Thunkable Bluetooth Example

Newbie to Thunkable but have been successful with App Inventor 2 using Bluetooth. I am not been able to find a complete tutorial on using BLE in Thunkable x since it is different than what I am use to (and from Thunkable Classic). I thought I could open my app inventor app and just recreate in Thunkable but that is not a 1 to 1 straight forward task.
I need to open my app, list Bluetooth connections available, select and connect and receive data from Arduino. I would bet that someone has gone down this path already and could provide an example I could work from. I have searched the Public Library but haven’t found one that matches my needs.

Thanks in advance for anything help you may offer.

I am sad that no one has any advice on this topic for me yet. Did I approach my request incorrectly? If so, I apologize. I am guessing that someone has successfully been down this Bluetooth x road before me. I learn best from seeing other’s examples. Spent lots of time on youtube learning Arduino stuff. Hoped for help from the community…

I made this for you. You may find it useful. Sharing is currently not working, so I can’t share the app now. Maybe I’ll try later so you can remix:


Thanks, Patrick! I’d take it if you have the app also, I appreciate it. Happy Holidays!

Hello all,
I’m trying to connect my (Android phone) to my iMac with BLE. Is this possible?

The Bluetooth device you are trying to connect to must be at least compatible to Bluetooth Specification version 4. It should also have a characteristic UUID with READ mode.

I have a bluetooth USB adapter which should in theory mean it can connect to bluetooth 4.0… I think.

Apple uses a slightly different specification and sometimes you only need to supply part of the UUID and therefore I will not be able to give you more details as I use Windows.

Aha, thanks, that’s good to know.
