“Bluetooth Smart”. “Bluetooth Low Energy”. These are phrases that have become increasingly common in recent years. Anyone working in a technology field has probably used, or at least encountered, BLE technology in their day-to-day life. Whether wireless beacons that provide additional wireless functionality, wearable fitness devices, smartwatches, or ‘smart lock’ technology, BLE surrounds us.
Obviously, it becomes useful to be able to explore the BLE environment around you, or to be able to debug your own BLE-enabled peripherals.
BlueSee aims to address this need; it provides a simple way to examine the peripherals which are advertising around you, to connect to them, and explore the services they expose. It also provides a simple method for extending BlueSee’s capabilities to custom BLE protocols, using the Lua scripting language.
BlueSee is meant primarily for hardware developers who need a quick way to interact with prototype devices for testing. However, it is also a useful tool for those who are merely curious about what their local BLE environment is like.
There are a great many interesting things chattering between each other to be found in the average office or home, after all!
* Ability to parse advertisements by local name
* Ability to parse advertisements by service data
* Several bespoke bugfixes, just for you!

I needed to get some info about a BLE device. This app was faster and easier than a couple Android apps that I was trying to use.
