Bluetooth Viewer LITE

Bluetooth Viewer LITE


This app is a simple Bluetooth connection debugging tool:

1. Connect to any Bluetooth device
2. Display incoming raw data
3. Send raw data to the Bluetooth device

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

I plan to add the following features in the future:

* Option to see data in hexadecimal format instead of ascii, for debugging binary data
* Option to add timestamp to incoming messages
* Option to add GPS info to incoming messages
* Design a plugin framework for customized views tailored to specific Bluetooth sensors

Disclaimer: the source code is a modified version of the BluetoothChat sample that is included in the Android SDK.

Donation: If you like this app, I would appreciate a small donation as a token of your appreciation, via PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=JQC3BC8XLWMNE

Alternatively, you can support me by buying the full version of the app, which has exactly the same features but it costs 1 EUR: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.bluetoothviewer.full

Recent changes:
* Migrated to Android 4.0+ (min API level 14)
* Do not re-request enable bluetooth request while there is already one in progress.
This mitigates, but does not solve the issue of multiple request dialogs https://github.com/janosgyerik/bluetoothviewer/issues/2

This app rocks for one reason This app made it possible to connect my Withing's Pulse with my HTC One X in 5 seconds after spending weeks NOT being able to connect. Download and use this app if you too lost the ability to sync with a recent software update to your Pulse. It'll be months before Withings fixes this, if ever.

Doesn't connect I've never managed to make this app connect to me Bluetooth headset. It seems to be rather useless.
