There are three types of PocketLabs that work across different platforms. PocketLab Voyager, PocketLab Weather, and PocketLab One (our original PocketLab). We are working very hard on app updates to make compatibility and functionality as uniform as possible across all platforms.

Here is the status of our two apps, each platform:

The PocketLab Web App is available on Chromebook and Mac OSX (click here for instructions on how to see if your Mac is compatible). Use the web app if you want to connect to PocketLab Voyager, PocketLab Weather or PocketLab One on these devices. You can also connect to the web app on an Android tablet or phone using Android 5.0 or later. Android also has a native app that you can download from the Google Play Store.

Using Pocket Labs

I just received a small classroom set of 5 pocket labs.  I am working with Toshiba Chromebooks with my students.  I am just having difficulties getting them to connect to my chromebooks and to the students.  I guess I just have some questions.

1. Can you rename the sensors so that students can see which sensor they are tracking?
