Bluetooth File Exchange is a utility that comes with the Mac OS X operating system, used to exchange files to or from a Bluetooth-enabled device. For example, it could be used to send an image to a cellphone, or to receive an image or other documents from a PDA.

As of Tiger (OS X 10.4.6), Bluetooth File Exchange supports:

  • Receiving files, including multiple selected files
  • Sending files
  • Creating remote folders
  • Navigating into a folder by double clicking


  • Cannot get or put folders
  • Cannot move items on the remote device
  • Keyboard shortcuts such as cmd-↓ to open a folder are not recognised
  • Does not provide an AppleScript interface


A preference item (cmd-,) is the default action on launching the app, where a user can choose to:

  • Browse (select and view the directories of a remote device)
  • Send file (the default)
  • Do nothing
