This is for complete beginners.

The latest version of pfodDesigner lets you design custom menus on your android mobile and generates ALL the arduino code necessary to display those menus on your mobile (via pfodApp) and switch the Arduino outputs on and off.
Absolutely NO programming required.  No Arduino programming and no Android programming. It is all done for you.

Here is an example design.

see the full tutorial at  http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/pfodDesigner/OnOffExample/index.html
The Steps are:-
Step 1) Download pfodDesigner app to your Android mobile https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.forward.pfodDesigner
Step 2) Use the pfodDesigner to design your menu, add a prompt,  add on/off toggle buttons, choose which digital outputs to control, set the text, font size, colour and background colors.  See an interactive preview of your design as you go.
Step 3) Choose which serial connection to use and the baud rate to suit your hardware
Step 4) Click the Write Code to file button to generate ALL the Arduino code need to show your menu and switch the Arduino outputs when you click the buttons.
Step 5) Copy the file to your computer and upload to your arduino board.  Add a bluetooth shield and connect using pfodApp https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.forward.pfodApp
