In this tutorial we will see how to turn on the smartphone torch using the Micro:bit card.
This is why we are going to create two programs: a mobile application with App Inventor for the smartphone and a makecode program for the Micro:bit card.
Here is the makecode program which allows you to connect the Micro:bit card to the smartphone and send a message containing the order to turn on the smartphone torch.
We are going to create a mobile application named ‘allumer_torche’ with App Inventor which allows you to receive a message from the Micro:bit card.
We propose to create the design of the application, with the following visual:
To program the application, App Inventor offers us to use the Blocks space, which allows you to create a program in the form of a block diagram. Very easy to use but requiring a little programming logic.
Here is the program of the application created in the Blocks area of the Inventor App:
