Please post links here. I've not tried any of these, I'm open to suggestions.


Normally smartphone events are tightly coupled to your phone device itself. When your cell phone is ringing, your phone speaker plays a ringtone. When you get a new text message, your phone displays it on its screen. Wouldn't it be thrilling to make thoses phone events visible somewhere else, on your wearable, in your living room, on your robot, in your office or where ever you want it to occur? Or would you like to use your smartphone sensors, like the accelerometer, light sensor, compass or your touchscreen to control other devices? Amarino is a toolkit, basically consisting of an Android application and an Arduino library which will help you to interface with your phone in a new dimension. You can build your own interfaces almost without any programming experience.

Arduino Commander

Control your Arduino board from your Android device over Bluetooth, Ethernet or USB (Diecimila, Duemilanove, Uno r1/r2/r3, Mega, Leonardo, Nano) using WYSIWYG interface, Android sensors or JavaScript script.

Standard features:
discover and connect to Arduino board:
over bluetooth (Bluetooth shield like Sparkfun bluetooth modems or these is required)
over ethernet (W5100-based ethernet shield (official or these) and sketch are required)
over USB (USB Host mode support on android device and Android 3.1+ are required)
over USB as Android Accessory (USB Host shield like these, Android 3.1+ and sketch are required)
display board firmware version, name and Firmata protocol version
set pin mode (analog/digital input/output, pwm)
get/set pin values
LED and pin mode animation
read messages from the board (Firmata String Sysex message)
beautiful WYSIWYG interface for any screen dimensions
free, no ads
Advanced features:
arduino sensors (getting values from android sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, ...) and settings as pin PWM output)
save and load pins configuration (from the file)
voice commands (use Android speech input to set pin modes and values)
Arduino Mega board support
PWM JavaScript generator (generate PWM output using JavaScript script)
