The essential Bluetooth app for scanning and locating your smart devices from Apple, FitBit, Garmin, and many other companies.
Scan and identify nearby devices. Locate devices by signal strength, heat map or direction finder.
You can now find Fitbit and other Bluetooth devices that are paired with your iPhone. If the Bluetooth device is paired with another iPhone, turn off Bluetooth on that iPhone.
Blue Hound is always scanning for Bluetooth devices. When a device is detected, Blue Hound identifies it by name, maker and model when possible. It does this using a large database of smart recognizers that are updated automatically. Devices you find are uploaded to the cloud to help you search for them later.
Blue Hound works great with Bluetooth tags. If you attach one to your keys, you can locate them within 100 feet or more even outdoors in high grass. Attach one to your drone and you will be able to find it if it lands unexpectedly.
Scanning for Bluetooth devices can be a fun outdoor activity. Take Blue Hound out for a walk. Enable Power Saver Mode for Blue Hound in Settings and put your iPhone in your pocket upside down. The screen will go dark and the app will enter power saver mode. If you wish, Blue Hound can even bark to alert you when a new device is found.

• Real time Bluetooth scanner with signal strength and description

Great .. could use better explanation of map search
The app is great. I wish there was a better set of directions. When in map mode it state red means your close. It jumps from 300 feet to 11 a dot turns red . But no signal from device when this happens
Great live the app but the directions are lacking. Would love a video of use and explanation of dot line and all the screen candy
I literally just lost my wireless Powerbeats3 headset and I went into full crisis mode because I panic way faster than the average human.
I looked on the App Store for an app that might be able to help me find them. I thought nothing of that type existed until I found BlueHound. I saw that my iPad and Apple Watch were showing up as devices paired to my phone to be scanned, but not my headset. Then, a listing called Unknown Device appeared. I clicked on it to see the info and it had my exact street address. I pressed the scan button and walked around my house for probably a minute in a half. (Only took that long cause I was figuring out how to use the app which was easy).
After that time of walking around, the app lead me to the exact room that the headset was in. I looked around and turns out the were sitting right in front of me. BLUEHOUND WORKS!!😍💙🐶📱
BEST APP EVER!
I wrote something before but i am revising my review because it actually was a setting on my phone not the app. Anyways, this is by far the best best bluetooth finder app out there and believe me I have literally downloaded them all! The developer is awesome and responded to my email so fast and took the time to explain and troubleshoot the app with me. Truly a well done app and genius developer. Extremely happy with all of it and the direction finder is simply amazing to see it work! Even though it is made for outdoors, it works amazing indoors also! No problems here! Thank you for creating a great app! 10 stars!
