Poll

OBsIV, please add Bluetooth Classic support to Apex so that we can use Manager wirelessly on PC again.

Yes. Removing it was a step backward.
Yes. It would be nice but not particularly important.
If you want. It doesn't bother me.
No. It would take OBsIV away from doing actual important stuff.
No. I wouldn't use it.
This is a worthless poll.

XIM Apex Manager on PC
« on: 03:26 AM - 04/12/18 »
XIM4 supports bluetooth classic and LE, APEX supports bluetooth LE only. Windows has unreliable bluetooth LE support so wireless config on PC is not supported by APEX.

I really miss using Manager on my tablet whilst gaming. My phone's screen is a bit too small to see button binds, and too fiddly, to change settings on the fly.
Whilst XIM Manager runs fine on a smartphone, in practice, I prefer to use it on PC.

I'm with you guys, for the majority of the time I used XIM4 Manager on PC over other platforms. It would be nice to have that back but from what Obsiv has shared there is currently no way to provide a reliable or stable experience using Bluetooth LE on PC at the moment. Windows 10 is an always evolving service, it would make sense for them to look at bringing their support inline with other platforms at some point.

I understand that Bluetooth LE is problematical, but I don't understand why Bluetooth Classic was dropped from Apex. The version built in to the 4 should still work with the Apex, shouldn't it?
