I’ve mentioned a number of iBeacons resources most recently an example of a punch clock that uses geofencing to automatically tracker worker entries and exits.

Here’s a library called Discovery allowing you to detect and discovery, and information transferring between nearby devices using bluetooth low energy from Ömer Faruk Gül.

One of the issues with using iBeacons is that you can’t advertise your device as an iBeacon if the app is running in the background, but using BLE this is no issue.

Discovery hides the details of working with the lower level bluetooth low energy allowing you to share a device id, verify a key value, and retrieve data.

You can find Discovery on Github here.

A nice library for device discovery and data transfer using BLE.
