Particle Tinker app for Android
Get connected and start building your Internet of Things project right away with Particle, the companion app to the Photon, a tiny but powerful Wi-Fi development board from the team at Particle. Your Photon and this app are all you need to get started with your project or prototype; the kit comes pre-loaded with our firmware libraries and is connected to the cloud out of the box. Download Particle to easily connect your Photon to a Wi-Fi network in a few simple steps. No coding required. The app will take you through the entire set-up process step by step until the LED on your board is breathing cyan - indicating it's connected and ready to be programmed!

Open source project
- Get the latest stable version of Android Studio
- Once you have Android Studio installed, launch it, and from the "Welcome to Android Studio" screen, pick "Open an existing Android Studio project". When it prompts you for the project location, point it at the top-level 'build.gradle' file in the repo.
- Once AS has finished its initial cogitating on the project, hit the "play" button on the toolbar to build and run the app on a device.
Q: I'm getting an error at build time, "The type java.nio.file.OpenOption cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files"
A: You can ignore this error. That class is never referred to, it's just the build system complaining. See https://github.com/square/okhttp/issues/1052 , "OkHttp is careful to not exercise that code (and SPDY) where it is unsupported."
