[About conditions when using iPad]

You will not be able to connect to the Core using USB. You may only connect using Bluetooth®.

Using Bluetooth® with an iPad, you will notice that the transfer of code to make the robot move takes a long time (Please click here for details of transfer time). Thus, we recommend that you use the Test Mode to review in real time the effects of the code you have entered. That would allow you to use it in the same way as for normal learning.

When using Bluetooth® with an iPad, it is assumed that a single iPad is connected with a single Core. If the Core is connected to multiple operating systems, there is a possibility that code is sent from a different device than the one you think.

At the moment, there is no function allowing you to name devices in order to differentiate multiple KOOV Cores detectable by Bluetooth®.

At the moment, you cannot use the app's sound output such as sound effects or background music.
