  Blynk is a platform with iOS and Android apps to control
  Arduino, Raspberry Pi and the likes over the Internet.
  You can easily build graphic interfaces for all your
  projects by simply dragging and dropping widgets.
    Downloads, docs, tutorials:
    Blynk community:  
    Social networks:  
  Blynk library is licensed under MIT license
  This example code is in public domain.
  This example shows how to use ordinary Arduino Serial
  to connect your project to Blynk.
  Feel free to apply it to any other example. It's simple!
             USB HOWTO:

// You could use a spare Hardware Serial on boards that have it (like Mega)
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial DebugSerial(2, 3); // RX, TX

#define BLYNK_PRINT DebugSerial
#include <BlynkSimpleStream.h>

// You should get Auth Token in the Blynk App.
// Go to the Project Settings (nut icon).
char auth[] = "YourAuthToken";

void setup()
  // Debug console

  // Blynk will work through Serial
  // Do not read or write this serial manually in your sketch
  Blynk.begin(Serial, auth);

void loop()
