Bluetooth adapters for OBD2

I want to use the Torque Android App to read and display ECU sensor data in real time while I drive. You need to get a compatible Bluetooth adapter that plugs into your OBD2 port to transmit the signals to your phone. There are many options. Does anyone have experience with this and have a recommendation? I want one that is fast and can read a lot of PIDs, because I'm eventually planning on writing my own software for reading the data, including recording it. (I'm an engineer and a scientist, so measuring how the engine performance is being affected by mods is really interesting to me.)

I would have put helpful links to all these things here, but since I'm a newbie they are blocking my posts if I have links. So if you don't know what I'm talking about, google search "Torque Pro Android app" to see what it does, and "Torque wiki Bluetooth adapters" for a good list of many options.

My friend has that on his eclipse because his whole gauge cluster took a dump. He bought a cheap Bluetooth obd2 from eBay and used am old tablet he had. He used the free version of the app and he says it's alright. He has sent me videos and the rpm is really slow but everything else seems fine. He also tells me he doesn't trust it 100% but that's him.
