Harald Scan Bluetooth Scanner

Little while ago I found a nice scanner for bluetooth devices called Harald Scan.

Harald Scan

Harald Scan

Harald Scan works on both Linux and Mac OS X but not in Windows.

It scan’s bluetooth devices and recocnize someof them via first 8 character of
their MAC address. Scanner shows some info about found devices like MAC-address, Name, Class and Vendor.
You can find Harald Scan here: https://code.google.com/p/haraldscan/

It has pretty simple text based UI which shows found devices pretty clearly:

Harald Scan seems to be much slower to find bluetooth devices than example ghettotooth but IMHO Harald Scan is better cos it doesn’t show same devices multiple times asnd Harald Scan write nice log file for later use.
