Adafruit App Drops

Out pals at adafruit have just released Circuit Playground, an app for iPhone and iPad that combines a bunch of handy electronics references and calculators in one attractive interface. It’s $2.99 from the AppStore. An Android version is reportedly in the works, but I understand the adafruit folks are not in too much of a hurry to horn in on the good work that Demetrio Iero is already doing with ElectroDroid.

      1. Is this just a branding of Circuit Sidekick or is it meant to replace it? I purchased Circuit Sidekick, and I wonder what the roadmap is between the two.

  1. Again, Adafruit leans towards the purchasers instead of the innovators. Good business sense, is suppose. Very illustrative as to why you should support other vendors.
