It worked on a Pixel 4a. Setup is slightly tricky because you have to pair the NXT using Android's bluetooth settings before launching the app. (And don't forget to turn on Bluetooth on the NXT.) The user interface is pretty basic. It's not clear which motor is connected to which control, so try them all. Some are "tank controls" which means you need to swipe up or down. There isn't a way to just turn a motor on and leave it running, so if you want to do that, you'll need a different app. Still, it's good enough to make sure the NXT works over Bluetooth.

Quite good! Certainly does the job, the range is good and the various control schemes really open up a lot of possibilities. One suggestion, when tabbed out of the app, it seems to have to reset the connection when tabbing back in.

For being an app designed to control nxt 1.0/1.1 it works really well! Also there are zero ads, though I wish you would update it considering I get a warning on android 9. Other than that, love it!

What's new

Should now work on some older phones like HTC Desire where previously the connection would always fail.

Fixed an issue where having unrelated devices paired with the phone caused the application to crash.
