To make it easier to work with Mynewt based devices, Adafruit has published a free utility for iOS (with Android support planned in the future) that can perform the following tasks:
- View live updates of the tasks present in the task scheduler
- View live updates of any statistics defined in the firmware
- Send BLE UART text in both directions if the BLE UART service is present
- Perform firmware updates over the air
You can get the application from the Apple iTunes App Store searching for 'Adafruit Mynewt'.
