A couple of the exciting features of the app are:
- Automatically program your micro:bit over USB, without needing to drag-and-drop the file onto the micro:bit drive.
- Directly read serial data from your micro:bit for data logging and other fun experiments. This allow the collection of data in real time which can be downloaded in a CSV file for additional analysis in a spreadsheet.
