  • Hi, first I'd like to congratulate for the great work you are doing, I can't wait to develop my first app for MetaWear.
    I was wondering if in the future we can have access to the source code of the static library, and also if there are plans like porting the library to swift or integrate the library with cocoapods.

  • Hey fjbelchi,
    We have definitely been thinking about it but it the meantime our main priority is making this release stable.
  • I'd like more information on interacting with the ANCS service. I want the MetaWear to vibrate when I receive an ANCS notification.
  • I used the iOS API tonight and had a fun time. Threading was a bit weird until I found out all your callbacks return on a background thread. I'm sure there are lots of people including myself who'd love to help and contribute to the API if you were to open source it. 
  • I also would be very happy to help.
