I love my ThingView app on my Android phone and use it to remotely monitor data graphically - works like a charm.  But now my wife wants to see the same thing on her iPhone - what are my options?  

 

Thanks for any help/insight you can provide.

You could always open http://www.ThingSpeak.com on your iOS device.

Another option is to follow the instructions here: https://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-add-website-shorcuts-on-iphone-and-ipad-in-safari-ios-7/ to create a shortcut to the ThingSpeak channel and add it to your homescreen.

Thanks Vinod.  While those are good workarounds, they certainly are not as 'nice' as having a dedicated app like the beautifully executed Android app Thingview.   

Any chance someone is working on such a project?  Seems strange to me that this hasn't already been done and that more people are not asking for this? (just curious).

 

Thanks again.

Hi valid8r - I'm not aware of anyone working on an iOS version of the ThingView app or something similar. If you're into developing iOS apps this might be an interesting project for you Smile

If you think about it, an native iOS app may not be more preferable than a web app that accesses ThingSpeak for a number of reasons. For example, a badly written app can run in the background and drain your battery. Presumably Apple has made as many optimizations as possible to Safari to ensure low battery drain. More importantly, any app can only provide a subset of the functionality of the ThingSpeak website and you can get the full experience using the website directly.

Hello I just released Thingview in the app store, it's a simple version, I'll be adding more features in the next months

Here is the link https://itunes.apple.com/uy/app/thingview/id1284878579?mt=8

The app is pretty cool. All the latest apps for free on your Android and iOS devices using Vshare iOS app store.

This would be perfect... if it would be running on iOS9.3.5 as well...so I can use it on an IPhone 4s as well.
Any chance to make it available for iOS < iOS 10 ?
That would be really cool!! Smile
(I have no idea how complicated my request is, though)
