Best Bluetooth Module for Mac


I've been having a lot of trouble with trying to find a bluetooth module that will establish a connection and communicate with my Macbook Pro (Late 2014). I would like to have a bluetooth module connected to the Arduino and some other component like a potentiometer. I would like to rotate the potentiometer and have that data sent from a bluetooth module into my computer to speak with other programs such as Max MSP or PD.

Does anyone have experience with connecting a bluetooth module to a Mac and sending messages from the Arduino? I have tried both the HC-05 and HC-08 and had no luck connecting to Mac despite following a bunch of tutorials. If it helps at all, I was able to connect my HC-08 to my iPhone with the app Bluetooth Serial Lite, but that app does not exist for MacOS.
