The goal of this project is to get a CC3200 connected to a Blynk app on either your Android or iOS device. Blynk is an IoT platform that lets you create a custom mobile app to communicate with an internet connected microcontroller.
The Texas Instruments CC3200 LaunchPad is a great candidate for this project. It's powerful Wi-Fi SoC allows us to easily connect to the internet and the on-board BMA222 Accelerometer and TMP006 infrared temperature sensor will let us read some useful data without any external components.
The Blynk App
First, let's create the mobile application. To start, create a Blynk account by installing the Blynk app on your Android or iOS device. In the app, click the button to create a new project. Name your project, and select TI-CC3200-LaunchXL for your hardware. You will also see an Auth Token created for you. This is specific to your project and how the Blynk App will identify the CC3200 LaunchPad. Go ahead and email this token to yourself so you can copy and paste it into your app later.
Next, add the necessary widgets to your app with the button. Add 3 Graph widgets, 1 Button widget, and 1 Value Display widget. Configure them as show in the screenshots below.
