How does WiFi connect work?

Hi,

I was reading through the documentation. I believe connecting an IoT device to a WiFi router easily is an important challenge.

I saw that you use the phone app to do this. How does this work in detail?

How does the Spark device and the smartphone app connect before the device is connected to the WiFi network?

Thanks,
Kerry
