Bitty Data Logger V1.2.0

Yesterday, Bitty Software released a new version of the Bitty Data Logger application. If you're unfamiliar with the app, check it out at the Bitty Software web site.

The new release makes the following improvements:

  1. A new "Results" screen lists up to 30 data files.
  2. Data can now be uploaded at any time.
  3. New "Extra Data" screen provides the opportunity to add a time and distance value after a test run has completed. A speed value is automatically calculated.
  4. The Activate / Deactivate button is now named Start / Stop and is coloured green and red.
  5. The Settings screen now allows a Project Name and a Team Name to be entered.
Bitty Data Logger is currently being evaluated for use in the Bloodhound model rocket car competition for schools, Race for the Line. This is of course, *very* exciting!
Bitty Data Logger is free and available for both iOS and Android. The code needed for the micro:bit is available as a hex file from the Bitty Software web site or you can create it yourself, with guidance available in the form of a couple of coding tutorials, one for C/C++ and one for the PXT tool.

The application is great for school or personal projects:
