Additional information on Bluetooth support and an example video can be found here
One way latency is in the order of 4-5ms. What you’re experiencing is definitely not normal. Are you getting this with the example projects too?
Either way, raise your issue on the users forum mentioned above, and people may be able to assist you.
You might be running with “Debug” rather than with “Run”, and the “force close” you’re seeing has a “waiting for debugger connection” on top, which means it just let’s you kill the app if you’re tired of waiting, but will eventually go away by itself when the debugger connects.
This message looks awfully similar to the “force close” you’re getting for an uncaught exception. I was bitten by it myself a few times…
It’s all open source:
What’s incomplete about it?
News - The IOIO and Android Base…
about 4 years ago
Allow me to clarify a bit: the IOIO ships with a bootloader and ‘stock’ firmware installed. The latter can be upgraded / modified with no need for a programmer: the bootloader just pulls a new image from the phone. For that purpose, you’ll need to install a dedicated app on your Android phone. This app does not exist yet on the Android market, but soon will (for free of course).
If you want to upgrade the bootloader, then a programmer is needed. As a1ronzo mentioned, the IOIO itself could function as a programmer for another IOIO, and programming would be done with this same app that’s coming soon.
This is pretty much the same way as it works in Arduino, where you rarely need to upgrade the bootloader, but can do so with another Arduino when needed.

I’m working on it and making nice progress. Should be ready soon. Will support seamless fallback to ADB whenever ADK is not available.
Has been done.
It is fairly simple. Might post a step-by-step tutorial on this at some point. In the meanwhile, you may want to check cellbots.com
Bluetooth has higher latency and lower bandwidth than what can be achieved via USB.
IOIO has ~3ms one-way latency and ~300KB/s throughput.
Bluetooth + microcontroller board is also a little more expensive and somewhat more complicated to setup for the novice.
No public wish lists :(
