BLE Bluetooth shield Question

Hi, I bought this on eBay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271443087020?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I followed the tutorial, loaded the BLE_Shield_UNO_V12-3 sketch to the Mega, the LED3 blinks as described, however, neither my iPhone 5 or my iPad mini, both running iOS 8.2 failed to discover it. And the app it recommended ControlMore, a check on the app store, it is not available in the U.S.

Does anyone have experience using this shield? Any help will be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

BTW, There is also a similar product from ReadBearLab, http://redbearlab.com. I wonder if they are the same product but different mandator? This one does have an app on the app store, but it does not find the BLE shield.
