pfodApp (www.pfod.com.au) is a universal Android application for controlling Arduino (or other micros) via bluetooth, wifi/internet with 128 bit security, so you can control your household while you are away.

To date projects using pfodApp include:- remote control of a robotic lawn mower, control of lights and power, garage doors and many others.

The screen above is just a sample. The pfodApp is completely controlled by the Arduino sketch code.  No Android programming is necessary.  All the mobile's screens are specified by short simple strings in the Arduino sketch.  Think simplified html for micros.
See UnoStarter project http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/UnoStarter/index.html for a range of example screens. You can also try out the pfodAppDemo.

The pfodApp is a mature application with detailed documentation and many example projects.
See www.pfod.com.au for examples
 and the gettingStarted guide http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/Android_pfodApp/pfodAppForAndroidGettingStarted.pdf
and pfod message specification guide http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/pfodSpecification.pdf)

The pfodApp can also do data logging and plotting of sensor data from your Arduino, and has a debugging view to help you get your sketch correct.


If you have any problems using pfod you can either contact me directly via contact on www.pfod.com.au
 or post your question here.

Just published a free Android app, pfodDesigner (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.forward.pfodDesigner), that lets you interactively create  and preview custom Android menus to control your Arduino project (via bluetooth or wifi/internet) and then generate the required Arduino code to serve up the menu, via pfodApp, and handle the returned commands.  

No Andriod Programming is required.
You only need to add the action code for each button to the generated Arduino sketch.

The menu designer lets you set colours, font sizes, styles and number of buttons etc. and gives interactive previews of the current design.
Here is a example menu design.  See http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/pfodDesigner/index.html for a full tutorial and www.pfod.com.au for example projects
