Version 1.5 of Beacon Scanner and Logger (Free) is here - now featuring Eddystone support

Version 1.5 of Beacon Scanner and Logger (free) is now available on Google Play.

The app now supports Eddystone, and where an Eddystone-URL beacon is detected the URL is rendered as a clickable link, which means you can immediately open the web resource the beacon is directing users to.

There's a new real time log file, which has a fixed name and only ever contains a single entry, that enables simple Tasker integration. This is a feature that's been requested by a couple of users so I hope it's useful to a wider audience.

Source code is available via GitHub.

If anyone has any feature requests, bug reports, or comments please let me know.

Happy scanning. :)
