Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect for Android

Screen Shot 2015-02-25 at 01.44.37

It’s been a long time coming, but Android finally gets some of the love it deserves with our very first Android app … Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect! What started out as a port of Bluefruit LE Connect for iOS quickly grew legs of its own and there are a couple small differences between the versions that are worth mentioning:

  • The iOS app supports Pin I/O mode, which allows you to get and set pins on the Arduino. This didn’t make it into the Android version (yet!).
  • The Android app DOES, however, support easy over the air firmware updates to Bluefruit LE boards, and adds support for dynamically entering Beacon data (standard Beacon or UriBeacon) over the air.

These feature differences will even out in the near future, but that’s the state of affairs today.

The codebase behind the app is still in BETA, and it’s early days so there are no doubt bugs, and we strongly recommend at least Android 4.4 for anything with BLE (Android 4.3 is extremely buggy for BLE), and Android 5.0.x is even better if possible.

If you have a BLE-enabled Android 4.4 or higher device, feel free to grab Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect from the Google Play Store and let us know what you think!
