    Got this to match my new water flosser. It connects to an app that shows you how efficiently you are brushing your teeth. An amazing feature that I will no doubt use for a week before the novelty wears off :p

    I think these are the ones that require special heads and not the usual OralB ones? It's the only reason I stuck with a more standard model of theirs.

    And yes on the app - used it twice! It requires location enabled to function on Android...

    I bought that after a strong recommendation from my dentist that it cleans better than other toothbrushes. It certainly felt a lot stronger than my current toothbrush. But after spending hours researching I couldn't find any evidence of it, other than it simply connecting to an app which I wouldn't use anyway. I also realised my current toothbrush was quite old and would have lost some power so naturally any new toothbrush would feel better. So I sent it back before opening it. Let me know how you get on with it though.

    But look at that packaging, I'm like a moth drawn to light

    If you go on the basis of 4 heads a year, it’s about £27 a year. I’m ok with that tbh.

    That'll most likely be because any application targeting Android 11 or lower (pretty much every app considering 12 hasn't been released yet), ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission must be declared in the Manifest if Bluetooth is being used, which the app will use considering the connection to the toothbrush is via Bluetooth. I.e. they're most likely not getting your location, it's more a technical oversight of the permission system on Android.

    Looks like they're changing this with Android 12 and later:

    Great stuff thanks @mrk tried a few freebies which connected to my Carista dongle but weren't the best of apps.

    That's really interesting, thank you. It's the same with an oven thermometer I have! That does appear to explain it.

    Thanks to @EVH I got a steal on a Raspberry Pi 3+. In hindsight I should have got it comfortable/hidden away before making it my DNS server. I'm not having huge success in getting Shinobi setup (lots of ffmpeg failures) but working on it.

    Everyone is allowed to buy one electric toothbrush in their life. No justification, no finger pointing.

    You do it twice though, and it's open season.

    It is a great little app that's evolved a lot over the years (been a user since the early days so seen how drastically it's changed). The coding features are particularly nice if you get the universal version license as can then tweak hidden features and things of any car too!

    Some more oral action to replace the previous whose battery gave up the ghost...
