Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on Android and iOS

Post by EmilJ » Fri Mar 24, 2017 3:59 pm

Hi,

I'm developing a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device using the Microchip RN4020 module. I want to make an app for Android and iOS to communicate with my device.

I'm looking for a development tool for my app and I'm currently considering LiveCode and Xamarin. I hope someone can answer my questions to help me find out if LIveCode is the right choise for my app.

Does LiveCode support BLE on both Android and iOS?

If so, is it built in or does it require a third party extension?
Iis it available in the open source version or does it require an Indy/Business license?
Are there any code examples?


Emil

Hi...i am a new user here. In my case I need a way to connect one device with other. The idea is to transfer a little amount of data, and, if possible, perhaps a file with about 10-20Kbyts.Can your plugging allow to connect 2 devices , that run the very same lua application, and can send/receive information between two devices?

This is a LiveCode extension so it won't work with Lua. It also only supports iOS right now so you wouldn't be able to use it on Android. I haven't used it myself so someone else needs to say if it will support communications and file transfers between two devices.
