Ideal for AirPods

This tiny utility adds an icon to the menu bar that enables you to connect or disconnect a particular Bluetooth device from your Mac with a single click. You choose which device from your Mac’s list of Bluetooth devices, and you can set a global shortcut, so you don’t even need the menu icon.
It’s designed for AirPods, really: any other Bluetooth audio device must be actively disconnected from any other devices it’s working with before you can connect it from your Mac. Apple’s smarter wireless tech in the AirPods doesn’t require this, and can switch seamlessly as soon as you click Tooth Fairy’s icon – and it works great for this, enabling connections in fewer clicks than the Bluetooth menu.
It’s still kind of useful (if less instant and convenient) for other Bluetooth headphones and speakers. But it’s very limited – being able to have icons/shortcuts for more than one device would be good – and we encountered a stability problem when changing which device it worked with.
the bottom line. Good for AirPods users, middling for others. But cheap!
