FREE Arduino Android Apps



This android app is yours for FREE. It turns On/Off a light bulb. It speaks when you press a button. It gets grumpy when shaken. It controls any device wirelessly via Bluetooth. These four features, a four dollars value, are all yours for free. You just need to request the APK code by sending me an email at mclawsin at gmail dot com. 

However, if you want to personalize the app with pictures, with voice messages different from the original, and upload it in your android tablet or phone as if you developed or created the app, I can provide such request for a FEE with a minimum contribution of 1 dollar payable through Paypal. Just click the DONATE button below and send your contribution via Paypal.

SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION:

This app is almost identical to the free app.
However, there are some additional features (see below)
To receive this BT Led Controller App for $1:00, 
please click the DONATE button below.



Arduino BT Led Controller App Features:
1. The  same screenshot as in the video.
2. The green button speaks "Device is ON.
3. The red button speaks "Device is OFF".
4. or, Turns off the led by shaking.
5. The connect button list a selection of bluetooth available in your area.
6. No ads eg developers name and website.
7. The app is provided "As Is" ***.


An app that controls six of your home appliances:

A more sophisticated iHackRobot Arduino Android App. The application is a wireless controller that can turn ON and OFF six appliances in your home and even you car ignition by simply swiping the color coded sliders on either ends. The app can also control leds, servos, toy cars and even your robots. The great fun about this app is you can turn OFF all six appliances by simply shaking your smartphone.

Android Bluetooth Arduino



Project 34:  Arduino Controlled by Android

This project shows how to control an andruino Led 
using Bluetooth and Android smartphone.


Android Bluetooth Arduino from JB Wylzan on Vimeo.




HC-05 Circuit Wiring:  
   HC05 Gnd      - Arduino pin Gnd
   HC05 3.3        - Arduino pin 3.3v
   HC05 Tx         - Arduino pin 3 (Tx)
   HC05 Rx         - Arduino pin 2 (Rx)
  
Block Diagram:

Note: use pin 2 and pin 3 for Rx and Tx
Hardware:
HC05 bluetooth 

Arduino phone (samsung galaxy) 
9v battery 
1 LEDconnecting wires
breadboard
Arduino R3 UNO board

Challenges:
1. Try to control 2 leds using the smartphone, 
2. Try to control 3 servos.
3. Create an apps
4. Use smartphone terminal and serial monitor as a chatroom/text messaging
5. Control a robot using an android smartphone bluetooth terminal
6. Control a robot using the some of the iHackRobot apps just like as shown below
