Circuit Playground 1.6.1 – optimized for iPhone 5 & remembers your input
Hot on the heels of v1.6, Circuit Playground’s 1.6.1 update takes full advantage of the iPhone 5’s four inch display, adding newly optimized layouts throughout the app. This latest update also streamlines user interface elements for all iOS devices.
Plus – every calculator & converter now remembers your input values and mode selections, so you can always pick up where you left off from a previous session. And if need be, all input values can be reset via the Options menu. This feature was available for a few calcs previously, but now works throughout the app.
Be sure to grab the 1.6.1 update from the App Store if you haven’t already. And if you did – I deem you awesome!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
