For those who are building complex projects like robots or home automation, Blynk will save time writing an app for each project. The platform is very flexible and customizable. While designing Blynk, the makers focused on simplifying things, but if you’re into writing more serious code, you’ll have full freedom in your hands.
The Blynk app can make building applications and projects with smartphone network much simpler. It will also allow you to control your development board from anywhere in the world. “Imaging a prototyping board on your smartphone where you drag and drop buttons, sliders, displays, graphs and other functional widgets. And in a matter of minutes these widgets can control Arduino and get data from it.
