Update fixed previous force close issues.
I'm really disappointed by Particle's support of Linux and Android as a whole. I tried for over 20 minutes to connect to my Photon via my Android phone connected to my Ubuntu (14.04) laptop as a power source with no avail. However I tried connecting it directly to a USB outlet to isolate the issue and was finally able to connect. I have fully come to the opinion that Particle is a product designed for California hipsters who think that they are "Hardware Developers" by tapping buttons that only work on specific platforms. I have been far more impressed with my NodeMCU for the cost, the headache, and flexibility.
Im pissed baught 2 of these and this app does not recognize either of them it seems the makers of this product do not know how to program in anything other then apple products. Im using a samsung s5 running android 6.0.1 and no matter what it does not see eitherbof the two photons 8 do hope the makers of this product will have someobe address this issue.
garbage tool is not reliable. I have had for months and it fails 80 percent of the time. Server login consistently fails. I try to like this system, but it is not very good. I dont trust it, it fails more than it works. Dont waste your money. Buy a electricIMP instead or some littlebits.
This is so much easier than provisioning all the other types of microcontrollers I have tried. Occasionally there is an issue like somebody had already claimed the device and then returned it, but an occasional issue is sooooooo much better than other platforms that are really hard every time. If you have an issue that you cannot figure out then I would purchase a new photon. The next one will work and they are not too expensive.
Doesn't work Haven't been able to login for about three months now. On startup, after filling in my credentials, the app crashes... Go fix Spark!
