Overview

Now Playing! This wireless Bluetooth LE device displays whatever song/artist/album is playing on your iOS device, such as iPhone or iPad. Bonus feature -- use the Circuit Playground Bluefruit's buttons and slide switch to play and pause a track, or skip ahead or backwards to a different track.

Using CircuitPython code and the Apple Media Service library, we can easily connect the CPB to an iOS device, and then automatically retrieve track info. Buttons are assigned to play/pause and track skip, but you can customize them to use many other media control commands!
