    Thanks Sal for your comments on the article TI: Sensortag CC2650 . This is for you and those who are playing with TI SensorTag!

    I've updated the repository of the Texas Instrument (TI) SensorTag CC2650. The repository can be found here . As you may know TI doesn't update the repository anymore. The original last open source repository of the application can be found here .

    I've wrote an article last year as I migrated and updated the repository:

    your app must now have the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION or ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION permissions
