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.

Found my Fitbit not where you'd expect!
I went hiking yesterday and halfway through noticed my Fitbit flex missing from my wrist (not the first time it's fallen off). We backtracked and searched the whole trail but no luck.
Today, I realized we didn't try syncing the app to narrow down the search area. I went back today and long story short, was able to narrow it down to a 40 ft then a 10 ft span of trail. Still couldn't find it though and was feeling desperate with my phone battery also depleting fast. I looked up what other people did and saw this app recommended, downloaded it, and it immediately picked up my flex.
The little meter kept showing when I was getting closer, but strangely, not when I held my phone close to the ground. I start trusting the meter and not logic, moving my phone higher and higher. I turn around and BAM - my Fitbit is hanging there in a branch, level with my eyes. I have NO idea how it got there, maybe it really flung off my wrist when my dog pulled the leash?! Either way, wouldn't have found it without this app!!! Thank you!!!
Worth $149 Fitbit found 2 weeks later, WOW
Thank you, Punch Through folks, for making this free. A great utility, free, and worth so much to the person with a lost device. I love to help developers in this manor, supporting when they don't demand a price!
This app was recommended at the Fitbit website. My brother lost his Fitbit in 1 of 5 piles of wood and trash waste from a clean up in various locations on a 7 acre farm.
Within 3 minutes of starting this app, it registered a Fitbit - Charge model with -97 RSSI while still 50 feet from one pile. After circling the nearest 10 diameter wood and stick waste pile, found the strongest signal on the southwest corner, now reaching -69 RSSI. Started placing the iPad in a few spots waiting 5 seconds at each spot to get an signal update. Now seeing -45 RSSI, I removed the iPad and looked on the waste pile at the edge of the larger pile, and WOW within 1 foot, saw a portion of a black band sticking out of the pile.
Fitbit still had 1/2 battery after waiting in the waste pile for about 2 weeks. This gives hope to those who loose their Fitbit, hope that it will be found, and that everyone should have this app before they loose their device. Try practicing when you already know where it is.
This is amazing! I am not a technical person but I figured out how to download LightBlue to my Iphone after losing my Fitbit. My dashboard showed it had synced today so it had to be in the house. I walked around with my Iphone and watched the numbers go up and down. It kept going down when I walked past the sofa. I stuck my hand down in the seams and low and behold this old Texan found her Fitbit. I am in awe!!!
