Also i'd like to announce Arduino Uno r3 support in ArduinoCommander 3.2 - you asked for it :)
PS. Please review your app rating  on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=name.antonsmirnov.android.arduinocommander) if you were not satisfied with no Uno r3 support, now it's done!

I've installed Google Play and installed the app through it. However, still no luck. Are there any log files that I could see to find out what's going wrong on my device?

Usually, wrong baud rate is the reason. Make sure you've set the same bad rate in app settings as you use in arduino sketch. Write me on email if it does not help.

Hi, all.

I'm happy to announce that starting v3.4 ArduinoCommander supports Arduino Mega board.
I was unable to test it carefully as i don't have Mega board so please report me if you have any problems.

Hello again!

Starting ArduinoCommander 3.6 you can generate PWM output using JavaScript script:

Now you can use all JavaScript power in order to get PWM output you wish, for example:
Code: [Select]
function generate() {
  return 127 + 127 * Math.sin(
    new Date().getTime() / 5000 * 2 * Math.PI);
}

How do you think, is it cool?  :)

Starting this moment you can find news and features descriptions there.
Thank you.

PS. You can also vote for new features there.

I am trying to connect using USB OTG cable converter on Samsung Galaxy S3.
My UNO is discovered in USB devices as /dev/bus/usb/002/003
I also have the Standard Firmata sketch installed
I tried every baud rate but it won't connect.

Any ideas anyone?

If have an android phone spare so I thought I might use it for my weather station.

Much better than old 7 segment displays.

ArduinoCommander is a great application, I went through all the information and was really
impressed with the displays available.

Unfortunately my phone uses version 2.1 and ArduinoCommander sets version 2.2  as the  minimun.
So its not available on the  google Market for me and anyone else with 2.1 or lower.

I sent them an email to ask if it was possible to change to 2.1
It maybe there are some API's they need from 2.2 and  its not possible.

Anyone else with the same problem?

I am Brazilian and not write english very well, but does anyone know how I can communicate to the arduino uno with a tablet Sansung through arduinocommander (android)?
I can only transmit data from arduino to the tablet, but can not issue commands arduinocommander to the plate.

I have the same problem, I connect it to my tablet and my arduino turns on but it wont show up on the USB devices tab.
How can I fix that?

Hi, it's difficult to say actually. The most popular (and obvious reason) is that people just forget to upload StandardFirmata sketch or set the same baud rate in app settings that is set in sketch. Try it.

Please welcome another app from the ArduinoCommander author - ArduinoDroid.
It's Arduino IDE for Android. Read about it in blog:

Hey guys, great program, quick question though.  I am planning on using a phone that is not a USB host to run the program to control the arduino. Does it work to buy a USB host shield for the arduino and connect it that way?

I'd like to share a tip that may help people having problems making the app work with their tablets. The short story is that having a USB OTG port is not enough by itself, certain configuration files should be in place as explained here:
http://tabletrepublic.com/forum/novo-7-paladin/usb-host-ip-not-supported-1136-2.html

You can create them manually, but the easier solution is to use this great app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.usbhostdiagnostics&hl=en&rdid=eu.chainfire.usbhostdiagnostics. After doing this step the ArduinoCommander app now works fine with me :)

hey straddlethemoon ,
You can install the app on any android tab without using Google play store.
You have to download the app first from any tab with Google play store and you need APK extractor application
then after the program is installed you can take the .apk file to your tab, install the application and enjoy ;)

AbdulRahman.
