Good for its purpose, device list UI can be unresponsive
I wanted to use this to debug my Adafruit Feather, a Bluefruit LE device and when it works, it works well for this purpose. It shows a list of Bluetooth devices and you can click to connect to one, and then send/receive text with the device.
However, the list of Bluetooth devices is buggy: frequently I can’t get it to connect to a specific device; it is unresponsive to clicks. My workaround is to Clear the list and try again, and usually it comes right up.
Otherwise it’s just the tool I needed!
Theoretically could work with the first alphabetic ordered BLE Peripheral Name...
I can’t connect to my office’s Apple TV, nor should I. But that is the only device this app will attempt to connect to apparently because it is the first peripheral from the standpoint of an alphabetic ordering of local peripheral names. I have no idea what this would do with a peripheral (nRF52 BLE UART) that I could connect to.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
