I had the IPad set to continuous scanning and the data would not update at all, but it would constantly update the data on the android version of the nRF Connect app.
Have you tested the nRF Connect app on a iOS device? I wonder if it’s the same for you and others?
Your right IF I had the ability or funds to pay to have a custom iOS & Android App made and approved by the Apple & Google Play stores so other people could download it.
Building a custom app is not a rabbit hole I want to go down right this second but I do think I have the ability format a custom webpage that uses Web BLE on a Chrome Browser so we can visualize data being sent out over BLE on the Gen3 devices and also send data from the browser to the Gen3 device.
I feel like if we created a more fully featured Web BLE template for everybody it would be helpful.
A WEB BLE template that showed the following would cover a large part of what a person would want to do with the devices.
#1. Show us how to send a Int, float, Char, and String from a Gen3 device to the Chrome Web BLE webpage. Basically just like @rickkas7 ‘s Web BLE example but with the different data types also being sent over and displayed individually on the webpage.
#2. Show how we can type data into a form field on the BLE Webpage, hit a submit button and then have that data stored as a new variable or char on the Gen 3 device so we can interact with the device we build with the new Gen3 brains.
Similar to what you did with your SoftAP pages on the Photon in the past to collect data that is used for programming the WIFi info and other data when a person first sets up a new device or product.
@rickkas7 @ScruffR Does that make sense? A BLE Webpage Setup Template version of the Soft AP webpage people used to pass the WiFi credentials to the Photon?
People could then take that and build out their own custom Web BLE setup page by simply modifying the example and then stylizing the page via a easy to use HTML editor/builder.
Building that example is beyond me but I know once I have a good example to follow I could expand from it and then modify the HTML to via a webpage editor and create simple clean user interfaces that are respectable without needing to have to deal with Android & iOS applications.
What are your thoughts on this?
