“ANDRUINO is a simple tool to help you control your Arduino (or clone) from your Android phone. It’s both an Android app and an Arduino program. Andruino has a simple Android user interface to 1) control Arduino’s digital and PWM pins 2)¬† send text commands to Arduino 3) and receive data from¬† Arduino over Bluetooth serial using the ever popular and really cheap HC-05 Bluetooth over serial module or its siblings.”
