"Great product for rapidly deploying IoT apps"

Comments: My employer contracted with Blynk to build some custom functionality for monitoring environmental parameters. We had a great experience, they designed several new UI elements to solve our needs, they've always been extremely easy to deal with and responsive to my questions. I would recommend them to anyone looking to solve a unique problem with IoT!

Pros: I've used Blynk for both personal and business use. I've used it for several small IoT projects in my house (monitoring pets, lights, temp, etc), and my employer also contracted with Blynk to perform some custom functions for an application we needed. They excel at customer service and I would recommend them for either small or large projects.

Cons: There are some features I'd like them to include, like a web dashboard. That said, this isn't really a criticism of their current offering, it's more of a feature request. I have no negatives to comment on the features they do offer, it has worked surprisingly well for me in many different applications.

"Wonderful Platform for Completing IoT Based Projects"

Comments: Overall, my experience was worth it, considering it a free platform on my phone. Anyone interested can build his own home automation project with it. This platform even doesn't require any expert to handle it, anyone who can operate a smart phone, can operate this product also. I would really like to suggest this app to any friend or junior student of mine who is interested in IoT.

Pros: Being a student of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, I was overwhelmed by this Blynk platform when i used it to complete an IoT based term project.
It is absolutely user friendly. Even those who have not worked with IoT yet, can find this product handy. this app helped me connect my home appliances together and enabled me to control them with google assistant, which is a totally different platform. Integration of other hardware and software platform e.g. IFTTT is quite convenient than any other product.
In this developing sense of IoT nowadays, its demand is going to grow for sure. Hence this app can surely help people to implement their dream projects with both personal and business purposes.

Cons: The problem that i faced using this software was, it may give a person other than me the access to my project without my consent. Though good part is , it can integrate voice controlled based IoT models to ensure user security and privacy .
I found some of the widgets locked, but those were of no use to me.
other than those, i did not had to face any other inconvenience regarding this app.

"Go to IoT application!"

Comments: I have been making various IoT projects with this application and the most recent one was a smart lock. Set up a server and unlock your door with your phone.

Pros: This application provides a vast platform for even people who really cannot code various functionalities while integrating wireless communication with their projects. This is just simply amazing; the option to drag and drop whatever you want!

Cons: Token authentication key keeps on expiring and needs to be renewed every single time whenever you want to reconnect.

"Blynk make IoT easier!"

Comments: I like the plenty examples you get from internet, also, the many plugins that are available are awesome. I use it for home purposes on my DIY hobby, but I don't see any problem for a productive use. It can be very reliable if you do it correctly.

Pros: Blynk is a nice platform to join many pieces of software and hardware into a simple interface. Your imagination is the limit (it can be above the sky). As a DIY enthusiast, I loved Blynk! You can connect your Arduino, Raspberry and much other development boards to an Android application, you can use Python, C, or anything to create an interface, its flexible! I made my home aquarium connected to my phone, computer and even my car, also, some of my home lights are controlled by the same network, so I can control them from anywhere in the world. Oh, the Christmas lights are there too. Merry Christmas!

Cons: Nothing yet. Maybe at the beginning (I started using this at least 3 years ago) the documentation was hard to understand and the examples didn't help. Maybe that was fault of my learning curve, not the platform itself. But today is really easy to use and there are many plugins to it. So that is not really a con.

"Great product! But there plenty of room for improvement"

Comments: It was so much fun!

Pros: 1) Blynk allows to Integrate some pretty impressive features in the project at a record time, mainly because the use of it's available widgets will dramatically reduce the amount of code to be written
2) for the same reasons mentioned above, Blynk can be a powerful tool to introduce absolute arduino beginners to a lot of principles and allows them to use these functionalities without the need to learn everything before
3) the amount of customization possibilities offered by blynk is very superior to any other available app

Cons: I think they can offer more widgets for completely direct communication between the device and the smartphone (Mainly I'm talking about Bluetooth). Also i really wish that they consider offering a widget for reading from the phone's serial USB terminal so we can have the possibility to read data from the device by connecting it to the smartphone by OTG cable (at least in the Android version of the app)
