Easy Arduino Control from your iPhone, iPod Touch

Here is an easy to implement solution to add a phone-based remote to your Arduino project:

Add a “BLE” Shield from “RedBear Labs

Download the Arduino IDE component from the RedBear website

Download the App from iTunes

Granted, this first version of the APP is kind of very basic, you can only turn pins on/off. For something like emulating a volume knob, you will need something that will generate pulses. I am sure more features will be added to the App interface

    Have you seen simular solutions for Android phones / tablets. I am dreaming of having your gui in the middle of my Galaxy S2 screen sorrounded by buttons for volume, source, setup and dim. Arduino with network shield should make it possible to make an app on the android, but I have absolutely no skills to try and undertake such a project.

    I love your site btw and I am currently using your control system slightly modified by “Corpius” (at TPA forum) with my B2. I have another more advanced build “on the table” so to speak.

    Best regards

      Thanks. Another way is to use the network shield and connect through WIFI as Corpius is planning to do You could implement the controls in a webpage and it could be used in any device. Seems that Corpius has the programming skills to build an Android App, so I will also be following his project (I don’t have the skills to write Android or iOS apps)

    I think that I’ll start working on control via a network shield very soon. The should iake it fairly easy to control it by a windows application. At the moment i’m setting up a website. When this is finished I’ll definitely publish it there!
    I haven’t found the time yet to start making Android apps yet…
