Bluetooth Viewer LITE

Bluetooth Viewer LITE


This is a simple Bluetooth connection debugging tool.
It works with Bluetooth devices that broadcast text data.

1. Connect to a Bluetooth device
2. Display incoming raw text data line by line (if the device broadcasts such data)
3. Send raw text data to the connected device

You can confirm successful pairing, monitor incoming raw text data and see exactly what is being transmitted from the Bluetooth device.

I plan to add the following features in the future:

* Support Bluetooth devices that broadcast binary data, not only text
* Option to see data in hexadecimal format instead of text
* Option to add timestamp to incoming messages
* Option to add GPS info to incoming messages
* Plugin framework for customized views tailored to specific Bluetooth devices, especially various types of sensors

Please report problems or feature requests by email or using this page: https://github.com/janosgyerik/bluetoothviewer/issues

* Alan Haddy (www.ipegcorp.com): option to record incoming Bluetooth
data and send as email attachment

Happy Bluetooth debugging :)

Recent changes:
New option to enable mock devices in the settings, off by default. Mock devices are useful mainly for developers, to test the app's functions easily without having a real Bluetooth device

Works on Android smartphone and tablet (4.2, 4.4). Shows more info than any of my machines' OS software does. Would by interesting to see vulnerabilities in Bluetooth (4.0) connections, like if keys on a Bluetooth keyboard are securely transmitted to the device its paired with.
