This is a simple tutorial to show how to set up Yun Buddy.

Step 1: Get the Arduino Yun on Your Network

If you are using a cable all you have to do is connect the Yun to your router.

If you are using wifi it gets a little more difficult.

By pressing and holding the wifi reset button on the board for 3 seconds the board will be set up as a device that your computer will be able to connect to.

Once connected point your browser to arduino.local.

Here you can configure your device to your network settings

Step 2: Uploading the "Bridge" Example to the Board

http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

I
n the menu go to Tools->Ports->Your Yun

Next go to File->Examples->Bridge->Bridge

Upload the sketch

Step 3: Connecting Yun to Yun Buddy

when you connect to the Yun, the app crashes!

I loaded the app to a iPhone 4s and 6plus andI can not make it connect. Both the Yun and the iPhone are on the same network.

Also the stretch on the Arduino site can not be downloaded. Can I find the sketch elsewhere

Thanks

Yun bubbly crashes first time you hit a button?

Any suggestions?

Very cool application!

This instructables page is pretty thin. You don't show anywhere in the instructions where to get it or any details on what it is. The video link is broken too.

Is it IOS only? I'm looking for an android version.
