  • Awesome app!!! Nov 2, 2019

    By XBOX player 360%
    This app is great! I haven’t had any problems. It’s wireless (which is great for people like me who are always tweaking something on the design and are back and forth) you don’t need to start a program it’s just hook up and go. The only problem I’ve really had is when I exit the app and go back in to the editor section I have to the build and go back in but otherwise its awesome

    Now I’m not trying to sound like a spoilt brat, but the remote that comes with it is way to small, and the controls are bad, I think you should make a separate remote that uses joysticks and other buttons. On other thing is, you are losing to vex!! Anyway that is my suggestion, so please read this.

    Good app works for any model. We can also make our own robots and use the custom remote. Just I want to say that you may need to add switches for operating 2 or 3 ports.

  • How this app could be improved Oct 19, 2017

    By Last time quitter
    I like lego mindstorms, it is awesome but I can't say the same for the app. First the build your own controller workspace is too small. Second there are some severe problems with connectivity, sometimes I will let go of the controls and the robot will continue to move, last I think that there should be programmable buttons for the custom controller. Other than that it is a good app.

  • Needs a better update Mar 15, 2019

    I like the app, my students love it as well. The problem is the connectivity. It takes almost 3 minutes to find the Lego Brick, another 2 minutes to sync. 20% of the time it fails. Whenever we try to make the controls, 75% of the time the app crashes

    I have tried this app on an Android phone and a Chromebook. On both it gets as far as connecting to the EV3 with bluetooth then sticks on 'downloading program' for 5 minutes or so, then crashes. No help or advice that I can see. Renders the Mindstorms EV3 a very expensive and slow remote controlled car.

    Sadly, having the same experience as everyone else. After connecting to the brick, the app just says 'downloading program' and that's it. Bit of a poor show from a company that are normally very customer friendly, and especially if, as another poster has mentioned, this product is still on sale in official lego shops. Poor form, Lego.

    Best looking app., doesn't work though. All I get is the downloading screen after selecting the appropriate build. Then lose the download when the build shuts down.

    After pairing with the EV3, the app gets stuck in "downloading program" with no access to any kind of help, instructions or any clue what it's doing or why it's stuck.

    Works great and compared to other apps there is 0.01 second delay. But I would like to see a setting for how many slots there is for more to control on the robot.

  • Nice remote control for Lego Mindstorms Nov 27, 2014

    By ace apertura
    This is a nice app and in particular a very nice idea to use an iPhone as a remote control for the Lego Mindstorms. It's a bit tricky that you need to change the bluetooth settings on the Lego EV3 brick to switch between computer and iPhone every time. That's somewhat annoying but at least doable. The other strange part is that only some of the default robots have remote controls. The other robots that the Lego Mindstorms box comes with have no remote controls. There is a nice custom editor with which you can easily create what you want. But there's not enough space to develop fancy controls because all buttons take up huge real estate on screen. Smaller buttons would be nice to have. Despite those quirks, though, this app is a good idea, and maybe playing with it some more could make it work. BTW: the remotes you developed will be stashed all the way to the right. So you don't need to recreate them every time. Also if you want infrared and bluetooth control at the same time, just make sure to start a program that reacts to infrared before using the bluetooth iPhone app. Then both work simultaneously. Bluetooth connection works like a charm but there's some surprising steps in the procedure that are necessary. Like enabling iPhone on the Lego EV3 brick.

    Before you read this review, please notive that i am summarizing the review about the Commander and the Programmer App. Commander app: 4☆ The app works well I like the fact that Lego has added the create and command section but the only problem is that I can't use it. Programmer App: 0-1 ☆I can't find the app, I have looked all around the play store and App Store and I cannot find it, really deciving. Overall: 3☆

    What a useless experience...Tried 3 different Android devices of various OS versions and none connect. Spent two days trying everything. Borrow an iPad and boom, working within 5 minutes. Sort it out Lego, the reviews on here speak for themselves. Going to be thousands of disappointed kids on Christmas day who can't get it to work on Android. And when Lego support initially say it isn't compatible with Android, only iPad etc....you have to wonder what the heck is going on...

    Doesn't work on Android, tried multiple different devices, phones, tablets, various Android versions, the app won't recognize any EV3 device connected, the same experience with Programmer App. My son is very disappointed. Do not buy until this bug is fixed.
