This thing did not pair with my sensor, even though it showed up on my native Bluetooth menu. It also failed for my partner (but not for the rest of the class), so we know it was our version of the app and not our phones. Would not recommend!

So we were going on a school trip and we were needed to calculate results using this app.....however this app is very difficult to use on devices such as mobile phones....it feels very clunky and while it may be a good way to demonstrate and show off a graph. I feel as though this app is very luckluster and not worth your time. Warning to any future schools considering using this app! When going on school field trips....I can give you one phrase.....its simply not worth your time.

We spent two hours trying to get this to work in class. The Airlink 2 is awful and will not connect and the app has a terrible user interface. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for their thirteenth reason. If you are told that you have to use this in school, run and never look back.
