Get started with your IoT project with Particle's iPhone app. Connect your Photon, Electron, or Compound device to the Particle Cloud. Tinker, a quick start sandbox will help you get your prototype up and running in minutes. The device inspector goes further, allowing you to call functions and see the event stream off of your devices.
The Particle app allows you to setup your IoT hardware to interact with our Cloud. The app will take you through the entire set-up process step by step until the LED on your board is breathing cyan - indicating it's connected and ready to be programmed!

The Photon is your solution for Wi-Fi connected products or projects. The Photon architecture sits at the heart of a huge range of IoT products, from smart home products to commercial sensor networks.

The Electron is a cellular-connected board.

Both of them are easy to set up and get connected. They are both supported by a comprehensive set of development tools, libraries, and cloud applications so you can focus on making your project work. The app also supports the Raspberry Pi running Particle firmware as well as several compounds - connected microcontrollers from our partners. These include Bluz, Redbear Duo, and Digistump Oak.

Use Tinker and Device Inspector to interact with and debug your devices.

Tinker mode is a quick start sandbox that will help you get your prototype or project up and running in minutes. Tinker exposes basic pin functions through our API, allowing you to read sensor data and blink LEDs by just tapping a pin name on screen -not a single line of code needed. It provides an intuitive environment for tinkering and prototyping even if your Core/Photon/Electron is the first piece of programmable hardware you've ever picked up!

Device Inspector allows you to dive deeper into your devices for advanced on-the-go debugging: Get detailed device information ,read variables, call functions, and see your device event stream.

Unable to connect to wifi

An unbiased user

I recently purchased the photon and was unable to perform the setup via the iPhone app or the CLI. The CLI was able to connect to the photon but hung "Obtaining device information" while attempting to connect it to my wifi network. I was never able to connect to the board's wifi network with my iPhone. I tried flashing on new firmware and resetting my public key as suggested in the docs but to no avail. I would highly recommend avoiding this product.
