Kids + cloud = NOPE!

You can’t do a single thing in this app without creating an account. That’s a huge red flag for me. The devices our son uses are not even connected to the internet. He did not really get exposed to marketing until after he was 6-7. I consider that one of the best things I have ever done for him. I can see what is going on here... So, no. Just no.

*update* I thought that perhaps I should preview it and give them a chance. It is sometimes a burden to know how predictable people are. They crowd sourced the education out to OTHER KIDS! It promises to give projects based on the bits you own, but all it returns is messy garbage “look what I did” style vanity brag posts that mostly tell the person trying to learn nothing about WHY the bits are doing what they do. So great, we are teaching a generation to assemble things and brag about it. This app is a missed opportunity that really could have added value, but instead they just wanted to use it to make kids jealous of the bits they don’t have... sick. My child will never see it. No big loss it adds very little.

*Update 2*
Lol, worse yet. The “lessons” just seem to be pulled from a web source and have files and links that don’t work from within the app! Let’s frustrate the kids while we’ll try to bilk them.

Good, but improvements would be nice.

I had an ‘exciting’ adventure with customer support, having lost my cloudbit microSD card (User error! Not their fault!) they were really nice, gave me a (bugged) tool to UPDATE the firmware. I found an img of the firmware online. however it does Not support iPad mini 4 screen, so I had annoying black borders. Please just add this API, it would make my day. Functionality-wise, it works fine, I signed in with my Google account and it was able to set up after a few tries, works great!

Pretty good

I just got it, and found it easy to understand! Dunno how it will turn out, but all parts work for now. Hard to find more uses though.
