Description

The micro:bit app is the essential companion to the BBC micro:bit, the pocket sized programmable computer. The app provides online access to a choice of code editors for programming your micro:bit and, when your program is ready, the app beams it to the micro:bit via Bluetooth wireless. Easy-to-follow screens lead you through the process of pairing your iPad (or iPhone) to the micro:bit and then transferring your program code.
Compared with previous versions, the micro:bit app Version 3 contains these additional features:
• Pair with any number of micro:bits
• Choose which micro:bit is currently connected
• Store HEX files in the app
• Choose a HEX file for flashing
• Export and delete HEX files
• Import stored HEX files directly into JavaScript Blocks editor
• Rapid download from JavaScript Blocks editor
• Monitor data detected by micro:bit sensors
• Use the range of micro:bit Bluetooth services in real time
• Display messages on the micro:bit LEDs
• Send control commands to the micro:bit buttons and pins
• De-bug your program code while it is running in the micro:bit
• Use a simulated gamepad to send commands to the micro:bit
• View camera images ready for taking photos or video

As well as providing more flexible handling of your program scripts and HEX files, a major addition in Version 3 is the Monitor and Control page. This lets you observe real-time data from the micro:bit sensors, send messages directly to the LEDs and control the micro:bit buttons and pins from your iPad or iPhone. Monitor is ideal for exploiting Bluetooth services in real time, and for de-bugging your program code while it is running in the micro:bit.

Doesn't work

Using iOS 10 on iPad Pro, click 'send us your feedback' crashes app. Also cannot pair microbit. I tried copying .hex using pxt editor with and without bluetooth package, also with older blocks editor. Clicking a + b and reset, release reset doesn't initiate pairing.

You've got to be kidding me

I read the first reviewer and thought it can't be that bad. Well it's worse. Nothing works...
