JMCiBeaconManager

iBeacon is a name of technology that is enabling new location awareness possibilities for apps. "Leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a device with iBeacon technology can be used to establish a region around an object. This allows an iOS device to determine when it has entered or left the region, along with an estimation of proximity to a beacon."
🔶

An iBeacon Manager library was created to simplify your interactions with iBeacons. In essence it serves several roles:

  1. Checking the iBeacon permission matrix
  2. Registering & listening for nearby beacons
  3. Detecting nearby beacons
  4. Visualizing nearby beacons in a radar look like custom made user interface.
