Very disappointing if supposed to be usable by non techies. Tendency to disconnect and require unpairing after flashing code. Needs work.
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..
I've been looking at the reviews and I think this is better working on different divice. as this is developed by Samsung mobile I would guess this is made to work with their phones made within the last year or so. Can someone confirm this works on the Samsung Galaxy s6 edge?
I have a microbit and its pink love it I love coding its easy
Can't pair with bluetooth on Galaxy s3
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
* Fixed the issue with runtime permissions on pairing activity
