About ThingSpeak

ThingSpeak is a cloud-based internet of things (IoT) analytics platform designed to help organizations across a variety of industry verticals including energy, education, farming, and more collect, visualize, and evaluate data in real-time.

Enhance your computational skills

Reviewed on 2020/11/12


Any product from MathWorks deserves respect and this app is a great addition to the software that is already installed on your computer. This app helps to work on the same code on the desktop/ laptop, while on the go. It provides wonderful flexibility for assessing and modifying the code , while not being in front of the computer.


This tool is not a replacement to your product on your computer. I still feel the main functionality lies on working on the computer; however, this tools helps in supporting the task.
