Arduino Companion is an app for designed to help anyone getting into Arduino and electronics. The app contains the full Arduino Reference for offline use, as well as a handy resistor calculator.
Version 1.1 adds the two most requested features, but feel free to suggest any features you feel is missing or would like added.
What's New in Version 1.1
- Full inter-app navigation implemented, so any cached page will open inside the app (not in external browser)
- Full text search implemented
- Missing class overview-pages added
- New classes for the Arduino Leonardo added (Mouse and Keyboard support!)
- Minor bug fixes
Perfect reference for mission-critical situations!
I got this because my cat stole my hard copy Arduino reference book to build herself some kind of heavily-armored dog-tormenting tank and I needed to come up with some way to stop her before she got to PetSmart. I was unsuccessful, but that wasn't really the app's fault, and it has come in handy while working on laser-pointer-based entertainment projects for our new feline overlord, Jellicle.
Looks good, but....
This app is nice and it has a lot of useful information, but the UI is just awful. It really need to just be converted into the native iOS UI. The interface really lets the app down, it is pixelated (especially on iPad), laggy, and buggy. If you tap a button it will highlight and just sit there. Sometimes you have to press the button two or three times to finally get it to go. Even then, the UI often freezes between transitions and requires a force quit. Please just go to the native UI and make this app useable!
This is the best arduino source out there's
So I have been trying to learn arduino coding for a while now and this app has helped so incredibly much.
Thank you so much to the creater of this app
