Does Thunkable support Bluetooth LE


#1

Hi,
Does Thunkable support Bluetooth LE?


#2

I’ve never used or tried it, but I’m sure it’ll work if you use the extension.


#3

Probably, it’s an AI2 official extension, no? So it must work

The unique extensions that report bugs is Notification Extension by taifun


#4

I believe the BLE extension is working for Thunkable. Can you check?

Hi All,

This is an older thread, but I thought I’d volunteer a “yes”, in case you haven’t started.

I’ve started playing with BluetoothLE on Thunkable, and have been successful with StartScanning, DeviceFound, FoundDeviceAddress, ConnectWithAddress, (when) Connected, StopScanning, SupportedCharacteristics, SupportedServices, RssiChanged, and DisconnectWithAddress.

I downloaded the BluetoothLE extension from:

http://appinventor.mit.edu/extensions/data/extensions/edu.mit.appinventor.BluetoothLE.aix

Note that the app will work as a compiled apk, but maybe not as live development (an extension plus live development problem). Please see:

Thanks,
BillG

hhhhh i believe that i can fly too xD but in fact that’s not true :pensive:
there is already a bluetooth functions in your app without any real tutorial about how to use it with BLE modules

Why i feel that no one in thunkable team dont know how their own ship work xD

Layout flexibility, Connectivity(BLE), Sensors & DB are the key to conquer the world with this platform … & im sure that ur platform is the best until now but i would love to see it more flexible than now because my plans are waiting :grin:

Hi @HMZMR,

In case you haven’t run across it, there are some BLE “Documentation and Resources” here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y2Jk90BRskLKw3ex3yvftBmaEm7kyCcVCQy8yGAmtA4/pub

It says “private”, but it’s actually mostly open.

Thanks!
