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. 

How to tell if your Mac supports Bluetooth Low Energy

The original PocketLab, and PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab Weather need Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to a device. Bluetooth Low Energy is often abbreviated BLE, and sometimes called Bluetooth 4.0 (or later).

Bluetooth Low Energy was introduced widely in 2010, and most new computers started supporting it as they were updated. As of today, about 90% of new devices support this standard.

However, if you have a device that was manufactured several years ago, it may not support Bluetooth Low Energy.
