LightBlue can test all of your devices that use Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (also known as Bluetooth Smart, or Bluetooth Light).
LightBlue has two modes, Central and Peripheral. In Central mode you can scan and connect to all devices around you. You can also clone any peripheral you connect to and make that clone a peripheral of LightBlue. In peripheral mode, your iOS devices simulates your peripheral hardware. You can add and rename services and characteristics.
Full support of read, write, and notify is included. You can view the signal strength (RSSI) to get an idea of how close you are to the peripheral.
Use this to test your new BLE Heart Rate Monitor, temperature sensor, TI CC2540 Keyfob, Nordic uBlue, Panasonic PAN1720, etc.
Developers can use LightBlue to test the hardware or firmware of their BTLE peripherals.

What's New in Version 2.2.3
Helpful tho not frustration-free
Was able to find my Fitbit Flex in a large field after weed-whacking, finally got a reading in the low 50s and was able to find it under a pile a weeds. But a couple weeks later I noticed the Fitbit was gone from my wrist, connected it to my iPhone in the house but got weird readings from LightBlue: standing in one place it would jump from 90 to 60 by moving it an inch. Search thru drawers, baskets, under stuff, reading would jump up and down up to 90+, down to 51. Went to other side of room, same thing. If I had a cat or mice I would have thought the animal was moving it around. Gave up, Fitbit battery went dead, found it last night without LightBlue, upstairs on floor of closet (so both the phone & LightBlue had been reading the Fitbit thru the ceiling, tho raising it toward ceiling did not lower reading). Best reading I can get with Fitbit touching phone w/ app open is 27, low 30s is more normal, move it an inch from phone, it jumps to 45+. So yes, it can work miracles, until it doesn’t. Glad I have it. Wish Fitbit would make a better wristband that didn’t fall off so often.
Lost my Charge HR. in my bedroom. I last saw it on my dresser. Using light blue I found it inside of an empty bag of chips in one of the garbage bags set to go out. My youngest was the culprit. Thank God I found about this app...
Worked as it said it would!!!
Found my FitBit tracker!!!
