Need Help, New to ALL of this… Where do I start?

So I'd like to create something I think is relatively simple as inexpensively as possible. I'd like to be able to operate a small battery powered toggle servo (range of motion 180*, back and forth- trigger button and reset button) through bluetooth using components that can be synchronized and operated through an app from an iOS or an Android device depending on what OS is has downloaded the app. I'd like the bluetooth range to be as great as possible… is 100 yards or better possible?

I'm not looking for a step-by-step how to, just what comments I need to get started in this project and where I can find a great learning resource for a simple(?) starter project like this.

Thanks!
