Love this app! It gets the job done and has a little personality that’s fun.

Great tool for learning how Bluetooth LE works.

Will show ewe. The iOB. Parasitic Unknowns

....... where do my reviews keep failing....

Works for now. But freezes all the time when i try connecting to my favorite unknown devices of choice.

Connect to your friends entire cattlog of personal BLE and see what happens. Try it out for fun sometimes painfully shocking results. You’re all going to love it. Be owned by the nothing. BLE happy.

This has a nice look and display layout with a fair amount of data. BUT it can NOT be configured to display the MAC addresses of the devices it discovers. Which made it nearly useless for my application/ needs. I could of possibly lived with the loss had it displayed the devices announced names. But all the devices were listed as Unnamed. 😕
So I had to delete the app. 🙁

Developer Response ,

Apple doesn’t give app access to see the MAC address unfortunately so there is no way for us to show it. The unnamed devices do not include a name in the advertisement data otherwise it would be shown
