Nordic UART Service (NUS) is a pretty handy way of implementing a serial data transfer service over BLE. The nRF Toolbox on Android makes it very easy to test it, however I could not find any such program (or driver) for PC (any OS, any language) that could do the same.
I have looked around a lot, and have come to the conclusion that such a program doesnt exist, or isn't shared. If this is so then I would still be glad to see any example code on how to implement such a program.
It would be great if anyone could point me in the right direction. And of course, if anyone knows of any such programs do let me know.
Just to clarify, I do know that I can use nRF Connect to do something similar, however I cannot write a custom program with it, to handle and interact with the data transmitted. This is why i am looking for something that can be built upon. Of course it will be helpful to others as well.
Nordic Semiconductor has a Github account. They show how to interact with the NUS service in this Github repo.
You could use the nRFUart Example in the Master Emulator API (220.127.116.11).
See devzone.nordicsemi.com/.../ for changes needed to make it work.
Thanks. I will have a deep look into the iOS app on the repo.
For now I was able to work-around using hcitool and gatttool on ubuntu, which worked flawlessly.
