Make Sure Your Mac Has Bluetooth 4.0 - If the app continuously prompts you to turn bluetooth on, it is probably because your computer does not have Bluetooth 4.0.

Can’t get past "Turn Bluetooth On" - App will not launch, hanging on dialog “Turn Bluetooth ON” even though Bluetooth is on.

Lost FITBIT - I lost my Fitbit and was able to sync, so knew it was in or near the house. I searched without luck and then read a recommendation for this app. I installed on my iPhone and the signal started upstairs and increased as I moved downstairs, outside, and to the car. This app worked like a champ - found the lost Fitbit in the car!

Solution: Add Bluetooth LE (4.0) to an old mac - Hello, This application works also with third party BTLE dongle on a Mac - WITHOUT DRIVER UPDATE… I just purchased the IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter (GBU521) that is just $12 on amazon, plugged it in… And it just works!!! Amazing!!!

Great app for helping test BLE devices and code - This app has been great for testing my BLE development data. I purchased the dongle that they promote through the app as I have an older Macbook Air and it worked a charm. It also works in the current version of the XCode simulator so you don't need to run out and pick up a new iOS device immediately.

Good tool for bluetooth low energy sensor development - This is a solid, basic tool that was able to pinpoint a problem in a bluetooth low energy communication link. Big help in determining that a BLE112 development board was working, and that the problem was in my data format. The write services in hex or ascii are key for troubleshooting. Used on a 2011 MacBook Air with integrated BT 4.0 where the built-in bluetooth software had not been discovering my low energy BT devices. Thanks!
