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.

Really useful for analysing devices. The only downfall is that you can't receive notifications from a characteristic that won't accept a subscription request, even though it is sending notifications (client side only enable). I have seen several devices that act like this, and the notifications can be received by their 'proper' app and also show in the android device hci_snoop log.
