Hands on with the BBC micro:bit iOS app

I’ve had a quick play with the BBC micro:bit app for iOS, which, on first impressions seems to work well. Unfortunately, unlike the Android app, the iOS app is simply a way of transferring programs onto the micro:bit and does not allow the micro:bit to interact with the phone at this stage. For example, on the Android app, the micro:bit could notify you of an incoming call. Hopefully this functionality will be available within future app updates.

I’ve made a brief video of pairing the device and flashing code… I’ll blog about the app further once I’ve had a chance to use it in the classroom.
