History 📓

itracing2 is a free and open source application allowing to manage "iTag" devices.

Around 2015, Bluetooth LE (or Bluetooth 4) became popular on smartphones and a lot of gadget-keyring-bluetooth-brands rised from nowhere (think about smart things). It was the begining of "IoT" for everyone and low cost devices from China invaded the market 😾 .

Because "no name company" are only interested by selling devices, software were incredibly unusable.

Customers and myself were so disappointated that i decided to create my own application.

In 2021, Apple released his AirTags 😮 . That's pretty smart because those devices are pretty cheap and by using iPhone/iPad as sensors, AirTags can be found anywhere in the Earth. Yes, every AirTags have an unique device id 👍 and i suppose that Apple knows who is the owner of a dedicated AirTag.

Do you BLE? ⚙️

If you want to learn more about BLE, there a lot of article on internet.

iTracing2 implementes "Proximity Profile" and should be compatible with a lot of devices.. BUT because chinese iTag are so badly built, i hardcoded some stuff. (prefer Quintic PROXPR chip if you can)

How that works?
