Good Starting point, but some issues

I'm using the Sphero SPRK on a Windows 8.1 desktop and also an 8.1. tablet. The SPRK connects to the app ok, but if the user moves off the Sphero app screen (to another Windows screen - email for example), the app loses connection with the SPRK. When you go into the Bluetooth settings it indicates the SPRK is still paired - but the app doesn't recognize it. There's no way to just "refresh" the app - it indicates it's searching for the Sphero SPRK, but it never finds it. Removing the SPRK from the Bluetooth settings and re-pairing fixes it, but that is just not very user friendly. I like the interface for guiding the user on getting used to the Sphero. Before jumping into programming it and doing all the "cool things" you want to do, it's definitely worth your time to fully explore the app. There is a lot to the little robot...just stick with the app long enough to get used to it. It'll be worth if for you in the long run. (I'm hoping they fix the connection issues though)

BB8 compatible?

Want to know if this app can control BB8 before buying it.. given that there is no BB8 app for Windows mobile.

Thank you for supporting WP. It made my Sphero purchase possible and the app works really well. Wish Ollie had an app.

Nice! But the video plays pink and the update Sphero stays at 0% forever... And when are the games coming? And the macro recorder? They're essential for Sphero...

App works great! I bought a Sphero because Orbotix made apps for Windows! Please bring some of the other Sphero apps here as well. Keep em coming and I'll buy the Ollie when it comes out. Sphero is a lot of fun!

Couldn't get it to pair at first with my Nokia 928 running 8.1 Dev Preview. Worked on Surface RT however. Then back to 928 and seems to work. On phone, app locks up randomly and the movies play all pink. Doesn't seem to be all that responsive, but haven't played with it on another platform, so nothing to compare it too. So far after a few hours, I call it so-so. Hopefully will keep improving however, as we want it to work. :)

With the updates were as current as Android is.. And I also wish there was a controller here for Ollie! Not having the controller is the only reason I don't buy the Ollie...

Great app! Looking forward to SPRK lessons!

Enjoying Sphero and the extended app support on Windows and Windows Phone! Looking forward to Macrolab and OrbBasic so I can leverage some of the SPRK content with my kids. Gameification is a great way to introduce STEM - and hope the cross platform support helps teachers / schools realize they can drop the platform religion...
