Hi, I bought this on eBay.
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.
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.
