Carleton Beacons App
Carleton Beacons is a universal iOS app that leverages Bluetooth beacons located around the Carleton College campus to provide contextual information about various exhibits and landmarks. It uses the Estimote SDK for iOS to communicate with Estimote beacons attached to each exhibit.

Use of Location Services
One of the first thing that happens when you launch this app is a prompt that asks you to allow the app to use Location Services. Don't worry though; it won't drain your battery because it doesn't use GPS at all. Low energy Bluetooth beacon technology falls under the broad Location Services umbrella, so in order for this app to be able to do anything, it must have access to Location Services (and Bluetooth must be turned on).
