This app pairs with the micro:bit from a Samsung Galaxy S5, but has a GATT error transferring files. Ironic that a Samsung app won't work on a Samsung device. I cannot recommend this app for use in education. Don't even tell the kids because it is a big waste of time.
Sad that this is the only app for the micro:bit. The only useful features (uploading hex files and connecting) don't work well enough to have my students use it. I'm using an HTC one m8. The initial pairing fails in the app and must be completed via the phone's settings. After finally getting it to pair, the hex uploading and connect features fail every time. Tried unpairing and repairing but I get the same error that it couldn't connect.
Got it to pair after sometime ,the pairing code if far to fast to enter. After getting it pair the app failed to flush the micro bit, bit disappointed with this app is it supposed to be official one
Pairs fine and codes fine on Galaxy A6 Tab. Flashes examples ok as well. The big problem is that I cant save my own code or flash it over, get an error about only http allowed. Maybe I have missed something but this is meant to be for non techies.
New Pairing works well, much better. But trying to flash over Blutooth gives GATT error every time. Samsung app on a Samsung device? Oh i keep forgetting we have to put the Microbit into pairing mode before flashing. Slightly counter intuitive but it works. Must remember.
Cannot connect with Bluetooth on Nexus 5/Android 6.0.1. Pairs OK using Android settings but app does not list it as a paired phone and cannot connect. Tried forgetting in BT settings and using visual pairing via the app. This also fails - phone scans for micro bit after pattern entered but never finds it and times out. Have reset flash memory with new block app over USB, no difference. Very poor experience..
