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.

This app has been great in the past but today when I tried to DFU my bluetooth modules the app crashed repeatedly. I hope that this is a known issue with the most recent release and it will be fixed.

Almost perfect app. Would be nice if it could remember the data type of characteristic when reading and writing and render it readable by humans, not in hex. Edit: thanks for the quick response. I did not mean automatic parsing. In the app I can already choose from many types to write to characteristic. But the next time you write, you have to select the type again. The last selected type can be used for the next input and also for the rendering of the received values and ideally survive restart
