Unable to download IotNode App

Category: Software

I am unable to download the Analog Devices IOT Node app on IOS from the UK. When I click on It says that the app is not currently available in your country or region. Can someone lead me or provide steps on to how to run the hello_world bluetooth example using an ADICUP3029 please?

I have used applications like LightBlue and other BLE apps on IOS and although I can connect to the ADICUP3029 using Bluetooth. The output looks like the following: It gives an error initially until I select "listen for notifications" on the LightBlue IOS app, then the Data sent notification is there on the console,. Then I click notify (on IOS app) and then it starts accepting data - but I can only see a null value. See screenshots. 



Your help would be much appreciated.

  • BTW, your team announced on the user guide page that would release IoTNode Source Code for Android. It showed the date was 2016. I think AduCM3029 is a very powerful MCU. Bad design resources and weak developer support ruined it. If you fellows have ever looked up what talked on Reddit@ or other online HW hobbist communities, even an undergraduate knows WT* support ADI will give. All these things are just like the poor condition of IotNode sample app.

  • Hi Brandon, Thank you for your reply and I appreciate that it is summer vacation and lots of people are on holiday. 

    Its unfortunate that there is no future plan to update the app or even a way to download and use the deprecated app. As you mentioned, the examples provided still use the IOT node app and some modification is needed to use the apps which makes it difficult for a non-proficient user, or a user that is still learning. I hope that some effort can be made to provide some guidance on where to start. 

  • I appreciate your frustration as well. I can tell you that I managed to get it to work by studying and modifying the HelloWorldBLE example, and creating an app for android on MIT App Inventor which receives strings and displays them. It took a little bit of effort but the downloadable BLE module on MIT App inventor and a couple of youtube videos made it possible. 

  • Thanks for your helpful alternative solution, I will try it.
