Not sure if this is the right place... but what's the easiest way to control arduino related projects using an android phone ??

Sure I know I can buy a BT module and use a virtual serial port... been playing with BT for some time and that's the method I want to use... but I am basicaly asking what's the easiest method to write my own android apps?

This depends on your knowledge. If you're an experienced Android developer but not so experienced in Arduino programming, take the BT way. If you're experienced with Arduino programming and HTML and know enough about WiFi networks this is the easier solution because you don't have to install special applications on the Android, just take the browser and let your Arduino be the web server. With the WiFi solution you can choose if you wanna have a dedicated application or a web application.

Using the phone like a push stick, to push switches, etc. May not be the best, but it's certainly the easiest to incorporate.
