Pros
All widgets provided was very clear and I have all I need there. Thanks to the developer for making such a great and easy software for IoT.
Blynk has been the first choice for central software at my previous employment and I brought it to my current company. It is very fun and easy to navigate and everyone enjoys it.
Nice widgets are there to make all trackers about your project. You will have a nice dashboard if you try this.
Cons
What I experienced is the server is losing so often.
It seems no more development on current platform, even if already quite complete. It was announced a new enhanced platform to be available, but till now no news.
Large data cant be exported from blynk, in blynk local server database and data is hard to found, MQTT configuration is missing. Temperatures/reading auto delete after a certain readings.

A simple yet still very powerful IoT framework

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It supports a lot of different platforms (ESP8266, Atmel SAM, Atmel AVR, ESP32, STM32F1 and others) using different connection protocols (Serial, Bluetooth serial, various Ethernet modules, various WiFi modules, UMTS, BLE) It’s simple to setup and use The documentation get you started in a short time. It can be freely self hosted

Cons

The free trial is a little too much limiting in my opinion.

IOT, Live interaction with devices with Blynk

Reviewed 4 years ago

overall for home IOT system blynk is best, blynk is not recommnded for industrial use, support is limited i.e forum is availabe, but it takes time to get users/moderators respond. For home automation local blynk server is best, whereas blynk official server is also good optin to avoid diruption in connection.

Pros

Very easy pre programmed scripts almost for every projects available or little modification required, secured and reliablilty in connection. smooth and easy interfaces like button,guages and charts. All the technical setting to set user interface button etc can be configured on mobile.

Cons

Large data cant be exported from blynk, in blynk local server database and data is hard to found, MQTT configuration is missing. Temperatures/reading auto delete after a certain readings.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review. Blynk app is designed for prototyping and personal use. Commercial apps and configuration provides more data storage, MQTT. Also, when you sign up for commercial plan, you get a technical support from Blynk Team within 24-48 hours Commercial version of the platform offers

Very goo IoT application for most situations

Reviewed 5 years ago

Very good service to get a mobile app up and running quickly and interfaces well with blynk specific firmware IoT devices. Does however require external services such as Node-Red to perform more complex operations or as a gateway to non blynk firmware or communications such as MQTT

Pros

Very cost effective able to be run as an onsite service or as a cloud offering Intuitive Mobile App

Cons

Mainly centered around multiple standalone devices and doesn’t handle cross device well Requires external service such as node-red for more complex logic Sharing with other people is limited does not support MQTT

Controlling IoT devices has never been easier

Reviewed 5 years ago

I've been using Blynk to capture data from an atmospheric pressure sensor that is interfaced with an arduino for my research project.

Pros

Blynk supports a wide range of IoT devices. It also adds and updates new devices. This makes Blynk the best app when it comes to controlling IoT devices remotely and on-the-go.

Cons

The payment system to use Blynk is a little odd. It would've been better if there was a onetime premium purchase option.
