Hey’a - recently built a small Boron based project for my local club, and we have a couple of folks who would need/want to administer the device. Folks were excited that there’s the Particle IOT mobile app, but it appears that it doesn’t understand sharing a device as part of a product - only devices which you, personally, have activated/setup.
Am I missing something or is this planned? Seems the app doesn’t get a lot of love, and mobile is kind of a thing now.
Shared account for a device - Yes, I see that option. With emphasis on security, and 2-factor authentication, this seems like the wrong thing to do.
I haven’t used blynk, but I assume this along the same lines of 3…
Build an app - Can do. Distributing the app is quite a pain tho, esp on iOS. Android is not a problem to sideload an apk, but TestFlight/xcode is a right pain in the backside.
In short, the mobile app has some useful features - call functions, see events, etc - and even while limited in features, it supports the particle login process and I would think that would/could also include sharing access to a product. Which apparently it does not.
At least one of the team can work around it by accessing the web console on ipad, and it apparently does a decent enough job that it’s usable…and product sharing works there, which is really what we wanted.
I think @chipmc post a month or so ago was around this same context of a mobile app that has some product features/functionality in it. Similar discussion around build your own app, build a web app or use other web IoT application s (I.e. Blynk) was discussed.
