looks simple and effective. im going to connect it to an adium script.

You can find a nice review and some useful scripts on http://hollington.ca/technocrat/?p=44 .

Could you send me your scripts? That's exactly what I'd like Proximity to do. Thanks in advance...

I've been looking for this app since i got my first mac with bluetooth. It's wonderful.

I'm using it with my phone [nokia 6233] and it works like a charm.

I've set it up with my own custom applescripts which I'd be happy to share. They do the following:

When going out of range:
- If iTunes is open, pause whatever is playing
- If Adium is open, set my status to away
- Start the screensaver

When coming back into range:
- Turn off the screensaver
- If Adium is open, set my status to available
- If iTunes is open, start playing
- Open iSync, and if the last sync wasn't in the last 24 hours, sync, otherwise quit.

Excellent App.

This is a nice little utility. I use to to automatically sync my cell phone when it comes into range. One feature I would like to see is the ability to monitor more than just one device.
