Edit, no PC inbetween as asked in there comment. The BBC Micro:Bit is amazing. Most of the app is perfect but you can't connect via bluetooth after the 2nd connection. Having to go into BT settings then un-pairing, then back into the app and re-pairing is a headache. Works fine connected to the desktop. However the goal is to get youngsters into coding and most families don't have a desktop. Got smart devices though. If the app was running perfectly i'd probably have given it a go on a UDOO NEO or a Pin64
Poor app, let's down BBC Microbit Installed this on my wife's Nexus 9, it freezes the tablet and won't Bluetooth pair correctly. On my Samsung tablet it works perfectly, coincidence? I think not. Using a laptop instead to flash hex files as this app is woeful. Would give it 0/5 if I could.
I'm getting "DFU not a valid HEX file" on Nexus 6 every time I try to flash code - have tried unpairing, reinstalling the app, you name it. I'd really love to make it work!
Better now Latest version much better. Can now take photos on my phone via micro:but control. Only gripe is I have to re-pair everytime I flash new code to the micro:bit
NTG Well done Samsung update 11/11/2016 has the app working well on my Galaxy 4 Tab and J3 phone. Good job. Good fun when these things work.
Can't pair with Pixel Have this app working OK on a Nexus 7 but on my Google Pixel I cannot pair. I go through the procedure and the micro:bit shows the expected tick at the end of the process indicating that it thinks it's paired successfully but the Samsung app says it failed to pair.
