Making custom applications for Android OS can be difficult unless you have a deep understanding of Java. MIT’s App Inventor removes that barrier by providing an easy to use drag and drop style of coding to App development.
This guide will take you through the steps to create a dedicated app for your IoT project using any of the Particle devices. It will focus on the simple Web Connected LED sketch from Particle, then point out the critical parts of the App Inventor code that will let you send and receive any information to and from the Particle device.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
