A new release of the blessTags application

      In this version, the software is able to manage a wonderful new SensorTag: Nordic Thingy:52 – produced by Nordic Semiconductor. The following SensorTag’s characteristics are supported:  accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, orientation, temperature, humidity, barometer, color, key, output lines, LED, and the sensor configuration. The integration with gadgets was done at the level of compass, wireless presenters for PowerPoint and remote control for PC applications.
      The blessTags applications fully support events (able to trigger a visual or/and an audible warning or/and a data recording process) and activities (several different actions will be executed when a specific event will take place) for the Nordic Thingy:52 SensorTag.
     Two new options (only in the full version) were introduced in the configuration panel. These options allow to: (a) set the priority for the blessTags application and (b) remove several of the blessTags restrictions. 
    Regarding the first option, from the configuration menu, based on it a priority level for the application can be selected. Five different priorities are allowed:   Realtime - highest priority, High, Above normal, Normal (the program priority by default) and Below normal. This option can be used mainly to improve the speed of the data acquisition, especially when we use a faster SensorTag like Nordic Thingy:52 (with a movement data acquisition up to 200 Hz) or a modified software version for the CC2650STK.
     The second configuration option removes several software restrictions, such as (a) the lower limit used to acquire the acceleration for the CC2650STK or (b) the Device Name (0x2A00 characteristic) – right now a custom name can be used for each SensorTag.
