I've been using this since it came out but I just figured out a really crazy use for it. I've been able to sniff Bluetooth transmissions passively without the phone being rooted. Maybe it was always possible and I just didn't know but I am overjoyed. So what you do is connect the devices app you're sniffing and then open this app and select the logger by going to the device and swiping right. It then shows the data transmissions. I've been able to reverse engineer some of my devices.

This app is awesome. I lost a little white Nest temperature sensor (BLE) that I keep in the attic, it fell in the middle of the attic's white insulation, I spent 1 hour digging around the insulation with no luck, I gotta hopeless... but using this app, it took me just 5 minutes to find the sensor, I just configured the app filter to show me the strong signals and I knew the sensor sends data every 10 seconds. So, I just moved my phone around looking for the right signal and its strength.

The application was working great. However, after switching to Android 14, when disconnecting from peripheral devices, I started receiving the error " bt_att: Unhandled ATT code 0x1d" on the peripheral device's log screen. It worked fine when connected to the same device via an Android 13 smartphone. Please fix this bug.
