Micro:bit APP for Android

The Micro:bit app for android is not compatible for all devices however it appears that its only key limitation is the device must have Bluetooth 4 and must be android 4.42 or higher.

I have been able to backup the app and successfully side load it onto my ASUS ME176.  A copy of version 1.50 of the app is available to download here.  (The App is copyright BBC and Samsung and is only made available to support use of the Micro:bit on devices wrongly coming up as incompatible by Google Play.  The app has not been modified in any way)

To install just make sure you have install from other sources enabled on your device.
