    Has anyone here had luck getting their Penpal connected to a Chromebook?

    I can get Bluetooth on the Chromebook to detect the Penpal and on the Penpal, it can find the Chromebook, however, when I actually try to send a picture, it won't work.

    I can get the Penpal to work with my phone just fine though...

    Anyone?

    Interesting heads-up. Sorry, can't help there; I had considered getting the Penpal, but didn't in the end. I use a Chromebook, however, so would actually also appreciate a solution.

    I'm going to need to debug the Bluetooth stack and figure out how the handshaking between the penpal and the chromebook works. I don't think the penpal stays on while the camera is on, rather, it only turns on when it transfers pictures...

    My phone (LG G3) seems to handle this just fine, but the chromebook doesn't.
