Have you ever been in this situation? You have just built your greatest robot ever with your NXT set! You run to the computer program it, and someone (Mom, Dad, Sibling, Roommate, etc.) is using the computer. What do you do? Usually, you end up waiting until they are done. nxtBlock eliminates that waiting! While nxtBlock doesn't warp time or make the person what to stop using the computer. It does allow you write a program for your NXT on your iDevice (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), plug your NXT into your computer, press the "Compile and Upload" button, select the computer your NXT is plugged into, Your program will transfer to your NXT and you now have a nice freshly programed NXT to play with! Yay!

What's New in Version 1.1
New pop-up alert system
'Else' block code fix
Minor "Compile and Upload" fixes
Miscellaneous Bug fixes
Has promise, save function still broken
I like the idea of tinkering with NXT logic on the go, but I verified the behavior that save results in a blank project. Please fix this and will change rating to a five star. Adding remote control would make for a valuable addition as well. Thanks!
Not what I thought it was
This app may be good for the average home user but not for the pro or the educator using it in their classroom. The only duration you have is time and you need to install other software to link it to your robot. Would be nice if it was more linked into the nxt mindstorms software.
The only thing this is really missing is a way to remote control the robot without having to program it. After the build, the fun part is joy riding with it, not just watching it do a few commands.
