.

- Get the best audio quality. macOS will normally use the SCO codec if it thinks you’re going to use the microphone. ToothFairy can ensure that it uses the higher quality AAC codec when you only care about audio output: listening to music or video or playing a game.

- Disconnect a Bluetooth device by clicking the icon (or pressing the hotkey) again, so that you can switch back to your phone. AirPods and Beats devices with an Apple W1 chip do not need to be manually disconnected, and you can set them to avoid accidental disconnections when pressing the hotkey multiple times.

- ToothFairy automatically launches at login, so it’s always there when you need it.

- Optionally hide the Dock icon so it only appears in the menu bar. With the Dock icon hidden, you can right-click (or Control-click) the menu bar icon to access the settings.

- Run a shell script when the AirPods are connected or disconnected, for example to notify you or to launch or quit another app. ToothFairy itself is also AppleScriptable, so you can control your devices from other apps (like Lacona) and automations.

- Use with your Magic Mouse or Magic Keyboard to make sure the battery level doesn’t get too low, or to quickly reconnect them after charging or if they get disconnected.

Note: ToothFairy works with devices that can be connected via the macOS Bluetooth menu. Please make sure the devices you want to connect have been paired to your Mac before using them with ToothFairy. Switching Bluetooth devices between multiple Macs requires that the Bluetooth device can be paired with more than one computer/phone at a time; this is not supported by the current-generation Apple Magic Keyboard/Mouse/Trackpad. The battery indicator works with devices that can show their battery level in the Bluetooth pane of System Preferences.

What's New

- The battery info updates more quickly after connecting a device.

- The “Run shell script after connecting/disconnecting” help page now explains how to trigger a shortcut.

- ToothFairy is better at remembering the current sound input device so that the “Improve sound quality by disabling audio input from device” feature will restore the proper one after connecting a new device.

- You can now pull down a device’s menu while the connection progress indicator is spinning.

- ToothFairy no longer shows arrow icons while it’s in the process of fixing the sound output, as this was confusing. Instead, it will continue showing the device as half-connected until it’s done. You can still see what’s happening with the fixing via the tooltip and the menu item text.

- If the feature to fix the sound output is disabled, clicking the half-connected device icon now disconnects the device instead of doing nothing.

- Each help page now has a link to a Google translation so you can view it in a different language.

- Updated the French localization.

- Fixed a bug where the progress indicator wouldn’t stop if you clicked the menu bar icon when using the “Don’t disconnect when clicking icon or pressing hotkey” option.

- Made various fixes and updates to prevent Cocoa from logging warnings.

- Made various threading improvements.

- The build number is now displayed in a tooltip in the About tab.

- Mac App Store receipt validation works better on Macs with damaged Ethernet ports.
