My cat: I don’t know what you are and I don’t know where you came from..... but you scare me and I hate you
Sphero just chilling:👁👄👁
Anyways I really like this and is has been keeping me and my siblings amazed for hours! Get it! You wont regret it!
We have used this as an introduction to programming a robot for year 4 students and it has been very simple to set-up and use on the latest machines
Updates no longer working
Great app that we have been using successfully in schools.
However, the last 2 updates (4.2.0 and 4.2.2) no longer let the Sphero2s connect with the iPad2s we have (iOS 9.3.5) despite the app/device compatibility notes saying they should!
Result is 30 iPad2s and 34 Sphero2s that we cannot use.
Please can we have access to a roll back to the version 4.0.2 that does work?
