A few data persistence nitpicks aside, I think that Circuit Playground is a solid app with a lot of potential. At $2.99 it sits at the higher end of the App Store pricing structure, so whether or not these tools are worth it is ultimately up to you. Adafruit does say that anyone who purchases the app gets $3 off their next order in their online store, which essentially makes the app free if you are a regular customer.
Solid review with great feedback, this is really helpful for us as we prepare the next update. More features, some fixes and lots of surprises. Visit Circuit Playground’s page!
