Installation and Setup

The Bluefruit LE Connect app provides iOS & Android devices with a variety of tools to communicate with Bluefruit LE devices. These tools cover basic communication and info reporting as well as more project specific uses such as Arduino Pin Control and a Color Picker.

The iOS app is a free download from Apple's App Store. It requires iOS 9 or later and works on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches.

The Android app is a free download from the Google Play Store. It requires Android 4.4 or later.

The app is compatible with these BLE devices from Adafruit, and possibly more:

First off - install the app from one of the App stores listed above if you haven't already.

Enable Bluetooth

If Bluetooth is disabled on your device, enable it by going to Settings->Bluetooth on your iOS device, or the analogous setting on your Android device.

Enable Location Services

If you plan to use the app to send location/GPS data to Bluefruit LE, enable Location Services. Enable it on iOS using Settings->Privacy->Location Services.
