Check out the very first beta release of the Adafruit Bluefruit LE desktop application. This is an application that lets you interact with Bluefruit LE and other Bluetooth low energy devices right from your Mac OSX, Windows, and Linux desktop. Just like the iOS and Android app you can do things like:
- View BLE device information like services, characteristics, and read characteristic values. Great for checking the firmware version of a device using its device information service.
- Send and receive data with a BLE UART, like controlling an Arduino project over BLE.
- Send control pad and color picker values to a BLE device over its UART connection.
- Visualize a BNO-055 absolute orientation sensor using a 3D model.
Check out the releases tab of the application’s home on GitHub to get the latest binary release. Be sure to check out the README.md file too to see instructions for using it on your platform. If you run into issues be sure to raise them on GitHub.
